Fla. Man Arrested After Dance on Squad Car: Deputies



    Lee County Sheriff's Office

    A southwest Florida man, who claimed to fear vampires, was arrested earlier this year after a bizarre incident in which he danced on top of a patrol car before summoning the fictional Sheriff of Nottingham, according to the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

    The Sheriff's Office has released a YouTube video of the strange incident. In it, the man pulls up behind a patrol SUV parked outside a Cape Coral home. With the music blasting from his own car, the man climbs on top of the car and engages in a few minutes of dancing before ripping the windshield wipers off of the vehicle.

    According to information obtained by NBC affiliate WBBH, a witness says the man then stole a flag from a neighbor's yard and began waving it around and yelling.

    When deputies arrived, the man was still in the neighbor's yard with the stolen flag. As they questioned the man, he reportedly told officers that a woman with fangs was threatening him, and that a human sacrifice was about to occur involving vampires.

    Apparently, the man then said he made the "conscious decision" to notify the "Sheriff of Nottingham to help him stop the slaughter of small children."

    The Sheriff of Nottingham is, of course, a fictional character from the Robin Hood stories.

    The man has been identified as 45-year-old Christian Radecki. He claimed to not have taken any alcohol or drugs, and that he was not diagnosed with any medical health conditions.

    Radecki was transported to the hospital for medical clearance, and was later arrested and charged with criminal mischief and disturbing the peace.

    It is not known if Radecki has hired an attorney.
