Naked Florida Man Jumps Off Roof, Bites Man in Stomach, Gets Tasered Multiple Times
Oh, great, yet another story of a naked Florida man who went out of his damn mind and decided he had a taste for human flesh.
St. Augustine County Police found Jeremiah Aaron Haughee, 22, nude in a puddle of urine and broken glass in the early hours of Saturday morning after he went on a naked rampage at a random home. But before they could properly detain him, he jumped off a second-story porch balcony, was zapped with a Taser five times, and bit a man in the stomach.
According to WTSP, the incident began around 4:30 a.m. this past Saturday. After receiving a call that Haughee was naked and being destructive, police arrived at a home in Flagler Beach, Florida, to find the man with blond dreadlocks lying in broken glass and his own urine. He was being restrained by two other men on the floor inside the home.
Police took over from there and handcuffed Haughee, but he wouldn't go down without a fight. He became combative, and one officer went outside to retrieve leg shackles. He began to spit and bite the other officer and managed to move his cuffed hands from his back to his front all while kicking an officer.

Tasers came out, and Haughee then either fell or jumped off the second-story balcony. He landed on a concrete stepping stone but immediately got up and seemed unfazed. Police then zapped him again and restrained him.
He again fought, and was stunned for a third time.
The two officers decided Haughee was just too much for them to handle alone, and they called for backup.
While they were waiting for backup, the officers continued to use the stun gun on Haughee, but he just wouldn't stay down.
Even the arrival of three additional cops didn't deter Mr. Dreadlocks. He bit an officer on the leg so hard he required medical attention.
Haughee was finally subdued, and police put him in the back of a squad car and took him to a hospital.
Haughee's previous mug shots
So what started all of this anyway?
Haughee apparently began the spree by destroying the homeowner's back-yard patio furniture. He then stripped naked and climbed onto the home's roof. Then, still naked, he jumped off the roof and landed on the hood of the homeowner's car, breaking the windshield and causing about $1,500 in damage.
When the homeowner and his son opened the door to see what was going on, Haughee tackled the two men and broke a picture frame in the process. During the melee, Haughee also peed on the floor. That explains the urine and broken glass.
During the fight, Haughee also bit the homeowner in the stomach. Police say the man could be permanently disfigured from the chomping, but he denied medical treatment.
Haughee was arrested on charges of burglary/assault, aggravated battery, simple battery, three counts of battery on a law enforcement officer, and criminal mischief. Police were not able to test him to see if he was on drugs.
