Florida Man Arrested After Allegedly Slapping Woman and Yelling: 'I'm a White Supremacist'

A man in southwest Florida who claimed to be a white supremacist and allegedly slapped a woman has been arrested after a video of his antics made their rounds on the internet.

The incident was captured in a video that was shared widely online, showing 36-year-old Nicholas Arnold Schock half naked with his shorts falling off as he yells angrily. Law & Crime first reported on the incident, noting that the video was captured in the city of Nokomis in Sarasota County, Florida.

When reached for comment, the Sarasota County Sheriff's office told Newsweek that it had no further information on the arrest beyond a Probable Cause Affidavit (PCA), which the office sent by email.

The affidavit explained that Schock was detained at Pop's Sunset Grill and had entered cursing and began removing his clothes. He reportedly exposed part of his groin area and was yelling about "the Aryan brotherhood and white supremacy" when police arrived. A witness told police that Schock threatened to kill "everyone in the establishment" and claimed he had "killed n******."

Facebook user Shelley Troyer first shared several videos of the incident to her profile on Friday afternoon; the clips were later circulated on Twitter. Although it's unclear exactly how the incident started, Schock is seen half naked being confronted by several individuals. He tells them to "call Donald Trump."

"I'm a white supremacist," the white man says in the video. "The Aryan nation will rule the world!" he adds. "People covered in tattoos are going to be my closest relatives, I promise you."

A bystander complains that there are children present, but the man replied with an expletive, saying: "I don't give a f***" adding that they should "call" Trump. He then threatens to sexually assault an unidentified woman before physically attacking her.

"If you don't know Donald Trump, I'm not going nowhere. I will butt-f*** this b***h on the table right now," he can be heard saying. As the woman stands in front of him, confronting him, he then slaps her hard across the face.

A group of men grab the man and wrestle him to the ground. After he is on the ground in a chokehold by another unidentified man in a cyan-colored shirt, Schock appears to pass out.

Records publicly available through the county sheriff's website showed that Schock, a resident of Wachula, was arrested on Friday for "battery" described as "touch or strike," and for "disturbing the peace." Bond was set at $620, and his arraignment date is scheduled for August 24.
