Here’s an excuse you don’t hear often. A Florida Man was driving a car with two missing tires and he blamed it all on paranormal activity.
Marion County Sheriff’s deputies pulled up on this Florida Man, Andres Orjuela-Montealegre, they thought that his driver’s side tires were deflated. Upon closer inspection, the deputies discovered that Orjuela-Montealegre was driving on his rims! They asked him about his car’s lack of tires and he told the deputies that someone had put a curse on him and that the missing tires were from hitting the curb too hard. Orjuela-Montealegre went on to say that “he was given a ‘do or die’ choice in which he could either drive home without tires or set the car on fire and sleep on the median.”
Deputies proceeded to give Orjuela-Montealegre a field sobriety test where he started to curse and insult the deputies and told them: “Somebody put a curse on me. That is paranormal activity.” The Florida Man got physical with the deputies, even tried to grab their taser. Orjuela-Montealegre was arrested and charged with battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, resisting an Officer with violence, attempt to deprive an Officer of means of protection or communication, corrupt by threat against Public Servant and driving under the influence. Here is the very NSFW – extreme language bodycam video:
