Florida Man January 2, 2022 – The Electric Scooter Rider
It’s not the Grim Reaper; it’s a Florida man with a knife on an electric scooter!
According to the Rockledge Police Department, a 74-year-old man was suspected of chasing two people with a knife; while he was riding an electric scooter.
According to an arrest document, Daniel Zarelli pulled an 8-inch blade from a drawer in his home Monday evening and “aggressively followed” a woman throughout the residence in his scooter after a verbal disagreement.
Zarelli’s claimed threats to kill the woman caused her to flee the house, according to police.
According to police, Zarelli slashed the car’s left rear tire “with intentional and malicious purpose,” incurring $500 in damage.
When police arrived, Zarelli still had the knife in his hand and was “actively chasing” a woman up the driveway. Officers said they could smell alcohol on Zarelli’s breath and overheard him say that he wanted to stab the person he was after “when he had the chance.” This is what Zarelli said in his confession.
Brevard County Jail arrested Zarrelli on various charges; including two felonies for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He has a $26,000 jail bond. They scheduled him to appear in court on February 1.
