Man Arrested for Throwing Glass at Florida Keys Bar Manager

A man was arrested in Islamorada after allegedly throwing a glass at an employee.

Officials said James Brooks, 54, went to the bar to discuss a credit card he left behind several nights before. Brooks then ordered several drinks.

Police said he then became upset with the bartender over a discussion about the lost or missing credit card.

When the manager arrived to help resolve the matter, Brooks allegedly threw a glass cup containing an alcoholic beverage at his face, causing minor injuries.

Brooks claimed the drink toss was in self-defense. But when police reviewed security footage of the incident, they arrested him and took him to jail.
