Knife wielding man arrested for assault on nightclub security www.privateofficer.com
FORT WALTON BEACH FLA MAY 4 2011 — A man fought to allow his brother to stay in the El Rancho Alegre nightclub before he was arrested for aggravated assault and simple battery.
According to his arrest report from the Fort Walton Beach Police Department, Neptali Alexander Guerrero-Maradiaga, 26, threatened the club’s bouncer with a knife.
The incident happened on April 17 at around 1 a.m.
The club’s security guard said he and another security guard escorted an intoxicated man from the club because he was causing problems.
Guerrero-Maradiaga approached the guards and said he was the man’s brother and objected to them throwing his brother out of the club.
During the argument that followed, Guerrero-Maradiaga pulled out a one-inch silver lock blade knife and “began to move towards him holding the knife in an aggressive manner above his head,” the report said.
In self defense, the guard punched Guerrero-Maradiaga in the face and bit the guard.
When police officers arrived, Guerrero-Maradiaga still had the knife. Once again, he held the knife above his head and was ready to attack the officers.
The officers pulled their service weapons and ordered Guerrero-Maradiaga to put down the knife several times.
