A 53-year-old man is behind bars on a $100,000 bond after he fired gunshots at police and other vessels from his anchored sailboat in the Indian River Lagoon in Sebastian, Florida.

The incident happened last Friday at approximately 8:30 p.m. when the Sebastian Police Department received calls about someone in a boat shooting a gun.

Officers spoke with witnesses on the docks at the Captian Hirams Resort and Squid Lips Overwater Grill; they stated that a man fired his gun from his vessel.

The man, identified as Derrick Johnston, yelled at another boat for having its lights on with a running generator. When the witness yelled back at Johnston, he observed him with a handgun, followed by three gunshots, the affidavit said.

The witness “knew this to be a firearm due to the muzzle flash observed following each round as it was shot,” the officer said.
He certainly looks the part.

I wonder if that right eye is a self inflicted wound.

to hell with the deadbeat, i want to hear about the grill ... there's a story there somewhere..

It's a small chain down here. The one in Sebastain is kinda an overwater dive, the ones in Melbourne and Cocoa are pretty nice. Watched a Summer Friday night's Atlas 5 launch from their Cocoa restaurant's deck through the lens of a couple of G'n'Ts. Good times.

However, as for any Floriduh Man forming a relationship with a cephalopod, the staff was silent.
