Yes, clock, not Glock. Authorities in Florida seem to have their hands full with naked, rampaging psychos these days, the most recent of which, on February 4, 2014, took them 10 minutes to cuff due to his state of “excited delirium,” and the fact that he was fending them of with a “large clock, which had numerous sharp utensils protruding from its entire border,” according to Palm Beach County deputies.
An unnamed teen neighbor, 15, called police on Conrad Hopper, 17, when Hopper allegedly showed up at his house stripped naked and attacked him. According to the teen, Hopper “seemed to be intoxicated but not drunk.” Police are still trying to figure out what Hopper was on.
When deputies arrived they found Hopper ”breaking random things inside the house and still shouting nonsensical things such as, ’5,6,7,8, grandma, girlfriend,1,2,3,4,’” according to one deputy at the scene.
At first a menacing “Conrad was moving erratically around the kitchen with clinched fists and pacing aimlessly,” continued the deputy, but when deputies approached Hopper, he fought them. Police used their nightsticks, stun guns and a police dog in their ten minute melee with Hopper. According to deputies, ”Conrad immediately began to punch the dog’s head with closed fists and attempted to gouge out the dog’s eyes,” he fought responders off with the clock, and broke one officer’s arm before being placed in steel cuff, still kicking and thrashing. They wound up strapping him to a gurney and injecting him with Valium, which reportedly had no effect on him.
He was arrested and charged with battery of a police dog, burglary, criminal mischief and resisting arrest with violence, but he survived, which is more than can be said for Anesson Joseph, 28, the last crazed, naked, Florida psycho who, also on February 4, attacked several people and started chewing a teen’s face off before being shot dead by responding deputies in Del Rey, Florida.
Also on January 19, Nicholas Sorace of St. Pertersburg, Florida, was attacked in his home by a crazed, clothed, psychotic attacker who broke in, bludgeoned him, tried to gouge out his eyes and eat his face before police subdued the man, Brandon Davis. Though witnesses indicated that Davis might have been under the influence of a synthetic drug, police are still investigating the details.
