Palm Beach Police say a man who who drove a Ferrari into the Palm Beach Inlet last December did so because he claimed "Jesus told me to..."
James Mucciaccio, 48, was removing items from his Ferrari while parked on a public dock Dec. 26 when an officer approached him, asking what he was doing. He told the officer that a friend of his told him to park on the dock so he could be picked up by boat.
When the officer told him he couldn't park there, Mucciaccio apologized, and retreated to the vehicle to retrieve his driver's license.
In dash cam video of the incident, Mucciaccio can be seen getting into his car, reversing briefly, until he puts the sports car into drive and hits the gas, sending the vehicle into the water.
Two fisherman in a nearby boat who witnessed the scene, jumped into the water and rescued the driver.
When officers asked Mucciaccio why he decided to drive into the water, he said that Jesus told him he needed to drive through the small gate on the dock and into a "6-foot window."
"Jesus made me the smartest man on earth and it's so hard to have this much responsibility," he told officers. "Money is going to be irrelevant in two days, remember to smile."
WATCH: Dash cam video shows man driving #Ferrari into the intracoastal. Sources say this was a "medical" call, but we are still waiting on the official crash report from @PalmBeachPolice. Looks like there is more to this story... @WPTV pic.twitter.com/ZJrCD635N8 Merris Badcock (@MerrisBadcock) December 28, 2018
Mucciaccio also told officer that he drove into the water because he believed the officer on the dock was Egyptian and did not believe in Jesus.
Mucciaccio was not injured in the incident.
Divers were able to attach inflatable "lift bags" and raise the Ferrari to the surface where it was towed back on shore. Investigators say, in a further twist, the license plate that was attached to the Ferrari, actually belonged to Mucciaccio's Ford Mustang.
Google "Florida Man" and your birthday and see what comes up!...................
That wasn’t Jesus.
Jesus walked on the water, and he could drive a Ferrari across it too.
Florida Man on the other hand...
Do you ever watch Live PD? For some reason Florida has some of the strangest criminal cases in the country and also a lot of methed up red necks.
We had a local video taped live Cop Show here called ‘Blue Lights’.
Saw one of my coworkers get arrested on it once..................
just like the Hebrew National adverts,
he “obeys a higher authority”
now all he has to do is produce Jesus as his defense witness in court,.. and
he could beat this ticket!
No, Jesus “I walk on water”. I’m sorta sure He didn’t say “walk on water”...
Wait, maybe it was a “Jesus” who swam across the Rio Grande last summer.
