For Bay County police officers, spring break is deer season.
Panama City is the hub for debauchery on spring break and apparently the destination for deer on vacation.
Generally, cops on the panhandle are very lenient on party-goers, and aren’t inclined to arrest people on a whim. Only those that are incapable of stumbling back to their rental housing or idiot drunks who think wearing a deer costume on the beach is funny are hauled off to the slammer. Case in point above.
It is unclear why this dude was arrested, but the zebra-print board shorts may have been the cause.
Rule of thumb for youngins’ at the beach: Don’t piss of the overworked, underpaid cops in Panama City. You’ll find yourself making a collect call to your folks, pleading for bail money and trying to explain what the hell you were thinking getting arrested wearing a deer costume.
Price of costume: $29.99 plus shipping
Price of bail: $500
Price of getting arrested wearing deer costume: Painfully priceless
