OCEAN CITY - Authorities say five Pennsylvania men attacked lifeguards on a South Jersey beach on July Fourth.
Ocean City police went to the beach Tuesday afternoon following reports that several intoxicated people were causing a disturbance. Responding officers found the men assaulting lifeguards, and authorities say the men soon became aggressive with the officers.
Two of the men fled onto a nearby pier, but were soon captured by police and lifeguards. The other three men were arrested on the beach.
Police say four of the men — two from Philadelphia and two from Harrisburg — were charged with aggravated assault, while a Philadelphia man was charged with disorderly conduct. All were released pending court hearings.
