Freelance journalist Juan Alberto Vazquez said in an interview in Spanish on Tuesday that Neely – described online as a 30-year-old Michael Jackson impersonator – “started screaming in an aggressive manner.” According to Vazquez, Neely commented that he “didn’t have anything to eat or drink, was tired, and didn’t care if he was going to jail.”

“He starts giving a speech,” Vazquez said. “He started screaming aggressively,” Vazquez told the Post. “He said he had nothing to eat, he hadn’t drunk, he was tired and he didn’t care if he went to jail. He started yelling all those things, took off his jacket, a black jacket he had, and threw it on the ground.”
