Terrain park expert Ryan Neptune has been charged with felony domestic battery. And since the incident took place in front of a minor, added to the list of charges is misdemeanor domestic battery in the presence of a child.

According to the Boise Police Department, officers were dispatched to a home at approximately 12:55 a.m. July 23 to investigate a domestic disturbance in progress. That's where they found a victim, who did not require hospitalization, and Neptune. After an investigation, Neptune was arrested and charged with felony attempted strangulation and misdemeanor domestic battery in the presence of a child.

Neptune is most widely known for his work on skateboard and ski/snowboard terrain parks. He designed courses and parks for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. In all, Neptune's Gateway Parks has helped design and build terrain parks at more than 200 events, built 25 skate parks and worked on terrain at 25 resorts in 10 countries.

In the Boise area, Gateway Parks and Neptune have worked on the controversial Eagle Island State Park, as well as the Eagle Sports Complex

In an unrelated legal issue, the Idaho Industrial Commission has filed two complaints against Neptune in 4th District Court, alleging that Neptune and affiliated companies—Gateway Parks, Eagle Superparks and Neptune Industries—for failing to obtain workers' compensation insurance for employees, the Idaho Statesman reports.

IIC alleges that Neptune's employees have worked without proper workers' compensation insurance since Jan 15, and ignored IIC demands that he provide insurance.

If found liable, Neptune could pay a $25 per day penalty totaling $2,875. Until coverage is obtained, that penalty could continue to increase.

No hearings have been scheduled in either complaint.
