In a viral video from November 2023, an Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office deputy is seen firing shots at his own patrol vehicle after allegedly mistaking the sound of a falling acorn for gunfire. Marquis Jackson, who was in the backseat, was unlawfully handcuffed during the incident. Jackson was later not charged with anything, and the deputy's actions were deemed "not objectively reasonable" in an investigation. Jackson expressed mental distress from the incident, accusing law enforcement of attempting to cover it up.

The incident occurred after a woman reported allegations against Jackson, including taking a car and sending threats. The deputy reportedly resigned in December following the incident but it has since become a source of ridicule for the deputy's perceived incompetence.
