Man Infamous for Dancing on Patrol Car Arrested in Hernando County, Held on $25,000 Bond

SPRING HILL –  In 2015, then-44-year-old Christian Kenneth Radecki made national headlines after he danced atop a Lee County patrol car. The incident was captured on surveillance video and broadcast on numerous media outlets around the country. But Radecki has a long history of arrests, including a 1993 sexual assault conviction out of Middlesex New Jersey.

According to officials with the State Attorney’s Office, Radecki has failed to register numerous times as a sex offender and has several arrests for theft, solicitation of prostitution, and vagrancy related charges.

On Monday, Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the Winn Dixie at Spring Hill Drive and Mariner Blvd, after management called to report that they wished to have Radecki trespassed from the property. Deputies made contact with Radecki and issued a trespass warning but he still refused to leave. After several failed attempts, Radecki stated, “Take me to jail.” And that’s’ exactly what Deputies proceeded to do.Radecki is charged with trespassing and was held on a $1,000 bond, however, during a first appearance hearing with Judge Kristie Ruppe, Radecki’s bond was increased to $25,000 bond.

  • He never said one word in first appearance so the judge made the recommendation of representing him self and when she asked him questions he said nothing

  • Christian Radecki is my brother. He is a very sick man. He is bipolar and has schizophrenia. Fact : He was a nineteen yr old senior in high school when he met a fourteen year old freshman in high school. Fact: He owns his home. He has paid it off in full. Fact: He has a nineteen yr old son, a mother and a sister who pray every day that he does not go off of his meds bc this is the result. You have no idea how so very sad we are, it is very difficult to get help for someone in his state of mind. He told the Judge he wants to represent himself. He is refusing to take meds and they cannot force him. He is that sick he doesn’t know how to help himself. We have DFC involved we are hoping they can help us. Oh and to Lena W you can go to hell !! If there is someone out there that can help us please please contact us.

    • Lisa, this is so very sad, Having known people with these problem, it is so very hard on the loved ones. Is there any way you can talk to the judge and make her aware of his mental health issues.?? I am not saying lock him up, maybe she can order him to take his meds under someone’s guidance? Unfortunately people don’t know or understand mental illness. If they telll them they have heart problems or are diabetic people understand that. When it is mental health they make fun and wish them harm. Really no good mental health help here in this state. I am sorry for your family and for him. Praying right along with your family.

      • Thank you. We have hired an attorney once again, but this one specializes in mental health. We tried to Baker act him last Thursday through DCF and the police bc we knew he was off his meds, but when they went to his home he refused to go and he was not breaking any laws so they couldn’t take him. Thank you again

  • Dave Gaskins…figure it out stupid. The Judge could clearly see there is something really wrong with this guy, and given his priors, along with NOT reporting his addresses as a sexual offender, she clearly made the RIGHT choice in upping his bond. She wasn’t going to take any chances of him fleeing and eluding again. DUH!
    Tom, he’s an ass, ignore him…smh.

  • I laughed way too hard at him dancing

  • This man obviously has some serious mental issues. Though I must admit, with no disrespect to the Lee County Sheriffs office, my stomach hurts from cracking up laughing to the point of tears. I hope this man gets the help he so desperately needs. Agreed he needs to off the streets! Cry for help.

  • Idiots like this should just be euthanized they’re just taking up space

    Tuesday, 31 October 2017, 10:54 pm
  • This begs the question … Why was the bond increased? No details! And you call yourself a reporter!

    • How about you just stop going on this site than jack ass

      Wednesday, 1 November 2017, 10:29 am
  • THAT should keep him off the streets for awhile. but that’s probably exactly what he wanted, a nice warm place to spend the winter with 3 hots (or lukewarm) and a cot. At tax payers expense.

    • that was my exact thought…
