Police: Man 'wanted to go to jail'

BRADENTON, Fla., July 5 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man who told a deputy he "wanted to go to jail" caused $800 worth of damage to a patrol car.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said the man approached a deputy outside the Bradenton office of the department and told her he "wanted to go to jail," the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

The report said the man, later identified as Shakeem Fleming, 20, put his hands behind his back and told the deputy he did not have any ID.

A second deputy arrived and Fleming then climbed onto the hood of the patrol car and jumped up and down, causing about $800 worth of damage to the vehicle, officers said.

"Are you going to arrest me now?" the report quotes him as asking.

Fleming, who was found to be carrying his birth certificate and Social Security card, was placed under arrest.

Fleming told the deputies he wanted to go to jail because he "had something to do," but did not elaborate, the report said.
