(MSN) – A South Florida man fired a gun at a Miami Beach hotel after police say he became enraged over a mother and son's lack of social distancing.
Douglas Marks, 29, was arrested Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, use of a firearm to commit a felony and discharging a firearm in public. Jail records show he's being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $11,000 bond.
The incident occurred Monday evening in the lobby of Crystal Beach Suites on Collins Avenue. Marks noticed a woman, later identified as Veronica Pena, sitting on a couch with her son. He approached the two and told them to leave.

"You all aren't social distancing," Marks barked, according to the arrest report.
Ignoring him, Pena and her son didn't move. She then overheard Marks say, "Let me take care of them, I have two people not following directions," before he grabbed a black firearm and let off several shots, according to Miami Beach police.
