Camper used 2-year-old son as human shield

According to court documents, Joshua Don Young, 27, of Chesterton refused to pour out a six-pack of beer on May 3 after U.S. Park Service Rangers Anthony Papesh and Jennifer Jackson caught him with alcohol in the Dunewood Campground in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Young allegedly threw cold campfire ashes into Papesh's eyes and pushed him down a flight of steps, and Jackson struck Young in the leg with her baton. But Young grabbed the baton and struck both her and Papesh in the head, the documents allege.
