Security footage released by prosecutors on Wednesday shows the shootout between a former porn star and cops that occurred earlier this year in Miami.

On May 18, 2018, Jonathan Oddi, a former adult film actor, broke into the Trump National Doral Miami resort and began pacing, barefoot, in the lobby. Witnesses to the event said Oddi was “making disparaging remarks about” President Donald Trump, according to NBC.

Oddi, 42 can be seen in the footage dragging a large American flag with him and holding a gun. He unfurls the flag on the resort’s concierge desk and angrily shoves a cannister off the end of the desk.

The footage then shows him leaning against that desk and putting on socks before spreading out the flag and attempting to reach the security camera. Oddi unfurls the flag some more and smashes the resort’s front desk computers before police arrive outside.

At first, Oddi puts the gun down and puts his arms in the air, but then picks the gun up and begins shooting at the officers, using the desk as cover. After some back-and-forth shooting, Oddi takes off into the hotel, still firing. He briefly slips on the hotel’s floors as officers pursue. He then runs up a flight of stairs and knocks over some furniture before an officer is able to arrest him.

Oddi was charged with “attempted murder of law enforcement officers, armed burglary, and armed grand theft,” according to NBC. He was hospitalized after the incident with wounds to his legs.

Oddi’s attorney, Christopher M. DeCoste, told NBC the video clearly shows a man suffering from a “mental breakdown.”

"A breakdown further evidenced in body-cam footage later at the hospital. It can also be seen with a quick look into his eyes in his booking photograph," DeCoste said in a statement. "A defendant can be found not guilty by reason of insanity. This evidence could support such a finding. This end would not result in outright release, but rather intensive and clearly necessary treatment.”

The Miami Herald reports that Oddi “is a self-described fitness instructor, real estate investor and manager at Pegasus, a business dealing in minerals and gemstones.” He also was a stripper for a South Florida website “that produced videos of raucous staged parties involving women performing sex acts on male dancers.”

Oddi is currently in jail awaiting trial.

The security footage was released just as pipe bomb-like devices were sent to several prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and former Vice President Joe Biden. Some of the bombs were incapable of causing damage, but did contain some dangerous elements. Police are still looking for suspects in the case. Sources told The New York Times on Thursday that the focus is shifting to southern Florida as the origin site for the bombs. No official motive has been discovered.
