(Kona, HI) -- A Hawaii man is facing charges in connection with a scuba diving incident that could've ended much worse than it did. KHON 2 TV reports the underwater altercation was caught on tape when it happened in May off the coast of the Big Island. An activist who is against taking reef fish for the aquarium trade says she was taking video of an aquarium collector when he saw her. The woman claims he hit her on the nose and ripped off her breathing device while they were 50 feet underwater. Jay Lovell was charged with terroristic threatening. He's set to appear in court in September.
