SUMMERFIELD — A 33-year-old Summerfield man apparently threatened to beat up a gas station manager and, when arrested by sheriff’s deputies, cursed, spat and kicked out the windows from inside a squad car.

Michael Lynn Raley was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting with violence, according to officials.

At 8:23 p.m. Friday, deputies went to the BP gas station at the corner of County Road 42 and South U.S. 441, where they said they saw Raley standing in front of the business screaming at people.

Asked for his identification, Raley told them he didn’t have any with him, but told deputies his name, authorities said. Wearing only blue jeans, Raley had scratches on his face and arms and grass on his back and in his hair, deputies said.

Deputies also said they detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from him.

Deputies said Raley told them he did something stupid and they needed to take him to jail. Officials wanted to know how he got the scratches, and he told them to shut up and mind their own business, the report noted. Told he needed to leave, Raley refused, and cursed at deputies, they said.

Deputies then arrested Raley, and he resisted their attempts at putting him into the vehicle, they said. Once inside the squad car, Raley kicked the windows, deputies added.

Deputies said they then bound Raley’s legs and took him to the Marion County Jail. During the ride, he spat in the patrol car, deputies said.
