CALLAWAY — A deputy dispatched to a report of a drunken man making threats arrived to find that the call was extremely accurate.
The deputy reported the man was drunk, making threats to others and would not leave even when asked to do so in front of the deputy.
Instead, the man “continued to try and speak with store staff at which time I lawfully ordered him to leave the store,” the deputy wrote.
But it wasn’t over.
“Upon exiting the store he walked into the busy roadway and began shouting obscenities and raising his middle fingers towards my self and store employees,” the deputy wrote.
That earned the man an arrest for disorderly intoxication.
“Upon placing him under arrest he began stating he was a high ranking gang member and I should let him go,” the deputy wrote. “While in route to the Bay County Jail he again stated he was a high ranking gang member as well as stating he would hire someone to kill me upon being released from jail. He made specific threats to obtain my name from his paper work and hire other gang members to kill me. He further stated he had access to explosives and would ‘blow something up in the United States.’ ”
Remarkably, the deputy notes the drunken man “was turned over to Bay County Jail staff without further incident.”
