Florida Man Arrested After Throwing Bible at Policeman

    A burglary suspect hit a cop in the face with a Bible, an attack that led to his tasing and arrest on multiple criminal charges, according to a Florida police report.

    As he uncorked the throw, Hoskins “stated something like ‘I condemn you,’” a cop reported. Hoskins was subsequently tased and taken into custody following a brief struggle.

    According to an arrest report, Hoskins’s wife told deputies that he “does have a drug problem.” Which seemed apparent when Hoskins told cops that God had directed him to break into his neighbor’s home and free the victim’s juvenile daughter.


    For once, body cams were turned on and functioning.

    I hope the judge issues the severest penalty allowed by law.

    Maybe the judge could "throw the book at him".

    Mandatory drug rehab and therapy may be more helpful and appropriate in this case.

    Generally, I would agree with these types of cases. There is one disturbing note at the end about the suspect (Florida Man) trying to "rescue" the victim's juvenile daughter making me think he may have also been a sex perv going after the girl.

    I'd have to know a little more before I agree, but funny just the same. :)

    Maybe the Judge will throw the Good Book at him.

    Could be. I guess we should just leave this to the courts in Fla.

    Hopefully at his trial he doesn’t grab the Bible from the Bailiff and hold the court hostage.
