This happened last weekend, on Friday, October 28, 2022 at the Jaguar dealership in Naples. Florida Man Micah Weiss Bennett, 26, of Pierson, Florida was arrested by officers from the Naples Police Department. Bennett was charged with four counts of Aggravated Assault. This following an incident that occurred in the front parking lot of the dealership.
Bennett arrived at the dealership and was walking north and south through the parking lot. He wearing a camouflage tarp and eventually retrieved a rifle from his truck. Bennett paraded up and down the front of the dealership armed with the rifle. Then he returned the firearm to his truck, and ‘hid’ under a tarp.  By this time, police had been en-route after receiving calls from employees. As Bennett attempted to leave the dealership, he was stopped by officers. He was taken into custody without incident. Bennett’s actions caused well-founded fear among employees and patrons of the business and prompted them to seek immediate safety. Perhaps the safety of a luxurious new Land Rover?
Chief Weschler stated: “The subject was heavily armed and prepared to cause havoc in our community. Thanks to the public’s awareness and quick notification to the police department, as well as our officers’ rapid response, a potentially catastrophic event was averted.”

Florida Man was heavily armed

In addition to the criminal charges, a temporary Risk Protection Order was requested by the Naples Police Department and granted. An inventory of Bennett’s vehicle revealed him to be in possession of fourteen (14!) handguns, three (3) rifles, brass knuckles. He also had a bullet proof vest, a toolbox weighing approximately 77 lbs. filled with handgun ammunition, and an ammunition cannister weighing approximately 28 lbs. filled with rifle ammunition.

Not sure what this Florida Man was planning to do in Naples. And why at the Jaguar dealer? I reached out to someone I know at the dealership but he was on vacation and missed it.
