In 2018, Florida's Joker was arrested again and held without bail in Pinellas County. Sullivan claims he missed several court-ordered appointments with his psychiatrist and that's why he was arrested.

“My mom is 70 and has multiple sclerosis, so I don't really work and my dad is 70, so it's hard for me to get money to pay for classes and take an Uber there. So, I didn’t have a ride or money at the time,” Sullivan said. According to him, when he was arrested, he was on his way to see his probation officer and did not know he had a warrant for his arrest and was taken into custody.

Sullivan, who is a tattoo model, said he doesn't mind being known for looking like the "Joker" from DC Comicss.
