Arresting performance

9:21 p.m. — 100 block of Palm Harbor Parkway, Palm Cost

Battery, disorderly conduct. A Colorado man renting out an Air BnB above a shopping plaza was arrested for allegedly blasting music and throwing beer cans and cigarette butts at people passing below his balcony.

The suspect had set up his DJ music equipment on the balcony and blasted music to the business patrons below, according to his arrest report. When business owners complained to the suspect about the noise, he threw cups of liquid and cigarette butts at them, the report said.

 Deputies responded to complaints about the suspect at 3:33 p.m., but, despite warnings, he continued to DJ for the next six hours. The apartment owner canceled the rental contract and shut down the apartment’s power. When the man left the apartment, yelling and screaming, deputies arrested him.

Down the drain

5:51 p.m. — first block of Old Kings Road, Palm Coast

Tampering with evidence, possession of drug paraphernalia. A Palm Coast man was arrested after he tried to dump evidence of drug possession down a fast-food restaurant’s toilet. 

The man was in a Chevrolet Tahoe that caught the eye of Sheriff’s Office deputies because it was blocking the entrance to a gas station, according to his arrest report. Deputies followed the Tahoe as it left the gas station and pulled into a fast food restaurant on Old Kings Road. 

There, the Tahoe parked in the restaurant’s drive-thru line, blocking other cars while the man got out of the truck and went inside to the restroom, the report said. 

When a plainclothes deputy went into the restroom after the suspect, he found a rolled-up foil wrapper with heroin on it in the toilet and a plastic bag with drug residue in the trash.

The deputies stopped the Tahoe — still parked in the drive-thru — and confronted the man, who admitted to dumping the items.
