A Putnam County man who is accused of making terrorist threats in Kiryas Joel while wearing a bulletproof vest is being held in the Orange County jail on $150,000 cash bail.
30 year old Frank Zebzda was arrested on Friday afternoon, reported News 12. Zebzda, who claimed to be a medical proxy for a Dinev Court resident with cancer, reportedly used obscene language and intimidated children before he was taken away by New York State Police.
Dressed in body armor, a t-shirt and tan baggy shorts, Zebzda was cheerful as he was taken away from his arraignment at the Monroe Town Court telling a reporter who asked him why he was wearing a bulletproof vest that he was legally allowed to according to the second amendment. As he was being herded back into a squad car, Zebzda called out “I love America,” to reporters, smiling and waving gleefully at news cameras and announcing “Look out for KJ, they’re corrupt.”
