      Presque Isle rescue lands three men a misdemeanor

      Three men are out of the Marquette County Jail but stand charged with disorderly conduct while intoxicated. The trio was arrested Saturday after being rescued from the Presque Isle breakwater.

      Their names and hometowns are not being released by police at this time. According to an official with the Coast Guard station Marquette, three males were on the breakwater. They allegedly trespassed the breakwater's locked gate and walked out onto the rocks. The Coast Guard rescued them with their 45-foot boat and a small ice rescue boat. Waves were four to five feet high, making it tough to get the bigger boat close to the rocks. Once the three were safe on-board the bigger Coast Guard boat, they were taken to shore, where Marquette Police were waiting. They were arrested, charged with the misdemeanor and put in jail. If found guilty, they could get 90 days in jail and/or a fine.
