Now and then I’ll come across something in the news that pretty much defies explanation. And if Christian Radecki is being honest about his lack of substance ingestion or a mental health condition (there’s nothing official so far to indicate that he isn’t), I’m pretty certain this is one of those times.
The 44-year-old Floridian (of course he is) came to the attention of police because that’s what happens when you’re caught on surveillance video plowing your car into the back of a marked Sheriff’s Office vehicle, dancing on top of said vehicle while songs by Hall & Oates and Supertramp play on your own car’s radio and then breaking the windshield wipers and steeling some guy’s American flag when dance time is over.
And if that’s not weird enough for you, get a load of why he says he did it.
According to a Cape Coral Police report, Radecki said it all began when a “woman with fangs” came to his door, threatening that a human sacrifice was about to occur involving vampires. “Therefore, Radecki made the conscious decision to get the Sheriff of Nottingham to help him stop the slaughter of small children,” the report states.
Just in case you’re thinking that maybe this could somehow still make sense, the answer to your question is no, it was not Halloween. It was April.
After being taken to a local hospital for a mental evaluation, Redecki, already a convicted sex offender, was jailed on charges of disturbing the peace and criminal mischief.
