In general, driving without tires is a bad idea. It's bad for your wheel, and it spoils the road. If you're missing two tires, it's even worse. But what if you were cursed and you need to escape to a safe place? Of course, that's a reasonable excuse, isn't it? It turns out, at least in Florida, this is not the case.

The Miami Herald reports that police stopped the driver around 4:00 when they noticed that his car was missing two tires. 

"When the officer asked about the damage to the car, (the driver) stated that someone put a curse on him and that he hit the curb hard."

Calling it a "do-or-die choice," the driver said he had only two options: try to get home or set fire to his car and go to bed. 

"Someone put a curse on me," the driver said. "This is paranormal activity."

For some reason, the officers didn't believe the Florida resident's very reasonable explanation. 

"Suspecting that some kind of alcohol or drugs may be involved in the case, the police asked the 29-year-old driver to take sobriety tests."

From that moment on, the affairs of a man who was just trying to escape from an evil spirit went downhill. He started "spitting at officers, threatening to attack, kicking them and trying to pull a taser from one policeman's holster," and then told them to smash their heads with a baseball bat.

"I'm going to... skin you alive!" — he shouted.

Apparently, the officers did not agree with this behavior and arrested him. He was charged with "beating a law enforcement officer; resisting an officer with violence; attempt to deprive an officer of means of protection or communication; threats against a government employee and drunk driving."

Original news

In general, it’s a bad idea to drive if your car is missing a tire. It’s bad for your wheel, and it tears up the road. If you’re missing two tires, it’s even worse. But what if you’ve been cursed and need to escape to safety? Surely, that’s a reasonable excuse, right? Turns out, at least in Florida, it’s not.

The Miami Herald reports that deputies pulled over a driver around 4:00 a.m. when they noticed his car was missing two tires. “When the deputy asked about the damage to the vehicle, (the driver) stated someone had put a curse on him and that he hit a curb a little hard.”

Calling it a “do or die choice,” the driver claimed he felt he only had two options: try to make it home or set his car on fire and sleep on the median. “Somebody put a curse on me,” the driver said. “That is paranormal activity.”

For some reason, the officers didn’t believe the Florida man’s very reasonable explanation. “Suspecting another kind of spirits may be involved, deputies asked the 29-year-old driver to submit to sobriety tests.”

Things only went downhill from there for the man who was just trying to escape an evil spirit. He began “spitting on deputies, threatening to attack them, kicking them and trying to take one deputy’s taser from its holster,” before telling them, “If you mess with me right now, let me tell you something, I’m going to break your head with a baseball bat. I’m going to … skin you alive.”

Apparently, the deputies took issue with that behaviour and arrested him. He’s been charged with “Two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer; resisting an officer with violence; attempt to deprive an officer of means of protection or communication; corrupt by threat against public servant, and driving under the influence.”

Hopefully, this can serve as a lesson to everyone. If you’ve been cursed and are fleeing obvious paranormal activity, and you happen to destroy your tires in the process, do not attempt to keep driving. Instead, set your car on fire, and sleep on the median.

A hallucination is a form arising in consciousness without external stimulus, i.e. the perception of non-existent real objects (objects and phenomena).

Negative hallucinations represent the opposite-perception of actual objects.

Hallucinations appear as ordinary people in stages of extreme psychological exhaustion in the extreme fatigue, the absence of external stimuli, lack of sleep, high temperature, intoxication, dehydration, etc., and also in the use of alcohol, psychotropic substances, various injuries and diseases, and some mental and neurological diseases.

Deliberate falsification

This version includes any falsifications that imitate unexplained phenomena both from the outside: practical jokes, flash mobs, fake news, witness fraud, staging, etc.

There are many ways to make something similar to a ghost or a flying saucer from improvised materials, without using video and photomontage.

Many homemade things made for the sake of a joke, a practical joke or a direct imitation of a mystical being or event can be taken as unexplained not only in photos and videos, but also in reality.
