A crazed Miami man lost half of his head in a car accident. If that wasn’t bizarre enough, he’s now been arrested for attempted murder after setting his mattress on fire.
Carlos Rodriguez, also known as’Halfy’ to his friends, was recently arrested after allegedly setting his mattress on fire just outside his house.
The 31-year-old, who was clearly missing some common sense, along with the other half of his brain, was charged with attempted murder over his bonfire’s proximity to his neighbors’ home.
According to his arrest report, the blaze posed ‘an immediate threat to the lives and safety of the occupants’ of the nearby duplex.
It’s not yet clear why he set the mattress alight.
Rodriguez was also charged with first-degree arson along with the felony attempted-murder charges.
He had appeared in court Tuesday but the judge ordered the trial reset for Wednesday, concerned that Rodriguez had ‘mental issues.’
Back in 2010, Rodriguez’s naughty claim to fame occurred when he was arrested for soliciting a prostitute. Of course, his unusual mugshots, similar to those above went viral on social media.
Two years later he appeared in a YouTube video to explain why he lacked half of his brain and skull.
‘I was barred out on drugs,’ ‘and I was driving and I hit a pole and flew out the front window and landed on my head.’
After revealing his head to the camera he said: ‘And this is how the old boy has come out. That is why it’s no good drinking and driving or drug-drug- drugness (sic) and driving. No good, kids.’
According to reports, the accident occurred when he was only 14 years of age. Now Rodriguez is being held on $20,000 bail. This poor guy could use some serious help! If he wasn’t such a creep I’d feel sorry for the guy.
