DESTIN — A drunk man repeatedly threatened a deputy’s life after his arrest for disorderly intoxication at a popular tourist spot, lawmen say.
According to an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, HarborWalk Village security called deputies when the drunk man wouldn’t leave the property. When a deputy approached the man and told him to get his things and leave, the man responded, “(Expletive) you, I’m not leaving!”
He then squared up with the deputy and yelled more expletives at the deputy after he requested identification, telling him he would “whoop your (expletive).”
The deputy tried to detain him in handcuffs, but the man stiffened his arm and pulled away from the deputy. The man told him to take the handcuffs off so he could “kick your (expletive).”
He then told the deputy, “I am going to kill you,” “You’re a dead man” and “I’m going to get a gun and put it to your head,” according to his arrest report.
The man reeked of alcohol and admitted to drinking earlier in the night, the deputy wrote in his report.
The 62-year-old Fort Walton Beach man was charged with crimes against a public servant, resisting an officer and disorderly intoxication.
