Orion Paul McCranie, 33, 14299 Walsingham Road, Largo, Florida was arrested on August 27, 2013 at 9:42 pm for disturbing the peace and simple assault. A deputy responded to a disturbance at a casino in Amelia. Upon arrival, the deputy learned that McCranie threatened a casino security officer saying that the officer would, "need to call for back up..." When the deputy made contact with McCranie, he smelled the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath. The deputy asked for his identification. McCranie became distracted telling the deputy that he lost some of his casino chips. The deputy asked two more times to see McCranie's ID before he provided it. Following the investigation, McCranie was placed under arrest. While patting down the offender, the casino chips that McCranie stated were missing were located in his pants pocket. McCranie was transported to the parish jail for booking and incarceration. He was released on a $500 bond.
