BASS PRO SHOP DIVER GOING UP THE RIVER
Daniel Armendariz (DOB 08-17-1992), known best for his plunge into the Bass Pro Shops fish tank at Gulf Coast Town Center, has been arrested, once again, by the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
A call for service was received stating that Armendariz was on his way to the Days Inn on South Cleveland Avenue having threatened to shoot the caller.
Deputies arrived to find Armendariz exit a vehicle found to contain a pump-action shotgun and over 200 rounds of ammunition.
Despite numerous, loud verbal commands from multiple deputies asking Armendariz to exit the vehicle, the suspect refused. Armendariz was subsequently removed from the vehicle.
Attempts to cuff the suspect were met with resistance and, when finally detained, began banging his head and feet against the doors of the patrol vehicle.
Armendariz is currently in LCSO custody charged with two counts of Resisting Officer without Violence.
