Felony Charges for 20-Year-Old Palm Coast Man for Throwing Eggs and Potato at Cops

Anthony Fennick.

An odd incident had drawn four Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies to Palm Coast’s R Section, near Ralph Cater Park, late Tuesday evening: someone had called 911 to report a loud banging “coming from his bedroom window.” An even odder incident unfolded as deputies investigated, resulting in the arrest of Anthony Fennick, 20, of 13 Richardson Drive, on four counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement officers, among other charges.

Fennick is accused of throwing eggs and a potato at the cops as he hid.

The four deputies were dispatched to 1 Ritchie Place at close to 11 p.m. Tuesday to investigate the alleged window-banging. A perimeter check of the property produced nothing. But Fennick was outside his house, inquiring about the cops’ presece. They explained it. He thanked them and went back in.

As deputies spoke together, standing by a patrol car, one of the deputies noticed that a potato wedge had landed behind them. They looked around the property at 15 Richardson but saw nothing. As they spoke further, an egg struck the front passenger side door of a patrol car, nearly striking two of the four deputies.

They conducted a further search of the area, again turning up nothing. But by the time they were done, three more eggs had landed on the street, along with a piece of citrus. Someone was messing with the cops. Just after 11:30 p.m., more deputies arrived at the scene as two of the deputies made contact again with Fennick, behind his house. One of them told him that if he was throwing things at police, he should stop and go back in his house, according to an incident report. Fennick complied, though it wasn’t long after that that Fennick found hismelf under arrest.

The incident report doesn’t explain what had taken place between the time Fennick had gone back in his house and when he was handcuffed. But the report states that a deputy called for an additional unit to investigate the area of 4 Richelieu Lane, where Fennick was later found again. Deputies searched him and found an egg in a pocket of his. They’d spotted him near an air conditioning unit at 4 Richelieu.

Fennick lives with his step-father, Daniel Williams, and his mother, Erika Williams, who showed the cops the carton of eggs Erika had bought the previous day. It was missing five eggs. A knife smeared with what looked like potato moisture from a recent slicing was on the kitchen counter.

Based on that evidence, Fennick was arrested and booked at the Flagler County jail, where he remained Wednesday afternoon on $3,000 bond.

    Oh my God! The violence!
    A dumb move to throw things at cops…
    But seriously, to charge this guy with a felony is ridiculous.
    It wasn’t a grenade after all…

    A little mayo and mustard, and this may have been another story.

    Anthony Fennick may not be well.

  2. Chef Bill says:

    To bad he didn’t throw some Mayonnaise and made Potato salad !!!

  3. Mr. PotatoHead/Eggman says:

    Did the article say he was 2 years-old or 20 years-old? Anyway, his punishment should be community service in the form of hand peeling 3000 potatoes and an additional 3000 eggs for charity during the holiday season.

    He coulda put an eye out.

  10. Tim says:

    Today its potato wedges and citrus, tomorrow its bombs and bullets…thank you FCSO for getting this scum off the street I can sleep now that I don’t have to worry about potato’s flying at my car.

  11. Jose Caniusi says:

    He should have thrown donuts.

  12. Flagler Native says:

    So this guy is charged with a felony and will have a record for the rest of his life, (if convicted) unable to get employment further pushing him into a life of crime.

    Good job FCSO! All for throwing food stuffs.

  13. confidential says:

    With all due respect to our deputies for catching this resented man, but the comment about the donuts made me laugh. I think this kid is messed up by his parents split and wants to get back at his mother.

    Thank God no one was struck by the flying objects. It would be a pity to see the FCSO with egg on their face.

    It is a miracle that the person wasn’t shot for attacking the police in such a violent manner with such dangerous weapons. FCSO must have shown great restraint in the face of such adversity. You go, you Flagler heroes!!!

    Seems like steep charges for a young man who may be developmental disabled.

  16. Just me says:

    What an IDIOT!!! but really a felony?

  17. Gkimp says:

    Law Enforcement’s mission is to enforce the laws on the books. The elements of his actions, by law constitute a felony. So procedure, to ensure or at least encourage equal enforcement is to charge a felony. The Courts can then amend the charge depending on the circumstances. This guy could be a constant problem to his neighbors and law enforcement.

    No doubt, part of the youth culture in Palm Coast that thinks that playing Hip-Hop and Rap, wearing a baseball cap backwards and throwing eggs at police officers makes them bad asses. They wouldn’t last two minutes out in the real world where the real players play.

  19. Geezer says:

    “Today its potato wedges and citrus, tomorrow its bombs and bullets”

    Incorrect: Too expensive. I say he graduates to kosher pickles and chocolate bunnies.

  20. Al Harrington says:

    Stuck on stupid boy.

  21. Dave says:

    Stupid people do stupid things. I like this ” Deputies searched him and found an egg in a pocket of his”
    Oh my was it a loaded egg. Lock him up with some real criminals for a few weeks.


    I had the same thought as others. For the want of a little mayo and mustard we have a felony instead of a potluck.

    So he throws eggs and potato wedges at cops and he is charged with a felony but when someone attacks a regular citizen with a knife,gun or any other deadly weapon its NOT attempted murder but an assault????
