Court documents obtained by NBC12 show how Brandon Raub's friends and mental health professionals view his mental state.
A mental health evaluation reports Raub suffers from "delusions," is "paranoid," and has "poor judgement." However, during his appeals hearing Thursday, a judge ordered Raub's release because of botched paperwork.
On this same mental health report, it notes that friends reported Raub to the FBI because his behavior had become more extreme, he was posting extreme conspiracy theories on Facebook and threats to President Bush. His friends also reported that Raub's recent behavior was "not him."
When the social worker asked Raub why the authorities were involved in his case, Raub said, "because they know I am on to them."
While Raub is described as cooperative, he didn't want to answer further questions.
A second evaluation has labeled boxes to correlate with Raub's thought process. The boxes that are checked are "delusions," "grandiose" and "paranoid." It also labels his judgement as "poor."
While the social worker wanted Raub to undergo further evaluation, a judge ordered his released Thursday because the paper work that would keep Raub in the hospital - a petition for involuntary commitment - wasn't filled out properly.
The judge said he had to let Raub go because there was nothing keeping him detained.
Still, Raub's family and lawyers maintain the 26-year-old marine isn't a threat.
"You can call for a downfall of government," said Tony Troy, one of Raub's lawyers. "You may not want to join in but people have a Constitutional right to call for a change in government."
The Chesterfield County spokesman did not comment on why the paperwork was filed incorrectly.
