Man Who Set Himself On Fire Outside Trump Court Has Criminal History

Maxwell Azzarello, the self-described “antifascist researcher” who set himself on fire outside of the New York City courthouse where former President Donald Trump was on trial, has been found to have a criminal history that included disorderly conduct and property damage.

Azzarello, 37, has reportedly been displaying erratic and confusing behavior recently, causing concern from members of his community. In August 2023, the mentally unhinged man was the subject of three different criminal complaints, including an incident on Aug. 19 where he was seen throwing a glass of wine at a framed and autographed picture of President Bill Clinton located in the lobby of the Casa Monica Hotel in his hometown — Saint Augustine, Florida. The wine glass ended up shattering the glass protecting the photograph, staining the image with wine.

Another incident also occurred at that same hotel, where Azzarello was seen “standing outside, stripping his clothes off and yelling at customers.” When police arrived on the scene, they discovered that he was “wearing nothing but his underwear” while standing on the sidewalk screaming with a speaker in his hand that was blaring music.

The third arrest happened on Aug. 24, where Azzarello was taken into custody for vandalizing property with graffiti and rifling through a woman’s belongings in the flatbed of her truck.

Azzarello, who was reportedly unemployed, had just completed a 180-day probation period for these crimes before he decided to set himself on fire outside the Trump trial.

According to his manifesto, however, Azzarello was “an investigative researcher” who had decided to set himself on fire outside of Trump’s trial “to draw attention to an urgent and important discovery” — which he claimed was that “we are victims of a totalitarian con, and our own government (along with many of their allies) is about to hit us with an apocalyptic fascist world coup.”

“These claims sound like fantastical conspiracy theory, but they are not. They are proof of conspiracy,” he added.

Azzarello’s writings showed that he was an unhinged leftist activist, and his social media accounts further proved this — as he posted incoherent screeds and sang songs about starting a revolution.

He also made a post supporting the Oct. 7 terror attacks in Israel, where Hamas terrorists slaughtered more than 1,000 innocent people, injured thousands and kidnapped hundreds.
