Police say the man in those images is Micah Bennett, 26, who is facing charges related to that incident.

When officers arrived, they found an arsenal of weapons and ammo in Bennett’s vehicle.

The incident caused mass panic at the Jaguar dealership on Friday.

People and employees were running and taking cover because the front of the building is made of glass.

Naples Police released pictures of Bennett at the dealership.

Police say he had 14 handguns, three assault rifles, an ammo box with more than 20 pounds of ammunition, brass knuckles, and a bulletproof vest.

Naples police say people were in fear for their lives.

“At one point, he displayed a rifle, he was marching north and south through the parking lot with a rifle, at one point he concealed himself using a camouflage tarp over his head so that he couldn’t see out of it and then again was acting erratically talking to patrons and employees while holding a rifle, pointing it up in the air,” said Bryan McGinn, with the Naples Police Department.

Naples police say Bennett was in the Fort Myers area visiting a family member, but they do not know why he was in Naples.

Police say they later learned from Bennett’s mother that he is diagnosed bipolar and has been Baker Acted previously.
