Five police officers in Florida over the weekend struggled to subdue a naked 22-year-old man who raised hell at a St. Augustine home and bit one of the residents, according to First Coast News.
The homeowners said they awoke to find their patio furniture destroyed and Jeremiah Haughee naked on their roof. When the homeowner and his son opened the door to confront Haughee, they were both attacked by the crazed man. He allegedly bit one of the men on the stomach as they tried to subdue him.
By the time police arrived on the scene, Haughee was pinned to floor inside the house, covered in his own urine and broken class. Haughee struggled as police tried to arrest him, biting and kicking the officers.
Police had to call for backup and use a stun gun three times before they were finally able to get him in a patrol car. He was put in handcuffs and leg shackles.
He was taken to Flagler Hospital and given a tranquilizer. He was later taken to the St. Johns County Jail, where he faces charges of burglary/assault, aggravated battery, simple battery, three counts of battery on a law enforcement officer and criminal mischief.
Haughee is not being tested to find if he was under the influence of drugs.
