It was about 4 a.m. April 5, and it wasn’t the first time Port St. Lucie police had been to Jesse Little’s home on Southwest Burlington Street.
In fact, an officer reported knowing of the address because of repeated calls regarding Little “constantly drunk in his yard” stirring up trouble with his fiancée and neighbors, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.
Little, 28, hadn’t violated any laws the first time the officer went there, but this time apparently would be different.
Little’s fiancée told police Little damaged the walls of the rental home and took an ax to the landlord’s washer and dryer.
She also said Little kept drinking liquor he took from a neighbor’s residence “and had been yelling curses while walking up and down the street.”
The fiancée reported Little knew police were coming, saying he raced inside to pretend to be asleep.
She pointed out a big ax, an edged implement used by lumberjacks in felling trees, on the garage floor. Police saw holes in the drywall and “heavy denting” on the washer and dryer.
Investigators found Little in bed, where he appeared to be faking slumber.
Described as “obviously intoxicated,” Little said he’d been imbibing all night.
Police took Little to the hospital for medical clearance, where he is quoted as telling an officer, “I’m gonna have the Outlaws pay you a visit. You will be over by morning.”
On the way to jail, Little demanded the officer pull over and let him out.
“If you don’t you’ll be (sexual intercoursed) up by the morning, before you even know it!” the affidavit states.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the officer was “(sexual intercoursed) up by the morning.”
Little, of the 2000 block of Southwest Burlington Street in Port St. Lucie, was arrested on charges including criminal mischief and corruption by threat on a public servant.
