Art, the owner arrived at a launch site yelling obscenities in front of children, grabbed a kayak from my group (we had rented elsewhere), picked it up and threw it. Grabbed the ore and threw that, hitting a women in my group, and proceeded to then grab a cooler to throw that before he was stopped. Police need to be called, and from what I'm told this isn't an uncommon thing with him. Wouldn't recommend dealing with him or his company because of his violent display to which we are still unsure as to what if anything actually lead to his outburst.

Our guide from the company we rented kayaks from did. At the time, however, she was not aware that he had thrown the ore that hit someone or I'm sure that he would have been placed in custody. Unfortunately none of us right there had phones since we where about to kayak. Apparently the outburst began in the parking lot up from the launch site which is why she called and just reported his actions. I was told that this situation isn't uncommon with him though.

If someone threw an oar at me and hit me I'd be pressing charges.
If the women got hit with the oar she must have been hurt or at least bruised. I'm sure the group would have waited while she went to the nearest phone. So why didn't she report it?
This makes no sense.
You stated that "Apparently the outburst began in the parking lot ".
Apparently? Weren't you there?
