A resident in the area ravaged by the Rockport 5 fire was arrested Wednesday for running through the evacuation barricade set up by Summit County Sheriff deputies.
Due to the fire near Wanship, portions of Promontory Ranch, Rockport Estates and Bridge Hollow have been evacuated and closed.
A press release from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office says that 74-year-old Robert Wiener was arrested after his second attempt to run the barricade.
Wiener first violated the closure Tuesday night, and he was warned he would be arrested if he tried it again.
