Intoxicated Male Arrested for Disorderly Conduct

On Sunday night, FCSO deputies responded to Wedgewood Lane in Palm Coast after FCSO Communications received a report of a male acting belligerent and arguing with a female in the roadway. Upon arrival, the male, who was later identified as 40-year-old Shawn Madden, acted in an aggressive manner screaming and threatening to fight deputies.

As deputies attempted to deescalate the situation and calm Madden, he pulled his pants down exposing his genitals to deputies and other bystanders in the area. Deputies were able to safely take Madden into custody shortly later.

Madden was arrested for Disorderly Intoxication – Alcohol, Exposure of Sexual Organs, Assault on an Officer, and Resisting an Officer Without Violence. He was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility and later released after posting $2,000 bond.

“Being belligerent and aggressive toward deputies is just one way to land yourself in the Green Roof Inn,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Thankfully, our deputies were able to safely take him into custody.”
