Traverse City police on Saturday responded to the boat launch on the Boardman River near Park Street on the report of an assault. Upon arrival, a 48-year-old TC man stated he had been attempting to launch his boat when the suspect got off a boat swearing and then struck him several times. The suspect stated the victim was taking too long to launch his boat and this had angered him. The suspect, a 33-year-old TC man, was over the limit to operate a watercraft legally, arrested for operating a watercraft while intoxicated and lodged in the Grand Traverse County Jail. The victim declined to press charges for the assault.
