Jonathan Mattox, a 30-year-old Phoenix resident, claims to be the "baddest motherfucker alive."
At least that's what he told the cops after security guards at Talking Stick Resort's casino prevented him from driving away from the casino plastered, according to court documents obtained by New Times.
According to the documents, security guards told Mattox they would provide him with a cab home from the casino, which is right off Loop 101 and Indian Bend Road, early in the morning on June 9.
Mattox responded by being "physically and verbally abusive" to casino workers, which led to the cops' arrival.
According to a probable-cause statement, Mattox "was combative and resisting arrest . . . kicking, fighting, and swinging his arms while yelling very loudly while attempting to bite medical personnel several times."
Mattox wouldn't stop trying to kick things, even after police had him cuffed and in a squad car, and he claimed he'd find out where the officers lived, kill them, and rape their family members, the documents state.
Mattox added that he was the "baddest motherfucker alive" and added that he "did time for manslaughter," according to the documents.
(According to state prison records, the latter part's actually true, as he served about 5 1/2 years in prison until his release in late 2006.)

Mattox tried to get the officers to take off the cuffs so they could settle the situation with a fight. But believe it or not, the cops didn't take him up on that.
Once at the jail, Mattox proceeded to slam his head into a wall, "busting his upper lip and lower nose," according to the documents.
Mattox was booked on a pair of felony charges, as well as a pair of misdemeanors.
