The five-week standoff at an Oregon wildlife refuge took a bizarre turn after one of the four remaining occupier released a video taunting the FBI.
In one video, David Fry, a 27-year-old dental assistant from Cincinnati takes a joy ride in a U.S. government vehicle, challenging the feds to charge him with theft, The Washington Post reports.
“You see this? It’s a U.S. government vehicle,” he says, filming himself getting into a pickup truck with federal plates. “I think I want to take it on a little joy ride. You know? Yeah. Let’s start this baby up. Now you’ve got another charge on me, FBI. I am driving your vehicle.”
In another video, husband-and-wife due, Sean and Sandy Anderson, claim they are “hostages” for missing a deadline to leave the refuge unscathed.
“Here we sit as hostages because we didn’t hear about a deal that everyone else got to leave,” Sean Anderson says in the video. “They either let us go, drop all charges because we’re good people, or they come in and kill us. How’s that going to sit with America?”
