Carter James Scudder, 21, of Naples, Collier County, Florida, United States was recently arrested by the Collier County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with resisting a law enforcement officer without violence and disorderly conduct.
On the evening of April 8, 2021, Scudder was at the Ninja Japanese Steak House in Naples. He allegedly yelled anti-Asian racist slurs in the middle of the restaurant that night.
According to staff, Scudder refused to leave the restaurant and screamed at the bartender to make him drinks so they called police. He then tried to slap a woman outside the restaurant, witnesses told ABC 7.
When Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived, they found Scudder chasing a woman in the parking lot of the restaurant. The deputies repeatedly told him to stop but he fled the area and hid behind an air conditioner.
Scudder was arrested that night and was booked at the Naples Jail Center. He has bonded out of jail, Wink News has learned.
