Crazy Gary Hardy full of piss and vinegar after naked act of aggression on cops and vehicle
NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – Norfolk Police report that shortly after 3:00 p.m. on August 20, 2017, police were called to the 2800 block of Park Crescent for a vandalism that just occurred. When police arrived, they located broken glass and a vandalized vehicle, but the suspect had fled the scene prior to their arrival.
Shortly thereafter, police located the suspect who was disrobed and profusely bleeding, walking in the roadway along the 300 block of Campostella Road. As an officer attempted to take him into custody, the man punched the officer in the face, causing a severe laceration. After refusing police orders to get on the ground, an officer deployed a department-issued Taser and was able to take the man into custody without further incident.
The man, Gary J. Hardy, 36, of the 2300 block of Wyoming Avenue, was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for evaluation and treatment of the injuries caused by the vandalism. He was charged with one count Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, one count of Vandalism, one count of Possession of Narcotics, one count of Disorderly Conduct and one count of Indecent Exposure.
The officer was taken to the hospital and treated for a non-life-threatening injury. No other officers were injured during the incident.
Hardy again assaulted two police officers by throwing urine on them and began vandalizing the hospital room
While at the hospital on August 21, 2017, Hardy again assaulted two police officers by throwing urine on them and began vandalizing the hospital room. As police were restraining Hardy, he bit one officer causing a non-life-threatening injury. Shortly thereafter, Hardy was restrained and the incident concluded.
As a result of the second incident, Hardy was charged with two additional counts of Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, one count Felony Vandalism, one count of Obstruction of Justice, and one count of Disorderly Conduct.
Both officers assaulted in the second incident were treated at the hospital and released.
Hardy remains hospitalized.
Hardy was charged by Norfolk Police Officer B. C. Kubik with possession of a firearm by a felon, discharging a firearm near a school, on Jan. 15, 2014 in Norfolk District Court. When his case got to the Norfolk City Circuit Court on Dec. 4, 2015, nearly a year after his arrest, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity.
On June 16, 2016, Hardy was charged with animal violations and found not guilty by reason of insanity on May 9, 2017. Court records do not reveal where he was committed to an insane asylum or simply set loose in Norfolk, which many consider to be a large group of insane people not presently committed behind protective barriers.
