A man, who claims to be Jesus, was running around threatening other people with a crowbar.

The Florida man, who claims to be Jesus Christ, chose not to turn the other cheek, and instead, threatened his neighbor with an iron rod, police said.

Kenneth David Peterson, 51, said the neighbor in question is the Antichrist, police said.

Palm Bay police investigated a report of a disturbance between two men on Thursday.

When they arrived, Peterson reportedly professed to be Jesus and threatened the neighbor with the iron rod and another type of weapon.

He was charged with aggravated assault, harassment, and is being held in the Brevard County Jail on bail of $150,000.

The police have made nine visits to his home since February in reports that he was damaging the property of a neighbor.
