Texas man charged with indecent exposure at Destin nightclub

DESTIN, Fla. (WKRG) — Okaloosa County sheriff’s deputies arrested 20-year-old Elijah Gants on Monday, Aug. 8, for indecent exposure at the Lucky’s Rotten Apple in Destin.

Staff at the 205 Mountain Drive hot spot told deputies that Gants undressed in the bar and peed on the front door of the building. Staff said Gants whipped his genitals and attempted to fight a bartender and two patrons inside the club.

Another victim told deputies that Gants was there to try to buy drugs. When he was unsuccessful, witnesses said he took a white YETI cooler from the club without permission and walked out.

OCSO deputies showed up at the scene for Gants to walk away with a white cooler. According to the report, Gants threw the cooler and started running away when he saw the patrol car.

Deputies said Gants tried to bite them during the restraint and took him into custody. He is charged with indecent exposure, robbery, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.
