“What are you going to do, fat boy?”

Not exactly the words a cop expects to hear from a man about to be placed under arrest.

But a man, after putting a Fort Walton Beach police officer in a bear hug, asked that very question, according to

The drama begin when 35-year-old David Trent Smith was yelling at a hotel clerk and fighting with two women in the lobby on Sunday, police said.
