3380 Mercantile Ave., Naples, FL
Collier County sheriff's deputies arrested a 33-year-old man early Sunday after they say he attacked a bouncer who asked him to leave the Captain's Cabin bar.
Joshua Robert Briggs, of the 1700 block of 55th Terrace Southwest, Golden Gate, is facing charges of battery and disorderly intoxication.
Around 2 a.m., Briggs was sitting at the bar when Captain's Cabin security asked him several times to leave, according to an arrest report. Briggs said the bouncer would have to carry him out to get him to leave, according to witnesses.
When the bouncer placed his hand on Briggs' shoulder in an effort to escort him out, Briggs shoved him, charged at him and knocked him to the ground. Another bar employee joined the fracas, and he and the bouncer were eventually able to restrain Briggs until deputies arrived.
Brigg's speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot and he appeared intoxicated, deputies said. While being booked into the Naples Jail Center, Briggs told deputies he knows several prominent local attorneys and the at he'd "be out of here in an hour and a half."
He was still in custody Monday afternoon.
