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.
