Punch Drunk

12:12 a.m. — first block of Old Kings Road, Palm Coast

Disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer.  A Palm Coast woman was arrested when her night out ended with her punching a Sheriff's Office deputy.

The Sheriff's Office were called to the local bowling alley when two women were seen grappling with each, according to the woman's arrest report. One of the women told deputies that there had not been a fight, she was just taking her intoxicated friend — the suspect — to the bathroom.

When they were on their way out, the suspect left her friend's side and tried to punch a man she knew. Her friend and the deputy tried to pull the woman off the man and the woman punched the deputy when he tried to restrain her, the report said. 

She was then placed under arrest and later taken to the county jail.

The man told deputies the woman was mad at him for giving her friend a ride on his motorcycle, the report said.

5 o'clock somewhere

4:26 p.m. — 100 block of Cypress Point Parkway, Palm Coast

Disorderly intoxication. A Sheriff's Office deputy was called out to two disorderly conduct calls featuring the same man in less than an hour.

The deputy was first called to a major department supermarket for a man that employees said was running around the store yelling, according to the man's arrest report. The man smelled of alcohol and told the deputy he would "probably blow a .2."

The deputy trespassed the man from the store and escorted him off the premises. The man then stood at the edge of the parking lot and "screamed unintelligibly" for five minutes before leaving to a nearby gas station.

The same deputy was called to that gas station less than 30 minutes later because the same man was "yelling and screaming and throwing rocks at vehicles," the arrest report said. 

The deputy arrested the man for disorderly conduct.
