LAFAYETTE, Ind. (CBS) — Authorities say an Indiana man got so angry when he was arrested for stealing a car that he threatened to eat the police officers who arrested him, as well as their entire families and their dogs.
CBS affiliate WISH-TV, Indianapolis, reports Paul Brock, 39, of Frankfort, Ind., was arrested at 10 p.m. on Friday of last week for after stealing a car from a Speedway gas station in Lafayette, Ind. The gas station manager said she had just unlocked the car and left it running so it would warm up by the end of her shift, WISH reported.
Police caught up with Brock and pulled him over in a Pay Less parking lot at Maple Point Drive and Indiana Route 38 in Lafayette, WISH reported. Before he was arrested, Brock kicked a police dog in the head twice, the station said.
Brock, who was drunk, was taken to an area hospital. Detectives tell WISH that once there, he said he would hunt down all the officers who arrested him and eat them, as well as their children, dogs, and entire families.
Brock’s blood alcohol level was 0.26 at the time of his arrest, more than three times the legal limit, WISH reported.
He stands charged with auto theft, auto theft with a prior conviction and intimidation – all felonies – as well as misdemeanor charges of resisting law enforcement, striking a law enforcement animal, and two DUI-related counts, WISH reported.
His bond was set at $25,000, and he was being held at the Tippecanoe County, Ind., Jail as of earlier this week.
