(RNN – Cape Coral officers witnessed a naked man dancing around a campfire while standing in flames and singing “gibberish.”
It took place on Pine Island Lane, June 22. Officers received a report from the police that a man tried to set fire to the car with a knife.
According to police reports, John Hennessy, 27, also threw another stone through the window of his house.
After singing and dancing, officers stated that Hennessy took a wooden stick from them and began to swing it. They then pulled out a stun gun to take him into custody.
Hennessy sang in “unknown languages” despite being handcuffed.
He shouted nonsense and he shouted all the time. It was in another language, and I wasn’t sure what he was talking to me about,” Heather Hennessy (the suspect’s sister) told WFTS.
Police suspect John Hennessy might have ingested psychedelic mushrooms. Heather Hennessy claimed that she was burned while standing by the fire.
He was treated at the local hospital and later transferred to Li County Jail where he was charged for aggravated assault, criminal Hooliganism, and four counts each of assaulting law enforcement officers.
According to his mother, he has been acting strangely since leaving the rehab center. His family, the Hennessys, wants to raise awareness about mental illness.
