Skinny dippers busted for after hours pool party

BENJAMIN HOWARD ALVIAR

Collier County sheriff’s deputies ended an early morning pool party Friday after they found two men and a woman skinny dipping in a private hot tub after hours.

Benjamin Howard Alviar, 35, of the 16000 block of Arbor View Boulevard, North Naples, faces charges of possessing not more than 20 grams marijuana and obstructing an officer.

Doyle Joseph Cannell, 28, of Bristol, Conn., and Breanna K. Cobb, 21, of Elizabethton, Tenn., each face a lesser charge of obstruction.

Deputies were called to the Dunes gated community around 5:30 a.m. for complaints of people yelling and swimming in a pool that closes to residents after dusk. When they arrived on scene, deputies found two men and one woman — all nude — in the hot tub area. They jumped in the pool and tried to swim away.

“The cops are here, run!” Alviar told his friends, according to reports.

Alviar was told to put his trunks back on. Cannell and Cobb swam away from deputies and hid under a waterfall in the pool. None of the three live in the Dunes.

When asked whether a marijuana pipe near the pool belonged to him, Avliar threw it into the lake and became agitated. He was eventually placed in a patrol car. Cannell and Cobb were asked to clean up empty beer cans near the pool.

Is pot legal there?

If pot being illegal stopped people from having it I would be fine keeping it illegal. Truth is our laws don't prevent a single person who wants to find it from purchasing it and in truth the black market system we have inadvertently created makes buying pot incredibly easy for teens , much much easier than alcohol. Pot is only a text away. No photo ID required.

With this knowledge it's time we pull our heads out if the sand and take control of the billion dollar pot industry.

Allowing criminals to run the pot industry is where most of the problems we associate with pot comes from.

Swimming away from the police to escape... in a POOL? Even high I'm not sure how they expected that to work.

It was the booze that made them do it. Remember the part about having to clean up their beer cans?

I probably own more guns than you.

You miss the point. Kids can easily buy pot at school or from friends. By taking pot away from the criminals and retailing it only at licensed stores by adults we can make it significantly more difficult for underage kids to buy pot.

It is much easier for a kid to buy pot than cigarettes or beer. That's s-----.

I'm not against legalizing it, but you're argument isn't really valid. Legalizing it would make it as hard for underage kids to get as....beer. Doesn't exactly take a mastermind to do that as a kid.

Maybe I'm just dense this morning but I just do not understand your reasoning. If pot were to become legal, then those 21 and older would be able to buy it and the illegal dealers would then be competing against legal sellers on price with the difference being that illegal sellers would not charge tax but would be charging for their implied overhead of selling outside the view of law enforcement. Supply and demand simply do not go away because the govt legalizes pot. Look at moonshine and knock-off goods.

That's part 1. Part 2 will be the market for under 21. In my mind, illegal sellers will SATURATE this market (since they've lost mkt share selling to anyone over 21) making it EASIER for kids to buy pot since they will become their biggest mkt share going fwd. Not only will it be easier but these kids will then become a much bigger focal point by the dealers.

Who writes this crap? Do you expect me to believe they tried to swim away in a pool?

Is it really that hard to believe that someone who is under the influence of enough drugs and alcohol to sneak into a private pool and skinny dip at 5AM would try to hide behind a waterfall? I have no problem believing it. And generally these articles are just copy and pasted right from the police report so the responding officers are likely the ones who "write this crap"

If the deputies that made the arrest had body structures that appear on some deputies in the court rooms ,swimming to the other side of the pool has it's advantage .

The anti-legalization of pot lobby gets a boost from this lack of mental alertness.

It appears some young ladies need protection long after the age of consent.
