JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A naked man driving a stolen Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office cruiser
crashed into the woods just off Interstate 10 on Thursday as a News4Jax crew watched the
incident unfold.
News4Jax reporter Joe McLean watched the crash that happened off I-10 near the 348 milemarker just before noon.
JSO said it started around 11:30 a.m. when a JSO officer spotted a naked man on the side of
I-10 near Chaffee Road.
The officer stopped to try and help the man but he “became combative” and ran toward the
officer’s car and jumped into the driver’s seat, JSO said.
A JSO spokesperson said the officer’s car door was closed, but not locked.
The officer was wrestling with the naked man, trying to get him out of the driver’s seat,
according to JSO, but when the man started to drive away, the officer backed away because
he was at risk of getting injured by the moving car.
The naked man drove the JSO vehicle erratically and it crashed into the trees a few minutes
later.
The man, who appeared to be in a distressed mental state, lept out of the driver’s side
window and started screaming.
JSO officers were just seconds behind and arrived with weapons drawn and took the man
into custody.
The man was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
JSO said the officer involved was “clipped” by the vehicle as it drove away and sustained
minor injuries but wasn’t admitted to the hospital.

Florida has some weird ass stories...but mental illness isn't a joking matter.  Hopefully he gets the help he needs.

The article mentioned he appeared to be in a  "distressed mental state"  but it was just as likely drugs.

20+ years ago it was PCP, today it's meth & "bath salts" 🤷‍♂️

 

I've seen PCP make a 140lb guy so wild it took 8 staffers (included: 4 big County Sheriffs) to strap him to a gurney.
