    By Tony Kurzweil,


    Ventura police arrested a man on Monday they say swung a golf club at a group of teens celebrating on the beach and then fired a gun into the air.

    The incident was reported in the area of Pierpont Beach near the end of Norwich Lane just before 8:30 p.m.

    “The callers reported a man, later identified as Robert Felix, had fired a handgun in the air near a large group of people,” the Ventura Police Department stated in a news release.

    Arriving officers learned that the group consisted of teenagers believed to be celebrating their upcoming high school graduation on the beach.

    Felix, a 43-year-old Ventura resident who lives nearby, was upset by the partying and approached the group while swinging a golf club, police said.
