POLK COUNTY , Fla., July 14 (UPI) -- Police arrested a man who told them his name was "Pterodactyl" after an alleged incident at Legoland Florida.

Polk County sheriff's deputies were called to the the Legoland Florida water park after Richard Campagna allegedly refused to leave the attraction and "appeared drunk."

Campagna was asked to leave the park, but instead ran into the park's lazy river while it was "occupied by a large number of children."

Deputies attempted to use a Taser on Campagna, but it was unsuccessful. It ultimately took multiple Legoland employees and deputies to get the 36-year-old under control.

"He was unruly," Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carrie Horstman told the Ledger.

Campagna was charged with felony battery on a law enforcement officer after he allegedly splashed water on a deputy. He was also hit with charges of disorderly conduct and resisting officers without violence.

Daily operations at Legoland Florida were undisturbed by the incident according to a spokeswoman.
