This story is not necessarily one of terrorism but rather the shenanigans of a disturbed man, 33-year-old Larry D. Buchanan from Gary, Indiana. He took out his frustrations inside Majestic Star Casino, which not only scared staff and gamblers but also gave them a quite an eye full.
At around 10am on Thursday July 7th, Buchanan suddenly lit a one dollar bill on fire at casino and headed toward the Craps tables while proclaiming his affiliation with ISIS.
According to the security cameras, the 33-year-old frightened staff who were shown running from the scene. He was found shirtless with his pants pulled down while yelling that he was going to meet his God.
He also told casino security that they were about to see the strength of God. Buchanan has a tattoo on his back of an AK-47 rifle and initials, which he says represent an assassin.
He was arrested this week and held in Lake County Jail facing three counts of intimidation, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.
It turns out that the source of his outburst was related to his brother being fired from the casino and the current conditions his mother, who is also employed by Majestic Star, is working in.
Buchanan also faces a Level 6 felony charge for the previous harassment of his ex-wife’s grandmother, a retired civilian employee for Indiana State Police, via Facebook message. According to an affidavit, Buchanan accused her a being involved in the Illuminati and referred to her as a snitch.
The affidavit also revealed a message sent on July 7th that said, “Her life is over because of christ jesus not because of me. She followed her master instead of her families spirits from the Ancient God”.
