Man Sentenced For Assaulting Ranger

American Memorial Park

National Park News

Prisco Ongrung was sentenced to 90 days in jail and a year’s supervised release earlier this week for assaulting a ranger at the Outer Cove Marina last September. On September 12th, Ongrung struck Sam Martinsen in the head, causing injury, when Martinen attempted to cite him for speeding. Martinsen was on patrol in the marina when he saw a pickup driven by Ongrung, who he’d warned several times in the past for driving without a license. This time, Ongrung was speeding, so Martinsen pulled him over. The assault followed. Ongrung was arrested and charged with assault on a federal officer with bodily injury. He subsequently pled guilty to a lesser offense of assault on a federal officer as part of a plea agreement. Among the conditions of his supervised release will be that Ongrung will have to advise American Memorial Park personnel any time he intends to enter the park during the duration of Martinsen’s tour of duty.
