A New York man who rammed his Jeep right into a Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) car earlier this month allegedly instructed officers on the scene, “You will die immediately,” and was discovered to have had a “To Kill” listing in his automotive, officers not too long ago introduced.
Skulstad was driving his dark-colored Jeep close to Ossining, N.Y., on April 5 when he allegedly “started honking his horn” on the MTA car in entrance of him, which was marked as an official transportation authority car, in accordance with court docket papers.
Skulstad “accelerated his Jeep and rammed the MTA car from behind” whereas an MTA worker was inside, an FBI agent alleged within the felony criticism. He then allegedly drove alongside the car and repeatedly sideswiped the automotive, finally forcing it off the street.
The 33-year-old Dobbs Ferry man then apparently misplaced management of his personal automotive — driving it onto the sidewalk and into a number of timber earlier than stopping, police stated.
When police arrived on the scene, Skulstad allegedly instructed the primary officer, “I’m Jesus.” As a second officer approached the scene, he instructed the cop: “I’m Jesus Christ! You will die immediately! Are you able to die?” earlier than charging on the police automotive, the felony criticism states.
Officers finally Tasered Skulstad and tackled him to the bottom when the Taser wasn’t sufficient.
However the incident took one other dramatic flip when officers looking Skulstad’s Jeep discovered a shell casing and “a pocket book with a web page entitled, ‘Listing — To Kill,’” the criticism states.
The “To Kill” listing allegedly included “the names of assorted present and former public officers and different public figures,” paperwork state.
“Skulstad’s alleged focusing on of an MTA car, and the next actions he took towards cops who arrived on scene, remind us of the risk our public servants face every day as they uphold their responsibility to guard the communities they serve,” stated FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. from the bureau’s New York workplace.
“Due to the work of the FBI’s JTTFs and our many companions on this case, Skulstad not poses a risk to society or, extra particularly, these he included as targets on his listing.”
