Proclaiming ISIS Affiliation Gets Indiana Man Arrested at Majestic Star Casino

Proclaiming ISIS Affiliation Gets Indiana Man Arrested at Majestic Star Casino 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”.
  • This kind of thing is happening more and more at the moment, there seems to be an article in the newspapers every day right now here in England about somebody making a "joke" about ISIS, whether it is being affiliated with them or just shouting "Allahu Akbar" on a plane fill of people "for a laugh". If they don't realise the trouble they are going to get into for these stunts they really deserve all they get.
  • What the heck is this world turning into?! it is just a shame what is happening around the entire world with aholes like isis ruing it for everybody, dont these idiots realize that this is exactly what they are aiming for complete chaos and anarchy. It is people like him that just keeps fueling the fire we are trying to put out what a disgrace he should got jail not a mental ward period!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rose
  • Some people need to stay on their meds. Thank goodness nobody was harmed by this looney bin. Maybe it is the lead in the water that caused his outburst. I mean if one city has lead poisoning, it probably means that there are other cities not far behind slowly poisoning their citizens to the point of insanity.
  • Wow. Just. Wow. Oh, Indiana! LOL
  • Dear oh dear, you have to be seriouly disturbed to even consider making jokes about terrorism related stuff these days and linking yourself to the islamic state has to be the most stupid act of all as far as I can see! And as for lighting your cash on fire... lol, even its just a one dollar note, thats still got to be even more stupid once again! I hope this guy gets the help he needs though as it seems to clear to me he desperately needs some help!
  • Working inpatient Charity Psyche units for 10 years I can tell you this guy is just plain "Crazy" and will wind up in mental hospital for some time. LOL
  • I personally believe that this guy probably is some kind of self-proclaimed assassin and thank God he was stopped before he got started. Very smart to arrest him and not just cart him off to a doctor's appointment. That would've been upsetting to see. I have never seen a serious incident at a casino, and am very glad of that.
  • I tell you that those folks from Indiana are crazy. lol. No but seriously why? i mean you know whats going on in the world today so why scream ISIS. thats just stupid. and why light good money on fire. I mean its just a dollar but id take it and spend it on a large sweet tea from McDonalds. I hope he learns his lesson. and Indiana is no place to be in jail
