A Jackson County commissioner is facing battery charges after an incident at a Tallahassee nightclub.
Police say 31-year-old Jeremy Branch punched someone at the Baja Beach Club Tuesday night.
Officers say two men accidentally bumped into Branch around 2 a.m. after the men apologized, Branch punched one of them in the face.
Court records say that when confronted by police, Branch refused to give details about the incident and repeatedly said “I’m a county commissioner in Jackson county. Don’t put your hands on me.”
Branch has been released from jail on bond.
