Drinking late-kayaking is prohibited in Yellowstone National Park for five years

An Indiana man has been banned from Yellowstone National Park for five years after showing up drinking for a group kayak trip and wreaking havoc when park rangers appeared.

Kyle Campbell, 31, was among a group of visitors who turned their backs on their scheduled June 21 kayak trip to the Grant Marina park because the guide “thought they were too intoxicated,” according to the National Park Service.

NPS said in a press release, the group caused a scene after it was denied and the guide called security officers and law enforcement parks.

Campbell “made threatening comments” to officers and refused orders, the release said.

He also kicked at them during an ongoing struggle and later resisted arrest, NPS said.

Campbell pleaded guilty on June 23 to several charges, including disorderly conduct, threatening and resisting and being under the influence of alcohol and a controlled substance to a degree that could put yourself or others in danger.

He was sentenced to 60 days in prison and banned from the park for five years.

“We understand that people are eager to go outside this summer and enjoy our national parks; however, this kind of behavior is acceptable,” said Acting United States Attorney Bob Murray in a statement.

“Staying moderate, because unruly and intoxicated behavior will only earn you a spot with the jailbirds rather than enjoying the beauty and adventure of Yellowstone.”
