An arrest has resulted from a two-month-old case involving a fight at a popular downtown Columbus attraction for children.
Eric Scott Bail, 22, was arrested Friday on charges of battery with physical harm, recklessly causing harm, endangering safety and disorderly conduct, according to a Columbus Police Department report. He was released Saturday from the Muscogee County jail.
On June 15, around 4:55 p.m., CPD Cpl. Walter Haywood was dispatched to the Spash Pad at 1000 Bay Ave., in reference to a fight, the report says. Two victims are listed — both females — but their injuries aren’t mentioned.
The case remains under investigation.
