Man reportedly under the influence breaks into GCSC, No Name Lounge

Panama City, Fla. - An eventful night for one man was a big disturbance for others. 

Police say Michael Allen Clark first broke into the No Name Lounge in Panama City. 

We don't have a mugshot for Clark yet, because police told us he was uncooperative when he arrived at Bay County Jail. 

"The cleaning crew came in and found glass broken all over the floor, back door broken out, and our vintage etched window in the back," co-owner Jacob Lehtio said. 

The vintage window with the old bridge connecting Panama City and Panama City Beach etched into it has been there for thirty years. An owner said that was the most troubling part about the break in. 

"He had three other windows to chose from. He had to break the most sentimental one. So it's kind of heart breaking," he said.

Panama City Police say Clark then went on to Gulf Coast State College. He shattered at least four doors. Investigators said they believe the man was under the influence of drugs.

"It could be some other stuff we don't know but we think it's meth," Lt. Jon Morris, Panama City Police, said. 

Police then responded to reports of a man waving people down in the street. That's when Clark was taken into an ambulance to treat his arms from the broken glass. But the ambulance ride wasn't on Clark's agenda for the early morning.

"While he was slowing down, he did jump out of the ambulance but was quickly detained," Morris said.

Clark spent the night at the hospital but is now being held and charged at the Bay County Jail.
