On August 4, 2018, the Camden County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Allen Loftis with three felony counts of assault motivated by discrimination. It is alleged that Loftis punched three people at a local bar because Loftis believed the victims were homosexual- at least one person was injured as a result of Loftis’s actions. Loftis was quoted by the arresting officer as saying that he, “does not let gay stuff go on.”

While the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney cannot comment on an open case, PA Heather Miller stated, “My office continues to work with law enforcement, local businesses, and all citizens to make sure that the Lake is a place we are proud to call home. It is vital to our success as a community that we are able to go about our lives without fear of assault or of harassment. The Office of the Prosecuting Attorney remains committed to the safety of those that live in Camden County and those who visit our beautiful lake.”
