Kevin Sbrusch, 36, was arrested at 4:30 p.m. after allegedly threatening to kill a code enforcement official who was taking pictures outside his house to document alleged illegally parked vehicles for an upcoming court hearing, according to FOX 35 Orlando.
Body camera video from the Neighborhood Services Inspector, Kevin Yates, shows Sbrusch making the threat to kill Yates with the iPad being used to take pictures of the property. Sbrusch told the inspector that he was “harassing” him.
“If you touch me, I will call the police,” Yates told Sbrusch.
In response, Sbrusch told the officer “I will beat you to death with your f—-ng stupid f—-ng iPad.”
Sbrusch has been charged with felony corruption by threat against a public servant, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department.
Neighborhood Services Captain Scott Lee said that these types of encounters are “somewhat common” for neighborhood services inspectors.
“Unfortunately, these types of negative encounters are somewhat common for my neighborhood services inspectors,” Lee said. “However, we’re not going to tolerate anyone making death threats against anyone else for doing their job. We will respond swiftly and appropriately to ensure our employees are protected while performing their duties.”
Sbrusch has been bonded out of jail, according to the report.
