After attempting to take another guy’s clothing, a Florida man ended up laying on his stomach and was arrested, absolutely nude and armed with a machete.
Brandon Wright, 34, was reportedly gathering palmetto berries in the woods near DeLand, according to Volusia County authorities.
According to QFox13, Wright immediately grabbed a huge machete-style knife and demanded that a nearby surveyor hand up his clothing, wallet, and phone.
Wright tossed the machete and some of the berries he’d harvested at the surveyor, who began to cooperate. Fortunately, the sword only struck the surveyor by the grip and bounced off his chest.
He then fled into the woods, getting into a white Dodge Challenger and attempting to flee. A license plate reader informed authorities to Wright, and they were subsequently alerted to a nude guy at a service station.
Footage from a helicopter shows Wright being apprehended as police officers arrive on the area.
‘He’s nude, shouting at people in the parking lot,’ someone in the chopper said sadly. ‘Extremely lively.’
According to the official, Wright then begins to walk out from the filling station into traffic and begins ranting at people.
Wright then returns to the petrol station and begins doing push-ups for whatever reason.
Officers came soon after and apprehended Wright as he was lying on his stomach.
Wright was arrested and charged with armed robbery, aggravated violence with a dangerous weapon, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
He also roamed about nude in this region in August 2021, according to police, and has past convictions for false imprisonment, cocaine possession, and violence on a police officer.
