Texan man, Austin Ragans has had his ass hauled in after the medical device business man was seen throwing a chair and beer bottles from his 16th story hotel room balcony at the W hotel in Ft Lauderdale on Tuesday.
When cops responded to the fracas, they found our collective hero naked, with a bag of the good shit nearby. At the time Austin Ragans had been asked to leave the hotel premises after hotel guests noted beer bottles were sent hurling at them.
Incensed the traveling businessman also threw a chair (why decline?) over the edge – which ended up hitting hotel worker Rodney Moore, who was walking on the driveway below at the time.
Moore was taken to a nearby hospital, but police said his injuries were not serious.
Hotel staff visited Ragans’ room following the incident and allegedly found him completely naked.
The room’s chair was missing and there was glass on the bathroom floor. A bag of the good shit, which later tested positive for cocaine, was allegedly in plain view on a counter.
Police arrived and Ragans was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery, possession of cocaine and criminal mischief.
Appearing before Judge John Hurley on Wednesday, the judge said it was ‘fortunate‘ (maybe next time?) that Moore’s neck had not been broken and that he wasn’t here on a manslaughter charge.
Ragans, who owns a medical device distributing company and said he was in Fort Lauderdale on business, was released on $28,600 bond.
Previous arrests have also been noted in Florida, Texas and Arizona….
