DESTIN – An intoxicated patron of an establishment on Destin Harbor was arrested after berating deputies called to manage his behavior.

The 28-year-old Fort Walton Beach man called the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies racial slurs and threatened to sue them, according to his arrest report.

He also cursed at them and tried to get them to fight with him.

He was told numerous times that he was free to leave.

When he finally left, he “began another round of cursing and vulgar comments,” which were loud enough to be heard by patrons, one of whom completed a statement.

He was charged with disorderly intoxication.
