Squeegee Wielding Orlando Man Dies After Tasing

When Orange County deputies received a report of a man ‘charging cars with a hammer’, it turned out to be some dude with a squeegee.

Cmdr. Spike Hopkins said deputies found a wrench in the man’s vehicle and determined the suspect could cause someone harm.  “The bizarre behavior was indicative of someone who was overdosing,” Hopkins said.

Reports show the deputies tried to calm the man, but it didn’t work. He was Tasered twice and then arrested.

Commander “Spike?” 

When you only have the police report, you never have the entire story.  Let’s wait and see if the man was really overdosing.  Hide your wrenches.

UPDATE:

Kissimmee resident Jose Anibal Amaro, the suspect in the story, died at Florida Hospital this morning.  Further reports claim he was ‘foaming at the mouth’ had ‘ingested cocaine,’ and took three taser shots, some of which did not affect him.

“Is this a troubling thing to have happen in the middle of the ongoing investigation?” WFTV reporter Kathi Belich asked Jim Solomons, Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

“I think troubling is inappropriate. You don’t go out at night intending to take a life. It’s unfortunate when it happens,” he said.
