— A Tallahassee man involved in a bar fight is accused of threatening to kill a Collier County deputy who arrested him, according to an arrest report.

Around 1:45 a.m., deputies were called to Pelican Larry’s bar, 1046 Pine Ridge Road, where Brett Michael Morad, 24, hit a security officer after being kicked out, a report said. A security guard still had Morad pinned down in the parking lot when deputies arrived.

After the deputy handcuffed Morad and began to take him into his truck, Morad tried to pull away and threatened to shoot the deputy and put him in a coma, according to the report. Morad spit on the windows and had to be pulled inside the truck, according to deputies.

Once inside the truck, Morad began spitting and kicking and banging the sides of the vehicle, a report said. As a deputy drove Morad to jail, the 24-year-old continued to threaten him saying he would “whoop your ass,” “put you in a coma” and “put you to sleep,” according to a report.

Morad also said he was find out where the officer lived, hunt him down and murder him, a report said.

Morad also said he had an “awesome” attorney who would be able to get his charges dismissed, a report said.
