‘You’re going to have to kill me,’ man yells in courtroom escape attempt




It took seven deputies to tackle a man in a Manatee County courtroom Wednesday following an attempted escape after he was sentenced to nearly a year in jail for a felony animal cruelty conviction.

Anthony Kidd, 23, leaped over into the courtroom galley and stood on a bench as five deputies surrounded him, a red dot shining on his stomach as a deputy pointed a Taser.:p

“Do it. You’re going to have to kill me,” Kidd screamed. He ignored repeated commands to “get on the ground” even after he jumped back to the front of the courtroom. Deputies told the judge to leave the courtroom.

Deputies closed in on Kidd, but he slipped away, making it only to the other side of the room before seven deputies took him to the ground.

Kidd continued to resist as more deputies arrived to assist.

“They broke my arm,” Kidd yelled.:) A deputy barked back: “Stop resisting.”

Kidd, who pleaded no contest in September to a felony animal abuse charge for causing his girlfriend’s dog, named Prince, to suffer a broken tooth, bloody nose and swollen eye, was sentenced to 364 days jail followed by four years probation.

Kidd immediately pleaded to Circuit Judge Hunter Carroll to reconsider, begging that he needed to be with his kids.

“I am dying,” Kidd said after having previously testified he had cancer.:D “I am begging you for my life.”

Carroll listened but said the court would not change it’s ruling.

Kidd had also been ordered to pay a $2,500 fine, submit to anger management treatment and have no possession, care or custody of domestic animals during his probation period.
