BOWERS BEACH, Del. (AP) - Natural Resources Police have arrested a man they say tried to evade boarding and steered his boat into the path of a patrol vessel.

Authorities say on July 24, 61-year-old Kenneth W. Bailey of Heislerville, New Jersey, the captain of the commercial vessel, put the craft in gear as police approached to do a fisheries compliance boarding on Delaware Bay.

Officers also say Bailey’s crew dumped several bushel baskets of conch into the bay, despite a police command to stop.

Bailey was charged with reckless endangering and 103 counts of possession of undersized knobbed conch.
