A Florida man is facing many charges after he allegedly threatened the lives of the residents of a home he entered, in addition to police, and workers at a local hospital.
On September 4, a married couple was in their home in R Section, a community of Palm Coast, Florida.
While they were preparing a meal, a stranger reportedly entered their house. The husband ordered him to leave.
The man walked out the door, and after he exited, he allegedly began hitting the windows and yelled threats that he was going to murder them.
The couple thought he was trying to get back into the house, and they became frightened and called the authorities.
Deputies from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office went to the address, and they found the person they believed was the suspect in the yard of a nearby residence.
He was arrested, and when the deputies tried to put him in the police vehicle, the suspect allegedly struggled and resisted. He additionally reportedly threatened to kill the officers.
While he was in the car, the man allegedly slammed his head against the window and continued acting out.
When he talked to the deputies about the incidents at the homes, the man reportedly said he had been snorting “hot rails of meth,” and he was unable to recall the reason he was there.
The authorities transported the 32-year-old man to the AdventHealth Palm Coast emergency room to see if he needed medical care. While he was there, the man allegedly continued being uncooperative and made death threats to the staff.
After he was released from the hospital, the suspect was booked into the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Jail. He is facing felony charges for burglary of a dwelling with assault and battery, felony tampering with witnesses, and misdemeanor charges for trespass, disorderly intoxication, loitering, threat of death or serious bodily harm to a law enforcement officer, and two counts of resisting an officer without violence. He is being held on a $119,000 bond.
