PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. -- A spring breaker from Kokomo, Ind., got more than a few laughs when he tossed a cooler full of ice over a 12th floor balcony of a Panama City Beach condominium.

The ice chunks and water landed on the pool deck at the Legacy by the Sea Condominiums, inches away from Bay County Sheriff's Deputy Chris Faircloth on Wednesday.

The News Herald of Panama City reports Faircloth looked skyward and saw 20-year-old Tate Andrews doubled over in laughter at the edge of the balcony. The deputy went to the room where he found Andrews in the bathroom "attempting to elude arrest."

Andrews now faces third-degree felony charges for throwing a deadly missile. He remained in the Bay County Jail on Friday with bail set at $1,500.
