Lowdermilk Beach Park

1301 Gulf Shore Boulevard North, At the end of Banyan Boulevard, Naples, FL

— An East Naples man is accused of attacking a woman with his swim noodle then punching her in the face on the beach at Lowdermilk Park.

Karl Ludwig Eichner, 68, of the 3600 block of Arctic Circle, East Naples, was arrested Thursday by Naples officers at the 1200 block of Gulfshore Boulevard on a battery charge.

According to the arrest report:

A woman who was at the beach with a friend observed a rotting watermelon that had been carved and shaped into a head sitting on the sand. The watermelon seemed to have been abandoned so she placed it in the ocean in hopes that it would disintegrate and not attract any bugs.

Eichner retrieved the watermelon from the ocean and placed it back on the beach.

The woman placed the watermelon in the ocean once again.

Eichner approached the woman with his swim noodle full of water and dumped the water on her as she was sitting on her towel. He then punched her in the cheek.
