Man accused of deadly shooting in Naples arrested again while out on bond
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – The man accused of shooting a man to death at Rusty’s Bar & Grill in Naples was arrested Monday for a DUI crash while he was out on bond.
Jason Ortiz, 30, of North Port, was arrested just after midnight after deputies said he drove through the median of a roundabout at Edgewater Drive and Midway Blvd. causing damage to multiple road signs.
According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, a witness reported Ortiz tried to drive away and leave the scene of the crash.
Deputies said, Ortiz smelled of alcohol and had trouble standing. The 30-year-old refused field sobriety exercises and was placed under arrest, according to the arrest report.
Ortiz, reportedly, threatened a deputy saying he would look up the deputy’s wife and children’s information while on the way to the hospital for a medical evaluation.
The 30-year-old was out on a bond out of Collier County for second-degree murder after a shooting left a man dead at Rusty’s Raw Bar & Grill in March, according to CCSO.
The shooting, reportedly, happened during a fight between the person that died and Ortiz who was also shot.
Otiz was out on a $200,000 bond posted on March 17 just over a week after the shooting occurred, according to court documents.
The 30-year-old is facing additional charges of DUI with property damage, resisting arrest, and threatening a deputy.
Court documents show Ortiz’s bond out of Collier County was revoked Tuesday and he was taken into custody.
