Half-naked man throws motor oil, rubber snakes on floor after crashing into Florida jail: ‘Came here to kill'

STUART, Fla. - A man who is accused of crashing into a Florida jail is now being held inside of it.

Investigators say 40-year-old Joseph Leedy was only wearing a woman’s blouse when he drove through the doors of the Martin County Jail on Monday night.

According to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, after the crash, he got out of his car without pants, poured motor oil on the lobby floor, and said he wanted to set it on fire.

Deputies say he continued making homicidal statements about police officers and said he wanted to "kill everyone" as he threw rubber snakes on the floor and fought with deputies and fire rescue crews.
