Eric Borneman Arrested

By Shane Graber - Posted May 01, 2011 08:00 AM just reported that long time saltwater aquarium author Eric Hugo Borneman was arrested on Wednesday, April 27th for multiple counts including burglary of a habitation and criminal trespass.

For all of you in the hobby, you are no stranger to Eric and his many contributions. These include books, speaking engagements at events such as MACNA, forum participation, and coral research - in addition to writing for Advanced Aquarist in years past.

This information came as a complete surprise to me when I first learned of it tonight on,  corroborated with a report in the Houston Chronicle.

According to the police report, on Wednesday, April 27th at 10 AM police were called to a local residence in Sugar Land, Texas after someone called in a suspicious person report to the Sugar Land police department. Upon arrival at the residence, police found Eric swimming in the pool and when they tried to question and eventually arrest him, he ran. After searching, police eventually found him hiding in a nearby house.

The Houston Chronicle states that he was "being booked on multiple charges, including burglary of a habitation, criminal trespass, evading arrest, resisting arrest, failure to provide identification, and two counts of criminal mischief."
