Florida Man Gets Drunk On Moonshine, Turns Up The Radio, and Gets Tased

Deputies say a Marion County man enjoyed his music and his moonshine a little too much Sunday, landing him behind bars.

Authorities arrived at a home in Marion County before dawn as they investigated an anonymous noise complaint. Body camera video shows deputies found a 51-year-old shirtless man with a cowboy hat and wearing camo shorts standing in front of a home with music blasting.

“How you doing? Hey, can you turn the radio down?" a deputy is heard asking the man. The man, identified as Rick Lee Miller, proceeds to yell expletives and threatens to kill the deputy from the road, according to the video.

“Do me a favor, we just want you to turn the radio down, that’s it,” the deputy tried to reason. “If you do that I’m out of here.”

However, being the party animal he is, Rick wasn't having it. He threatened to shoot the officer, became combative with deputies, and was eventually tased.

Once restrained, deputies fond a firearm and a knife on him. Miller is now facing a string of charges including the use of a firearm under the influence of alcohol and breach of peace.

“Next time, we recommend taking the party inside and turning the music down,” the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.
