Naked man, 22, “leaps from roof, dents truck and urinates on floor before biting chunk out of another man”s stomach”
A naked man allegedly flew into a violent rampage, biting a chunk out of another man”s stomach after leaping from his roof onto a truck and urinating inside his home.
Officers responding to the scene needed backup to restrain Jeremiah Aaron Haughee with leg shackles, a spit hood and handcuffs after he continued fighting despite being Tasered five times.
Authorities did not carry out tests on Haughee to see if he was under the influence of any drugs.
Police first arrived at the home in Flagler Beach, Florida at 4.30 a.m. to find two men restraining the naked 22-year-old in a puddle of urine and glass.

They said they had woken to someone destroying their garden furniture, before hearing the person climb on their roof. He jumped onto a truck and dented its hood, leaving $1,500 worth of damage.
When the two men came outside to find out what was going on, Haughee ran into the house and tackled them, knocking a picture frame to the floor and smashing it.
He then urinated on the floor before biting one of them in the stomach as they tried to restrain him, a report from the St. Augustine Police Department said.
Police said the bite was so severe that it will leave the victim permanently disfigured.

When two officers arrived, they handcuffed Haughee and tried to move him from the broken glass and urine, but he started kicking out at them.

When one officer returned to the patrol car to fetch leg shackles, Haughee tried to spit on and bite the other, First Coast News reported.
After being unable to restrain Haughee, the officers then attempted to Taser him.
He fell down after each five-second shock, only to get up and begin attacking them again, the report noted.
When three additional officers arrived on the scene, they still struggled to control the man and he bit one officer on the lower leg. He required medical treatment.
Police then put him in a spit hood and used a set of handcuffs to attach his leg shackles and handcuffs together.
He was taken to Flagler Hospital and given Ketamine, which calmed him down and put him to sleep.
He was booked into the St. Johns County jail on five counts of battery – three against a police officer – according to the arrest report. He was released on Sunday on $32,000 bail.
Scene: Haughee woke up the homeowners when he jumped from a roof onto their truck at 4.30 a.m.
Police said Haughee is not being tested to see if was under the influence of illegal drugs as there is no statute for such a test.
But Haughee has been arrested in the past for possession of drug paraphernalia and for possession of marijuana.
He was also arrested in 2008, when he was 18, for resisting arrest following alleged petty theft.
