A Schuylkill County man is facing a number of charges after he recently spent a night in Mahanoy City yelling outside a house.

Police say that back on July 22, 49-year-old Brendon Hasara claimed he was God who feared a killer robot and that someone named “Kenny Smith” was a drug-pushing devil who controlled people with his phone and had the ability to dispatch killer dogs.

Got all that? But that’s not all …

God is a Schuylkill County Man Who Fears Killer Dogs and Robots

According to court papers obtained by The Canary, Mahanoy City PD responded to a 9-1-1 caller saying that Hasara, listed as homeless, was outside her home “yelling and screaming.”

Police arrived on the scene to find Hasara a few houses away from where he was reportedly getting loud along E. Pine St. in the borough.

Hasara allegedly told police that “Kenny Smith” is giving out “the drug” and that we’re all on the drug. He said the people who called 9-1-1 on him came here 2,000 years ago in the middle of the night. And he said that “Kenny Smith” is the devil and controls all of us “with his phone through a computer”. He also said “Kenny Smith” is a robot.

So, a robot devil that may have come here 2,000 years ago who gives everyone the drug and controls us all with his phone through a computer …

Police say Hasara also told them, “I’m God and you know I’m God.” And he also reportedly said that his girlfriend has been dead for about a year. Mahanoy PD Officer Thomas Rentschler said in his affidavit that that’s not true.

After listening to Hasara ramble on for a while, at least enough to get the skinny on Kenny, Rentschler reports he told Hasara that he’d take him back to the police station “for his safety and the safety of others.”

Rentschler says he tried to pat down Hasara looking for weapons. While he was doing that, he says Hasara also informed him that this “Kenny Smith” also possessed killer dogs “and other statements that clearly did not make any sense.”

Police then attempted to arrest Hasara and place his hands in cuffs. As Rentschler did this, Hasara turned around and tried to get away. Rentschler says he then took Hasara down to ground. And that’s when Mahanoy City PD Officer Jordan Smith got involved, trying to help Rentschler. Rentschler told Smith to tase him. But Hasara tried to grab the tasing device from Smith’s hand.

Eventually, Smith got it back and delivered a tase to Hasara. He also apparently got Rentschler, too. But the officers were able to get Hasara under control, at least for the time being. Once they got them in the back of a police cruiser, Hasara reportedly kept screaming and trying to kick out the vehicle’s windows.

At some point, during the trip to the police station, Hasara was able to get his cuffed hands from behind his back to his front side. He tried to run but didn’t get anywhere. Hasara didn’t want to go inside the station because he said the robot was going to kill him. Police say Hasara tried kicking them so they took him down once more and placed leg restraints on him.

Back at the police station, Hasara kept kicking, yelling and screaming nonsense, police say.

Police took Hasara to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Pottsville for evaluation. The hospital apparently let him go following a medical evaluation because at about 1 a.m., police in Saint Clair called Mahanoy City to say that Hasara walked from the hospital to their station. Mahanoy City PD told Saint Clair PD to take him into custody and he was eventually picked up by the original arresting officers.

Hasara was sent to Schuylkill County Prison on $25,000 bail. He’s due in District Court on Aug. 5 for a preliminary hearing to answer charges which include a felony for disarming a police officer.
