JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- While waiting for the judge to set his bail Wednesday afternoon, Zeljko Causevic seemed calm.
But Action News learned some people closest to him were questioning his behavior in recent days.
"I hope he gets the help he needs," said Causevic's next-door neighbor, Bella, who didn't want to release her last name. "It's not the same person I knew for 10 years," she said.
The Causevics' neighbors on Miata Court in Jacksonville's Southside said the man now charged with possessing a hoax bomb and making a false report about planting explosives at the airport was a good neighbor until recent marital troubles. Bella said Causevic's wife seemed worried in the hours before Tuesday's bomb hoax.
"She came over to the house and said he was acting kind of psychotic. He took her phone and left and she didn't know what he was going to do," said Bella. A short time later, the Causevics' home was being swarmed by police and the airport was shut down for five hours due to a bomb scare.
