Survivor Gabon cast member Ace Gordon was arrested in Naples, Fla., early Sunday morning for resisting arrest after he was kicked out of a bar for reportedly hitting a woman. He was voted out of the game during its seventh episode, which aired Oct. 30.
According to his arrest report (page 12 in this PDF), he was arrested at 2:22 a.m. and booked into jail at 6:26 a.m. “Gordon resisted arrest and had to be taken to the ground to be handcuffed,” The Naples Daily News reports, citing Collier County Sherrif’s deputies’ reports. He “was charged with disorderly intoxication, obstruction of an officer and resisting arrest without violence.”
Earlier, Sway Lounge security staff “told deputies Gordon had struck a woman in the bar before being asked to leave. As he was being escorted out, Gordon reached toward a deputy’s face in an aggressive manner,” according to the report.
The best part: The report says that “[w]hile en route to the Collier County jail, Gordon repeatedly told deputies he was famous.”
He has since been released on $1,500 bond.
