According to West Palm Beach police, the incident occurred around 10:00 p.m. at the Jimmy John’s sandwich shop located at 330 Clematis Street in West Palm Beach, Florida.
When police officers arrived at the restaurant, they spoke with the 22-year-old suspect. According to police, the suspect appeared agitated and aggressive. He reportedly complained that the victim had failed to give him a sandwich “that he paid for.”
The police officers determined that the suspect was probably intoxicated at the time.
Police also believe that the suspect punched the victim because of the dispute about the sandwich. The victim reportedly sustained a cut on the bridge of his nose.
The resisting arrest charges stemmed from the suspect allegedly attempting to walk away from the sandwich shop while police officers were investigating the incident. When police told the suspect that he had to remain at the scene, he reportedly responded, “[Expletive] that. Why am I going back?” When the officers tried to handcuff the suspect, he allegedly elbowed and kicked them.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was transported to the Palm Beach County Jail. Sometime later, the suspect secured his release by posting a $6,000 bond.
