The man is a 32-year-old from Fort Walton Beach, Florida whose name wasn't released.  Back on March 26th, he was drunk and went to a nightclub called Swamp.  Police were called after he started making a disturbance.

The cops told him to leave the club, but he said he wouldn't go unless the club gave back two things of his that they'd confiscated.

One was a bull whip and the other was the CAP to a dry-erase marker. Not the marker itself. Just the cap. Yeah, I can't figure it out either.

The club gave him back the whip, but said they couldn't find the cap to his marker.  And that's when he FREAKED OUT.

He told the cops he was a sniper with the Marines and he'd kill them. He refused to leave the club, so they handcuffed him and put him in the back of a police van, where he started kicking the windows.

They took him out of the van to shackle his legs and he responded by running HEADFIRST into the side of the van, repeatedly.

They finally subdued him, and he's been charged with trespassing, criminal mischief property damage, and resisting an officer. All over the cap to a dry-erase marker…not even the marker itself.
