Michael David Atkinson, 35, of Breeze Street in Gulf Breeze, was arrested June 26 on a first-degree misdemeanor charge of indecent exposure, a third-degree felony charge of resisting an officer with violence and a second-degree misdemeanor charge of disorderly intoxication after deputies received a complaint about a naked man at Quality Inn and Suites in Gulf Breeze.
Police observed Atkinson urinating on the rear deck of the hotel, according to the report, which also stated he was naked and “obviously intoxicated.”
The officer told Atkinson to walk toward him, but he jumped over the balcony and attempted to flee on foot. The officer chased the suspect, who resisted by “violently pulling away,” according to the report. The deputy took down the subject, and he was transported to Santa Rosa County Jail and issued a $6,500 bond.
