A 40-year-old homeless man has been arrested and charged after reportedly driving his vehicle into Martin County Jail in Florida on Monday night before proceeding to threaten to burn the place down and "kill everyone." Joseph Leedy, who was wearing only a blouse at the time, also threw rubber snakes on the floor, expressed disdain for Donald Trump, and allegedly assaulted officers as they struggled to detain him.

He was subsequently charged with four counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and criminal mischief of over $1000. He is currently being held at the jail into which he crashed.

As WPTV reports, Chief Deputy John Budensiek explained that the suspect "kept saying things like, 'the devil told me to kill everyone' and he kept sharing his disdain for President Donald Trump." Investigators are awaiting toxicology reports to determine whether Leedy was under the influence of drugs at the time of the rampage. He was given "multiple doses of ketamine" to help calm him, but it didn't work.

According to the Martin County Sheriff's Office, while Leedy managed to break through the front doors of the jail, his vehicle was prevented from making it any further by the strong steel frame. He instead jumped out of the driver's seat dressed in "a ladies blouse and no pants," and proceeded to wreak havoc on the facility and those working there.  

Upon entering, he declared he "came here to kill police," and poured motor oil on the floor, threatening to ignite it. In a statement, the Sheriff's Office said Leedy then "continued making homicidal statements about police officers and expressed his desire to 'kill everyone' while he threw rubber snakes on the floor and fought with deputies and fire rescue personnel."

The crash caused "thousands of dollars in damage," though only Leedy sustained injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital to receive treatment, where he "continued to be uncooperative with personnel," then eventually ended up back in the jail.
