Ezra James spent a night in jail for allegedly burning a raccoon whom he feared was going to bite him and eat his mangos in Palm Bay, Florida.
The 88-year-old man told WKMG what he did to the raccoon:
I throw some gasoline on him and I light a match.
James said his neighbor, a “wicked woman,” called 911 on him:
My business is my business. I don’t take my business to strangers.
Palm Bay police said an officer had to shoot the raccoon to put it out of its misery.
