NOKOMIS, Fla. (WWSB) - A man is behind bars after officials say he yelled racial slurs and attacked a waitress at a Nokomis restaurant.
Deputies say on Friday they responded to a disturbance at Pop’s Sunset Grill. When they arrived, deputies say there was a large group of people standing around a small group of people that were holding Nicholas Schock, 36, down.
According to deputies, Schock entered the business screaming and using profanity and dressed down to no shirt and his pants were undone and exposing parts of his groin area.
Deputies say a waitress tried to prevent him from entering the restaurant, but he became even more disruptive and this caused other employees to have to assist with attempting to remove him from business.
According to deputies, as the situation continued to unfold, Schock approached the waitress and struck her twice, causing her to lose consciousness. Patrons held Shock down until law enforcement arrived.
According to LEOs, one of the other employees said that when he approached Schock about his behavior prior to striking the waitress, Schock said that he was “going to kill everyone in the establishment” and shouted comments about the Aryan brotherhood and white supremacy.
Deputies recovered video footage of Schock hitting the waitress twice and while they were on scene they were told that he also made comments about having a gun, but no weapon was recovered.
Deputies placed Schock under arrest and he continued to yell as he was placed in the back seat of the patrol car.
He is charged with Battery, Disturbing the Peace, and an additional count of Indecent Exposure.
As of Wednesday, he is being held in the Sarasota County Correctional Facility on a bond of $105,000.
