Florida cops subdue naked, sword-wielding man

ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. (CNN) — What Jacob Jaquett saw as he was trying to help a friend move on Saturday may sound completely unbelievable. Jacob saw a naked man with a 3-4 foot sword.

“I was honestly kind of scared cause I didn’t know what he had with him or what was going on,” said Jacob. He says the man began charging people and screaming at them. (nats)

CNN reached out to the sheriff’s office multiple times to get more information. They could only say there was a call to service at the apartment complex and couldn’t comment on anything else.

As for the rest of the story, Jaquett says other members of the complex were able to get the man to put the sword down. “Luckily, a man was there that was in the Navy I think and he kind of subdued the guy and, eventually, got him to drop the sword and then tackled him to the ground and waited until the cops came.”
