Assault with a golf marker. Whew.
Stephan Kidder

Deputies said Stephan Kidder, 36, of Chateau Sinnet Winery, was found trespassing and interfering with a business about 5:30 p.m. on the 100 block of East Carmel Valley Road. When asked to leave, deputies said, Kidder threatened employees with the marker.

Deputies said that when they arrived, he ran into the Carmel River. Deputies were able to talk Kidder out of the river, and he was booked into the Monterey County Jail on suspicion of exhibiting a deadly weapon, public intoxication and trespassing. Jail officials said Kidder also had a warrant for driving with a suspended license, without vehicle insurance and registration.
