When Perez arrived, the officers asked him if he had any drugs or weapons. He said he did not. Deputies, however, discovered a bag of white powder between his toes. Perez said it was cocaine, but said it was not his.
Perez said the powder bag belonged to someone else, but that person was not named in the police reports.

In addition to the charge of aggravated battery, Perez, of the 1900 block of Delaware Avenue in Fort Pierce, was arrested on charges of possession of cocaine and smuggling contraband into a detention center.
