RUNNING SPRINGS, Calif. (TCD) -- A 42-year-old father was arrested after he allegedly "lied his way" into a secure area and attempted to drown his young daughter.
According to a statement, on Tuesday, Oct. 25, deputies from the Twin Speaks Station of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department were called to Pali Mountain Camp in Running Springs for report of a drowning. Deputies learned Timothy Shipman allegedly got into the camp and attempted to drown his 2-year-old daughter in a pond.
