Well, if he's NOT crazy...

...then he sure is stupid for picking the absolute worst time to take a high-speed drive through an airport fence--Man crashes through Fla. airport fence

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — A driver believed to be mentally ill crashed through a fence and led police on a high-speed chase around a runway, endangering passengers on two planes, authorities said.

The car crashed through a perimeter security gate and onto a runway at Southwest Florida International Airport, came close to a Southwest Airlines plane that was taking off Tuesday night and sped under the wing of another plane preparing to depart, authorities said. [...]

The chase began when a Lee County sheriff's deputy showed up at 34-yer-old [sic] Jack J. Brems' Fort Myers home on a disturbance call. A port authority officer picked up the chase after Brems' car crashed through the airport security gate. [...]

Brems' former father-in-law, Dennis Mucerino, said Brems had been treated for mental illness and had recently started referring to himself as Jesus.

"He kept preaching the Bible," said Mucerino, who lives two doors down from Brems in San Carlos Park. "He was coming down to my house. He wouldn't stop talking. You couldn't get a word in. I told him to go away because I didn't like dealing with him." [...]

Just a tip here, folks, but if one of your family members starts getting all Messianic on you, don't let him have the car keys.
