Deputies arrested a man in Florida who lit his Burger King uniform on fire after being fired.
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office responded Wednesday around 5 p.m. to a Palencia Burger King after witnesses saw the confrontation.
Deputies said after Timothy Ortiz, 24, was fired, he walked outside and lit his uniform shirt and hat on fire and left it burning on the sidewalk, which was 3 feet from the gas line to the restaurant.
Ortiz got into an argument with patrons from the restaurant, who tried to stop him from leaving, according to SJSO.
Deputies later found Ortiz at his home. SJSO said the he started yelling and cussing at the deputy who tried to talk to him about the incident at the Burger King.
Ortiz got agitated and aggressive with the deputy, who then called for backup, according to SJSO. The deputy used the Taser when he turned away and attempted to run, SJSO said.
Ortiz was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting an officer without violence, and damage to property under $200.
