A Florida man was arrested last week and a possible catastrophe was averted when police were called to a Jaguar car dealership for a man in a camo tarp with a rifle.
According to police, on Friday, October 28, 2022, at 4:12 pm, Naples Police received a 911 call referencing an armed subject, later identified as Micah Weiss Bennett, 26, walking around the Jaguar Dealership carrying a rifle and wearing a camouflage tarp.
Bennett approached several employees and customers while holding the rifle, which caused mass panic at the dealership. Employees and customers ran from the dealership believing their lives were in danger.
Officers arrived on the scene and saw 26-year-old Bennett driving out of the dealership in his truck.
Officers conducted a traffic stop at the dealership and Bennett was taken into custody without incident. Bennett told officers he was being attacked by radiation and made other nonsensical statements.

Detectives attempted to interview Bennett, but he indicated people were following him and declined to be interviewed further.
Bennett was charged with four counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
Bennett’s mother was contacted and advised her son was diagnosed as bipolar and was previously placed into protective custody under the Baker Act.
Bennett traveled from Pierson, Florida to visit his aunt in Fort Myers, Florida, but it’s unknown why he went to the Jaguar Dealership.
Police found 14 handguns, 3 rifles, brass knuckles, a large amount of ammunition, and a bullet-proof vest in Bennett’s vehicle.
The investigation is ongoing, and a Risk Protection Order (RPO) will be filed by Naples Police Detectives.
