VERO BEACH – A Wendy’s restaurant on 20th Street in Vero Beach called the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office about a man sitting on the floor and yelling obscenities at employees, according to the report.

Anton Elliott, 61, was seen running through the Wendy’s parking lot and into the woods as deputies arrived at the Vero Beach fast-food eatery.

The restauarnt manager told deputies that Elliott entered the restaurant and started a disturbance. He was sitting on the floor and “began to yell obscenities at employees, causing fear to the employees and patrons,” the report said.

Elliott has already been issued a trespass warning, advising him not return to the restaurant.

Deputies went into the woods where they saw Elliott running. After a brief search, they located him in the woods, west of Vero Beach Inn & Suites.

A strong odor of alcohol was emitting from Elliott, who had slow movements, and his speech was slurred and hard to understand.

Elliott told deputies he had been drinking and went to the restaurant for a burger. He admitted to yelling at employees because he was upset.

When deputies placed Elliott under arrest, he started yelling obscenities in the parking lot.

“Fu** you, you punk a**! Fu** Judge Morgan. He can s*** my d***, that p**** a** mother fu****. Punk a** cracker.”

Elliott was transported to the Indian River County Jail where he was charged with trespassing and disorderly intoxication.
