A security guard from the Lani Kai Island Resort in Fort Myers Beach was caught on film knocking out a patron, however the resort claims the guard was acting in self defense.

According to NBC’2 News, “Melissa Schnieder, Lani Kai public relations, said the incident stemmed from the man ‘punching, pushing and spitting blood’ at security staff,” adding that the security guard was not fired, but “counseled and reprimanded.”
