Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies responding to “shots fired” reports on the old Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon Monday night found a man in full pirate costume packing operational black-powder pistols in holsters on each hip.

Jamie Spiering, 58, was also allegedly armed with a sword and two knives. Spiering, who said he is an entertainer, told deputies he was on the bridge with friends for sunset. He said there were no projectiles in the pistols, and that he had fired them toward the water.

But witnesses told a different story, said Deputy Becky Herrin, the Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. They said Spiering fired one shot in the direction of cars traveling on the functioning Seven Mile Bridge, which runs parallel to the old bridge, now only used by pedestrians.

Spiering was arrested and booked into county jail on a misdemeanor count of disturbing the peace. He was released on $328 bail later that night.

I profiled Jaime in the last FTPI Surgeon's Journal. He used to live on Pigeon Key, which is where the old 7 Mile bridge goes. He's a nice guy.
