Ghost Bust-Up: Paranormal Spook Hunters Are Ruining Our Village Girasol_Monge/ Pixabay

A man in Florida who was pulled over by cops for driving a vehicle with two missing tires gave a pretty peculiar reason to justify his actions to law enforcement. Andres Orjuela-Montealegre, 29, told police officers in the early morning of Oct. 23, that his car was cursed.

The driver was stopped at the Interstate 75 ramp near Marion Oaks around 4 a.m. Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said they first noticed the car’s hazard lights were on and realized it was rolling on two tires as the other two tires on the driver’s side were running flat. However, upon closer inspection of the vehicle, the driver was actually cruising with two missing tires and grinding the road on what remained of the rim, Miami Herald reported.

When cops asked Orjuela-Montealegre about the damage to his vehicle, the driver told the deputy that someone put a curse on him and that the missing tires were because he hit a curb too hard. The man continued on to tell his tale to the officers saying he was given a choice to “do” or “die” wherein he was made to either drive home with only two tires or set his car on fire.

Soon as the cops heard his side of the story, they asked the driver to step out of the car and perform a sobriety test. Orjuela-Montealegre appeared wobbly on his feet and began cursing and insulting the deputy. He claimed that the damage to his car was caused by “paranormal activity” as someone had put a curse on him yet proceeded to threaten the officers.

"If you mess with me right now, let me tell you something, I'm going to break your head with a baseball bat," he said.

"I'm going to ... skin you alive."

As both deputies searched the driver, the man spat on one of them and continued to curse and threaten. While the deputy who got spat on was wiping spit from his face, the driver tried to grab the officer’s taser.

Orjuela-Montealegre was arrested and thrown in jail after refusing to submit to a breath test. He now faces multiple charges and is being detained on a $27,000 bond. Should he be found guilty, he faces up to 25 years in prison.
