Florida Man Breaks Into Zoo, Assaults Employees, Patrons, And Deputies

A Florida man was smacked with 13 charges after busting into a Florida Zoo and assaulting people inside.

On Tuesday, the Bay County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call at Zoo World on Front Beach Road on Panama City Beach.

Employees stated there was a man acting erratically at the zoo. Deputies say the man had already assaulted two patrons and three employees, and the employees were keeping other patrons away from him while waiting for deputies.

Inside Zoo World was a man that was identified as Michael Jerome Brown. Brown was screaming threats to anyone around him.

The employees of Zoo World stated Brown had broken into the facility and assaulted two patrons before employees went to him.

Brown then assaulted three employees, who retreated from him and concentrated on keeping any patrons away from him, including a bus load of children at the zoo.

Note: Brown did not injure any animals or attempt to enter any animal enclosures.

Deputies engaged Brown and he fought two of the deputies, threatening to hurt others as well as making unintelligible sounds.

“Brown’s actions were aggressive and unpredictable, and deputies felt the employees at Zoo World did a remarkable job keeping other patrons safe until deputies arrived,” said BCSO.

Michael Jerome Brown was placed into handcuffs by deputies and taken to a local medical facility for medical evaluation, and booked into the Bay County Jail.

Brown was charged with five counts of Battery, two counts of Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, two counts of Resisting with Violence, Resisting Without Violence, Disorderly Conduct, and Trespass After Warning.
