Man In Hotel Pool Claims To Be 'Spec Ops'

KEY LARGO, Fla., (UPI) —  Police in Florida said they arrested a Utah man who refused to leave a hotel pool while swimming fully clothed and claimed to be a special forces soldier.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy responded Sunday to the Marriott Key Largo Bay Resort and found Jason Youngblood, 30, fully clothed in the pool with security staff attempting to get him to leave the water, reported Tuesday.

The deputy said Youngblood responded to every question with “yeah,” including an inquiry about where he is from, and eventually got out of the pool.

The deputy wrote Youngblood eventually got out of the pool and was acting erratically and unstable. The deputy attempted to escort Youngblood to his room, but he fought with the deputy and the pair struggled.

The sheriff’s office said Youngblood’s sister told the deputy he was a “federal agent” and Youngblood claimed to be “spec ops” while he was being arrested.

Youngblood, whose “occupation” was left blank on the arrest report, was charged with battery, assault and resisting arrest charges. He was ordered held in lieu of $8,000 bond.
