A naked “white” savage went on a rampage last Saturday, biting a chunk out of a man’s stomach after leaping from a roof onto a truck on Palmetto Avenue, according to the St. Augustine Law Enforcement Department.
After it took several officers to subdue him, 22-year-old Jeremiah Aaron Haughee of North Central Avenue in Flagler Beach was booked into the St. Johns County jail on five counts of battery, according to the arrest report.
Three of the batteries were against a law enforcement official, while Haughee was also charged with burglary and criminal mischief before he was released Sunday on $32,000 bail.
Law enforcers were called to the scene about 4:30 a.m. to find a naked “white” beast being restrained by two men outside their home on Palmetto Avenue.
The men said they were asleep when they heard someone destroying their lawn furniture, then climbing on their roof before leaping onto a truck and denting its hood.
When the men came out of their house to see what was happening, Haughee ran in and tackled them. He urinated on the floor before biting one of them in the stomach as they held him for law enforcement, according to the report.
It took five officers with two sets of handcuffs, leg shackles, a spit-prevention hood and Taser strikes to control the “white” brute. Three officers were kicked, hit or bitten during the arrest.
Haughee was taken to Flagler Hospital and anesthetized to calm him down, then jailed. There is no initial indication if he was on any substance during his rampage, according to investigators.
