Nicholas Arnold Schock, 36, is charged with attacking a woman and exposing himself at a restaurant, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.
A Wachula man tattooed with swastikas and other racist symbols faces a new charge of indecent exposure after he went on a tirade at a Nokomis restaurant last week, proclaiming to be a white supremacist and striking a female staff member, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office reported Wednesday.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Nicholas Arnold Schock, 36, exposed himself during the incident at Pop’s Sunset Grill, 115 Circuit Road, on July 31. He is charged with battery, disturbing the peace and indecent exposure. He is being held at the Sarasota County Jail on $105,000 bail.
Schock appeared to tell deputies before he was taken into custody, in a video posted by a bystander on Facebook, that he has psychological issues.
“I’m a white supremacist,” Schock yelled on a video captured by bystander. “The Aryan nation will rule the world. People covered in tattoos will be my closest relatives, I promise you.”
Two men approached Schock, who began sauntering through the outside seating area with his shorts unbuttoned while making sexual threats to a guest.
After making a sexual threat to a woman at a table, Schock walked toward a female staff member and slapped her hard with an open hand and then punched her. She was knocked out by the assault.
About six men in the vicinity rushed to help her. One man put Schock in a headlock until he could be detained.
An arriving deputy said there was a large crowd surrounding a smaller group of people holding Schock down.
Deputies spoke with the woman who was struck. She said Schock entered the business cursing and screaming. He exposed his penis, the report states.
The woman tried to keep him from entering the business, but the man became more disruptive, and others tried to help remove him from the restaurant.
A GoFundMe page has been started for the server who was struck.
