Florida Man Drives Car Missing 2 Tires Due to ‘Paranormal Activity’
Florida Man Andres Orjuela Montealegre, 29, was stopped on the Interstate 75 on ramp near Marion Oaks after Marion County Sheriff’s deputies noticed the vehicle’s hazard lights were on and the driver’s side tires appeared deflated.
The deputy then realized that the tires were not deflated but were missing and that the driver was driving on the rims.

When asked about the damage to the vehicle, Orjuela Montealegre told the deputy someone had put a curse on him and that he had hit a curb too hard. The driver said he had to make a “do or die” choice where he could either drive home without tires or set the car on fire and sleep in the median, according to the body cam footage.

He was ordered to step out of the vehicle, and when he did, he appeared to be under the influence of something, and was unsteady on his feet.
The deputy asked him to perform field sobriety tests, and the traffic stop went downhill from there. He began cursing at the deputy and claimed the damage to his car was from “paranormal activity.” “Somebody put a curse on me,” the driver said. “That is paranormal activity.”
He then started threatening deputies, telling them.
“If you mess with me right now, let me tell you something, I’m going to break your head with a baseball bat,” he told the deputy. “I’m going to … skin you alive.”
He continued to make threats and claim the primary deputy was a “racist,” a “Nazi,” and a “bald headed white boy.” He was finally arrested and while the deputies conducted a search of the driver, he spat in the face of one of them and continued with his threats and cursing. As the deputy went to wipe the spit from his face, the arrestee began grabbing for his taser. As he was placed in the back of the patrol car, he kicked both deputies.
