Naples, FL (February 23, 2019) - A 30-year-old man from Naples was arrested after police say he attempted to break into a pizza restaurant and then later threatened deputies as they apprehended him.
Joseph March went to the Little Caesars at 4780 Golden Gate Parkway on Friday, February 22nd. March was seen punching and kicking at the glass door at the entrance to the building; however, he was unable to make entry. A Collier County Sheriff's Deputy arrived on scene and saw March walking away from the store. March cursed at the deputy, becoming aggressive and informing the officer that he was not on psychedelic drugs.
The deputy pointed his taser at March and ordered him to the ground. March, however, did not comply and pulled down his shorts, exposing himself to police. March then threatened to kill two officers at the scene. Eventually, he was arrested and taken to jail.
