BOCA RATON, FL ( — Bringing your own alcohol to a bar in and around Boca Raton is a bad idea. So is hitting a fully uniformed Boca Raton Police Officer.

Daniel Prieto of NW 2nd Avenue in Boca is accused of doing both. He allegedly brought his own alcohol to Blue Martini  which led to Blue Martini staff telling him to leave. When a uniformed Boca Raton Police Officer at Blue Martini told Prieto that he really did need to take off, Prieto allegedly struck that officer with his hand.

Prieto was arrested and charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, trespass after warning as well as obstructing an officer.

And seriously… don’t bring your own alcohol to a bar and don’t hit a cop. Neither will end well for you.
