Alachua man arrested for disorderly intoxication, threatening two women, resisting arrest


Michael Jewel Coulon, 46, was arrested yesterday evening after Alachua Police Department officers responded to a call about a fight in progress and reportedly found Coulon “pac[ing] around threatening to fight Law Enforcement.”

The officers reported that when they arrived, they found Coulon in an “obviously irate state,” and he began walking towards them aggressively, saying, “Y’all f***ing want some” and pounding his chest. He then allegedly punched the front of a marked patrol car. He was reportedly ordered to the ground numerous times but continued to pace around and threaten the officers. The officers wrote that he was “heavily effected by alcohol consumption.”

Once Coulon was subdued, the officers interviewed the initial callers, two women who said they had been walking through the parking lot of the One 51 Place apartment complex when Coulon approached them and began yelling expletives at them, balling his fists, and making statements about fighting. The women said that because of Coulon’s large size and aggressive behavior, they feared for their safety.

Coulon has been charged with simple assault/threat to do violence, two counts of disorderly intoxication in a public place, and resisting arrest. He was taken to the hospital and will be held on bond of $40,000 when he is released from the hospital. Coulon currently lives in Alachua but has an out-of-county criminal history from 2000 to 2022.
