Kona man charged in boat assault



(KPUA) A 39-year old Kona man has been charged with assault following a confrontation last Tuesday aboard a commercial dive boat. Police responding to a 12:04 p.m. call say the man reportedly boarded the vessel in waters off Kohanaiki Beach Park while a dive tour was in progress, got into an argument with the 54-year old captain, punched him, then jumped off the boat. 

Cheyenne James Gaspar of Kailua turned himself in to police on Thursday and was charged with third degree assault.
