ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There are new indications that something has gone very wrong with a former New Mexico high school football star Ronnie Daniels Jr.
Daniels was arrested over the weekend , accused of breaking into someone's home and taking a bath. Now, there are new pictures and video of Daniels allegedly trespassing at another home, showcasing some bizarre behavior.
Neighbors along a northeast Albuquerque block says that on Saturday, Daniels trespassed into a random backyard. According to an Albuquerque Police report, the trespassing happened a home on R.C. Gorman Avenue NE near Daniels home.
The trespassing was caught on camera and the pictures were distributed to entire neighborhood. A concerned neighbor spoke to KRQE News 13 about it over the phone.
"He had two women's purses with pans, dishware set out on their table that he had carried into the yard, and he was experimenting or making something," said the neighbor.
The pictures show Daniels heavily dressed with multiple layers of clothing and with all of his stuff placed out on a table.
The man who took the pictures apparently told Daniels that he had called police, but Daniels appeared unfazed.
"He took a good 15-20 minutes before packing up theses purses," said the neighbor.
Eventually, the neighbor who saw it all happen recorded a video of Daniels hopping over a concrete wall dividing several homes in the area. Police arrived on scene around 35 minutes after the initial 911 call, but by that point, Daniels was gone.
"The response time was so long, it's unfortunate because he could have been taken in that first time on Saturday and the following events would have never had to happen," said the neighbor.
The next day, Sunday, police followed up on the trespassing call because of several neighbors' request. According to dispatch logs, an officer contacted Daniels at his home. Daniels told the officer "that the birds and animals told him to go over the fence."
According to neighbors, police told them they would not press charges. However, while police were speaking to neighbors, Daniels allegedly ran to a nearby home and tried to get in the garage.
Neighbors say the homeowner chased Daniels off the property. Daniels was then arrested an hour later, accused of breaking into the home where he was taking a bath. Neighbors say they're concerned for not only their safety but Daniels' as well.
"Everyone's on high alert; they're nervous. They're heart goes out for this family," said a neighbor. "They want this kid to get help for whatever his issue is, but at the same time, we're very scared that after not one incident, or two incidents, but on the third incident that's what it took to get something to happen and for this individual to be brought into custody."
Even though there were photos showing Daniels trespassing, neighbors say police declined to press charges because it was a trespassing issue that was a day old and that Daniels did not break anything, steal anything or try to enter the actual home.
News 13 tried speaking with Daniel's grandfather Tuesday, but he had no comment. According to police dispatch logs, his grandfather is trying to get an "emergency order" in order to get Daniels psychiatric help.
