Dec. 2 (UPI) -- A Florida State fan who celebrated his team’s victory over the weekend by threatening people at a Gainesville bar with a machete was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Brant Brown, 37, approached a man and woman who were in the midst of an argument inside the EndZone Bar and Grill on Saturday night and allegedly asked the man if he wanted to step outside and fight.

After being stopped by some Florida Gators fans, the Seminoles supporter invited all the Gators fans in the establishment to come meet him in the parking lot.

The manager called 911 and followed Brown outside. Brown then got a machete from his truck and charged at the manager after threatening him.

The woman who Brown had approached at the bar went outside and Brown threatened her as well before fleeing in his truck on Alligator Alley.

After he stopped behind Mother’s Pub & Grill while still brandishing the machete, an out-of-town police officer in FSU gear was able to calm Brown down before Gainesville police arrived and arrested him.
