A man trying to avoid contact with an Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputy  was charged with carrying a concealed weapon after a machete fell out of his  shorts.

The 33-year-old Fort Walton Beach man was standing on Miracle Strip Parkway  Aug. 29 when a deputy stopped to talk to him, according to his arrest  report.

When the deputy approached, the man reached into his shorts and the 30-inch  machete fell to the ground. A subsequent search revealed that the man  had a butter knife concealed in his shoe, the report said.

He refused to allow himself to be handcuffed without a struggle, so was also  charged with resisting an officer.

The man later told deputies he carried the knives for protection.
