A 31-year-old Fort Walton Beach man was arrested after he refused to cooperate with Fort Walton Beach police Monday.

An officer responded to a call about a disturbance between a man and a woman at the Tom Thumb in the 100 block of Beal Parkway.

The officer found Tyler Lee Bradshaw and his mother inside of a silver SUV in the parking lot.

While officers spoke with the woman, who was in the driver's seat, another officer introduced himself to Bradshaw and asked for his identification.

Bradshaw reportedly told the officer he didn't have an ID and that he "committed no crimes."

"I again explained to the defendant I am investigating a possible disturbance in which he is detained, between he and the female subject," the officer wrote in a report.

Bradshaw reportedly refused to cooperate again. His mother told police his name and Bradshaw told her to stop speaking.

The officer asked Bradshaw's birthday, to which he responded, "I don't know who I am, I all of a sudden have amnesia".

According to the report, that's when the officer told Bradshaw to get out of the vehicle. When he refused, the officer opened the door and tried to restrain him.

Several officers had to pull Bradshaw from the vehicle and onto the ground but he refused to put his hands behind his back. Officers had to place his arms behind his back to handcuff him.

The officer reports that Bradshaw insulted them throughout the ordeal by calling them "pigs", threatening to hurt them and threatening to sue them.

Bradshaw was booked into the Okaloosa County Jail for resisting an officer.
