MICCO, Florida – A man walks into the Winn-Dixie liquor store at 7960 U.S. Highway 1 in Barefoot Bay and begins smashing bottles, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Seth Dennis Johnson, 39, was arrested on charges of Trespassing, Disorderly Intoxication, Criminal Mischief, and Assault.

The incident happened on Saturday night at approximately 7:00 p.m. when Johnson entered the store and smashed a bottle of bourbon on the floor, the report said.

“The store clerk asked what he was doing, Mr. Johnson then broke a bottle of alcohol every time he uttered a word,” the deputy said.

The store clerk asked Johnson to leave, but he remained in the store and continued to smash bottles and shout at employees.

Another clerk arrived and told him to leave, but Johnson attempted to punch the employee.

The clerk was able to dodge the attempt from feared that Johnson was going to attempt to do more harm to him.

The two Winn-Dixie employees restrained Johnson until deputies could arrive on the scene.

“Mr. Johnson was not able to be understood, his speech was slurred, and he smelled of alcohol,” according to the report.

Law enforcement said Johnson was uncooperative, agitated, and unwilling to stop fighting with the employees until deputies arrived.

Johnson was arrested and transported to the Brevard County Jail.
