Smoothie Shop Owner Makes Ranting Facebook Video During Police Standoff [VIDEO]
Thursday night, Tai Nguyen, the owner of the Smoothie World in Lafayette, La. was taken into custody after locking himself inside the store for over an hour.
Lafayette Police say he was armed with a knife and there were hostages, but Nguyen let them go before locking himself inside.
While Nguyen was inside, he made a Facebook video. He went on a rant for minutes, acting as if he was invincible by saying “I’m superhuman” and “I am the One.” He told his viewers “join me my people. We will be saved. We don’t have to live like this.”
Nguyen also kept showing the police outside, calling them “the devil” and saying that they tried to shoot him with “a stun gun or something.” He said “they were trying to kill me.”
