STANFORD — A Stanford man was arrested Friday at Cedar Creek Lake on multiple charges related to leaving minor children alone there, including a 4-year-old who witnesses say had to be rescued from nearly drowning.
Eric D. Jarboe, 44, was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. He also had warrants for nonpayment of fines and alcohol intoxication.
A group swimming at the popular beach off U.S. 150 east of Stanford called Lincoln County Sheriff Curt Folger to report an obviously intoxicated man had left kids there.
“They stated there was a guy who left without the kids and the little one about drowned,” he said. “One of the women’s daughters saved him.”
