A Texas park ranger who was telling a crowd at Lake Austin to "disperse" and remain six feet apart was pushed into the water by one of the revelers.

The incident was caught on video:

As he was explaining social distancing guidelines to the crowd, a man ran up and pushed him into the lake. The park ranger was able to grab onto the man's arm and bring him into the water with him. The man then climbed out of the water and fled.

The suspect, Brandon Hicks, 25, has been apprehended, and faces a charge of attempted assault on a public servant.
