Don Crandall Jr., 49, who clearly has not a care in the world, turned himself in on Friday after he was charged with improper exhibition of a firearm, according to NBC News. If convicted, he will serve no more than a year in jail, the Florida State Attorney’s Office notes.
Crandall, who was the general manager of the Baymont by Wyndam, Tallahassee Central, was fired from his job last week after video of him confronting the students went viral.
In the video, Crandall could be seen getting increasingly hostile, before threatening the students.
“Let me be clear: You ain’t getting in this f–king elevator,” Crandall said in the video. “You think I’m f–king kidding?”
“He made sure that we saw the gun. He was holding his arm in a way to emphasize,” Isaiah Butterfield, the student who filmed what was happening said, according to NBC News.
