A popular DeLand-area nightspot and music venue was rocking on Tuesday night, Sept. 20, when a very intoxicated gentleman wearing a white shirt and dreadlocks got into a fight with other audience members and with security guards.

The Plastered Patron “was yelling at the security guards and was trying to force his way back into the bar.”

When a police officer questioned him, Plastered Patron said he was having a quarrel with a female patron “and during the argument the security guards attacked him.”

The officer said the man was “combative, had slurred speech, and smelt of alcohol.”

Plastered Patron’s “friends kept trying to remove him from the situation but he pulled his arm away from them and tried to reenter the bar.”

He tried to get back into the club, and a security guard strove to prevent him from going in. Plastered Patron responded by shoving the guard backward.

The security guard told police that Plastered Patron “was getting on the stage attempting to dance with the performers.” Guard told Plastered “that he couldn’t do that” and “that he needed to leave.”

Plastered “became upset attempting to start arguments and fights with other subjects in the bar area.”

Guard managed to get Plastered Patron outside, but the guy “became even more upset causing even more arguments and fights with several subjects outside.”

Police officers “told [Plastered Patron] several times to leave with his friends.” (So the lawmen were bending over backward to be wouldn’t take their hint that he needed to go.) nice to this drunk, and he just

Plastered Patron walked to a friend’s car but refused to get inside. He kept screaming at his own friends and at the police, “then charged at his friends while yelling at them to leave without him.”

No surprise: The officers arrested Plastered Patron on a charge of disorderly intoxication and took him to jail. I wonder if, the next day, he remembered how good/bad a time he had the night before.
