A MetroParks ranger was giving a man a ticket involving an alcohol violation Thursday afternoon when the man took a swing at the officer.
That resulted in the man's arrest, according to a MetroParks sergeant.
The incident, dispatched about 6:16 p.m., occurred in the 100 block of Monument Avenue at RiverScape MetroPark.
No one was injured.
The man will be charged with the alcohol offense as trespassing and assault on a law enforcement officer. He was taken to the Montgomery County Jail.
