A 36-year-old Daytona Beach man is now facing a felony charge for threatening to kill a City of Daytona Beach employee with a piece of electronic equipment assigned to that employee as part of his daily duties.

Kevin J. Sbrusch bonded out of Volusia County Jail (VCJ) shortly after officers with the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) took him into custody just before 4:30 p.m. last Wednesday (May 11, 2022) at his Boylston Avenue home.

Sbrusch was booked at VCJ on one charge of corruption by threat against a public servant, according to Neighborhood Services Captain Scott Lee.

“Unfortunately, these types of negative encounters are somewhat common for my neighborhood services inspectors,” Lee added. “However, we’re not going to tolerate anyone making death threats against anyone else for doing their job. We will respond swiftly and appropriately to ensure our employees are protected while performing their duties.”

Body camera footage from the victim – Neighborhood Services Inspector Kevin Yates - shows Sbrusch confronted him while he was documenting illegally parked vehicles found on Sbrusch’s property for an upcoming court hearing.

During that confrontation, Sbrusch threatened to snatch the tablet Inspector Yates was using to take photos of those code violations and beat him to death with the tablet. That prompted Inspector Yates to call the police.

Sbrusch’s initial bond amount was set at $2,500, per the arrest report.
