Man Dives Into Outlet to Avoid Arrest


Police say a man dove into the Outlet at Lagoon Park in Canandaigua on Monday in an attempt to avoid being arrested.

Officers were called to the Lakeshore Drive park shortly after noon after it was discovered Tyler Ferrier was allegedly restraining a person who was screaming in distress. When police arrived, Ferrier immediately dove into the water in an attempt to hide. After a perimeter was set up around the park, Ferrier surrendered about an hour later.

The victim, who had an active order of protection against Ferrier, was not injured.

Ferrier was charged with two counts of criminal contempt. One count was for Monday’s incident and the other was for an incident on July 24th when he subjected the same person to physical contact in violation of the order of protection.

The 52-year-old was taken to Ontario County Jail to await arraignment.  Additional charges are pending.
