NAPLES — A former Survivor cast member faces misdemeanor charges after deputies say he caused a disruption at an East Naples lounge early Sunday, the Collier County Sheriff's Office reports.
Ace G. Gordon, 1215 Dianna Ave., Naples, was charged with disorderly intoxication, obstruction of an officer and resisting arrest without violence.
Reports say deputies saw the security staff at Sway Lounge, 2858 U.S. 41 East, escorting Gordon out of the establishment early Sunday.
Staff members told deputies Gordon had struck a woman in the bar before being asked to leave. As he was being escorted out, Gordon reached toward a deputy’s face in an aggressive manner, according to reports.
Reports say Gordon resisted arrest and had to be taken to the ground to be handcuffed.
While en route to the Collier County jail, Gordon repeatedly told deputies he was famous, according to reports.
Gordon was the seventh person to get voted off of the show, which is set this season in Gabon.
