A man's inability to keep his lips shut or to himself ended poorly recently.
The Bay County Sheriff's Office received a call that there was a woman screaming for help and it involved a specific type of vehicle. A deputy found a car like that driving in that area and pulled it over.
"I spoke with the driver who stated he, his wife and some friends were all at a nightclub drinking and having a good time," the deputy wrote. "He stated that his wife caught him and her best friend kissing and it upset her, she then demanded that they leave immediately. As they drove home, they began arguing and she fled the vehicle on foot around Walnut and Sunset crying and screaming."
The crying, however, has only just begun.
The deputy wrote that while talking to the husband, the husband began to cry and yell. "I told him to calm down and relax multiple times trying to convince him to stop crying and acting disorderly," the deputy wrote.
The man agrees to take a roadside sobriety test and admitted to drinking, but the deputy said he did not appear intoxicated, so he advised him to call a friend to come pick him up.
The husband responded with profanity and other disorderly conduct, the deputy wrote. "Each time I advised him to stop, and told him he would be charged with disorderly conduct if he did not."
"Finally he was able to make contact with someone to come get him, however he began yelling and cursing so loud that the residents in the immediate area began investigating the cause of the noise and disturbance," the deputy continued. "At that point I was left with no other options but to arrest him."
The deputy advised the man to get on out of his car and place his hands behind his back, but the man "advised me he would not and placed his hand out as if to slap or push my hand away," the deputy wrote.
The deputy, relying on training, "redirected" the man "into the prone handcuffing position," according to the report.
The man is charged with disorderly conduct and resisting without violence.
