Naked man dies after tossing rocks at windows of homes

Posted: Updated:

PERDIDO KEY, Fla. (AP) - A naked, one-legged man collapsed and died after throwing bricks and other objects at the windows of several Perdido Key homes.

Authorities say the incident happened late Monday in the neighborhood near Pensacola.

The Pensacola News-Journal reports neighbors saw 55-year-old Norbert Chabannes crawling across a yard. They told deputies he cut his arm while unsuccessfully trying to break into his next door neighbor's house. That's when he crawled across the street and threw a cinder block at a home.

An Escambia County Sheriff's deputy found him delirious in the front yard. The deputy says Chabannes collapsed while he was trying to reason with him.

Rescue crews tried to resuscitate him.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating because Chabannes died while involved in a confrontation with a deputy.
