Florida Man Reportedly Dances On Police Car To Summon Help In Vampire Battle

Authorities in Florida have released bizarre video footage of a man dancing on the roof of a police cruiser in an attempt to summon help battling a "woman with fangs."

According to court documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, a 44-year-old Cape Coral man is facing charges of disturbing the peace and property damage, stemming from an April 7 incident, which was captured on surveillance video.

In the video, which authorities released on Wednesday, the man can be seen pulling up behind a police cruiser parked at a Cape Coral home owned by Frederic Janke, a sergeant with the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

The song "Rich Girl" by Hall & Oates can be heard blaring from the man's vehicle as he climbs atop the cruiser and begins gyrating to the 1970s Billboard Top 40 hit.

The song was followed by Supertramp's "Goodbye Stranger."

"It was an early morning yesterday
I was up before the dawn
And I really have enjoyed my stay
But I must be moving on"

"Apparently when [redacted] is no longer entertained by his own dancing, he moves to the hood of the vehicle, and immediately rips the windshield wipers backward breaking one of the lever arms in the process," reads the probable cause affidavit.

Police said the man then crossed the street, grabbed an American flag from a neighboring home, and waved it around before he was taken into custody.

The case became increasingly bizarre when police questioned the man about his actions.

According to the affidavit, he said he was prompted to break out into his dance after he was scared away from his home by a "woman with fangs."

The man allegedly said the woman "was threatening him" and he believed a "human sacrifice was about to occur involving vampires."

The fanged woman's actions caused him to seek out "the Sheriff of Nottingham to help him stop the slaughter of small children," police said.

The man, who remains incarcerated in the Lee County Jail, is expected to appear in court later this month.

Authorities have yet to locate the vampire woman who was allegedly harassing him.
