CAPE CORAL, Fla. — A Cape Coral man got violent when he refused to leave Chili’s Restaurant after it closed.

Cape Coral Police received a call from the Chilis on Pine Island Road after Scott Bolton, 36, refused to leave or pay his bill that cost $17.54.

Bolton then tried to sneak out without paying his bill.

An Officer went to place Bolton under arrest; however Bolton began to resist and punched the Officer in the face.

The Officer attempted to use his Taser twice, but it was not effective.

Bolton grabbed the Officer’s Taser in an attempt to take it away from him.

Bolton continued to resist the Officer’s attempt to handcuff him until back up Officers arrived and helped take Bolton into custody.

Bolton made threats to kill Officers when he gets out of jail.
