A Florida man allegedly shown on video surveillance stole empty beer kegs from restaurants and was caught selling them to a local business.

Charles Daymont, 42, told Polk County deputies that he stole four beer kegs from a Carrabbas and Bone Fish Grill and sold them to a local Beverage Castle. He was arrested when he returned to the castle to sell eight more beer kegs, which he told deputies he obtained “from a friend.”

Daymont was charged with multiple counts of burglary, theft, and dealing in stolen property, and with other crimes such as aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer after he tried to flee deputies and rammed a patrol car in the process. 

Daymont is now in Polk County jail where he’s being held without bond; he was already on inmate release status for possession of cocaine and has arrest warrants from Tennessee for violation of probation.
