Pantless Man Crash Car into Jail Door

A man without pants reportedly crashed a car through the glass entrance doors of a Florida jail before allegedly threatening to kill the police.

On the evening of June 3, the lobby at the Martin County Jail was quiet and empty until a man driving a Toyota sedan slammed into the glass doors leading to the lobby of the building. The vehicle came to a halt when it struck the steel doors.

The driver stepped out of the vehicle, and it was reported that he had a blouse on, but he was not wearing pants. He allegedly threatened to kill the law enforcement officers before pouring oil on the floor and telling them he was going to light a fire. He reportedly threw several rubber snakes on the ground as he continued making threats.

Deputies and rescue workers tried to detain the man, but he reportedly grappled with them, and they decided they needed to use a Taser to make him stop. They also believed he could be under the influence of a narcotic. The first responders tried to calm the man by administering several doses of ketamine, but they reported that it was unsuccessful. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

After he was released, he was booked into the Martin County Jail where he is currently being held without bond. He is facing preliminary charges of four counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, one count of criminal mischief resulting in damage of $1,000 or greater, and one count of resisting arrest without violence. The case is still under review at the district attorney’s office.

According to the police, the incident caused thousands of dollars of damage.
