Pooping malt liquor drinker jailed in Vero Beach gunfire brouhaha An Indian River County sheriff's deputy about 9:20 p.m. April 9 went to the Gifford Docks in Vero Beach after a report of shots fired. He found Michael Johnston, 44, who said he'd had eight drinks, including two cans of Colt 45, which he said was "too many apparently!" Another man was with him. […] Johnston said both men fired weapons on the dock, and that he'd been "drinking and shooting." About 20 shots were fired, he said. The deputy saw bullet holes and other gunfire damage on the dock area. Johnston said the damage came from him shooting at a glass bottle, saying, "the dock (feces) was my (feces)!" Johnston was swaying as the deputy spoke to him and defecated in his trousers, the affidavit states. [TCPalm]
