This one actually happens a lot in Florida. My friend works at a restaurant in downtown Fort Lauderdale and has been approached several times by people wishing to pay for their means with pot instead of money. Florida man "with pink eye" tries to use pot to pay at McDonald's drive-thru, gets arrested

I'm kind of laughing because this story is SO Florida I'm not even sure why it's a story:
Police approached the suspect and “noticed a heavy odor of marijuana emitting from the car.” In a search, officers said they found roughly 11 grams of cannabis. Gallagher—named by local media outlets—admitted making the offer but claimed it had been a joke, police added.

In an arrest report obtained by the Miami Herald, one officer noted that Gallagher’s speech was “slurred” and that his movements were “slow and uncoordinated.” His pupils were dilated and he also appeared to have conjunctivitis or “pink eye,” according to the newspaper.

Backing up the official police press release, the report read: “When the subject was advised of the amount of money he owed for his order, he produced a clear plastic bag that contained a green leafy substance and offered to provide him marijuana in exchange for the food.”

Gallagher’s vehicle contained “molded chicken wings” and French fries were spotted on the car's floorboard, police said. When being checked for alcohol, he told cops: “I am not drunk.” At the time of the incident, the suspect had a surfboard poking from the back of his vehicle.

These guys would probably have not been caught except that we've had an unusual amount of rain for the winter season and their tunnel collapsed the street.

Sinkhole that opened up in Florida was actually tunnel leading to a bank

Florida public works employees got more than they bargained for Tuesday night when they were called to investigate a possible sinkhole that had opened up outside a shopping center.

Beneath the hole was a narrow tunnel stretching 50 years from a wooded area towards a branch of Chase Bank. The FBI is now probing the passageway, which contained a power cable, a generator, muddy boots and a small ladder, local station WPLG reported.

"I would like to say I saw something like this in the movies," FBI Special Agent Michael Leverock told reporters Wednesday, per CNN. "However, this hole is so small. It is unique."

Any potential burglars would have to squeeze through a diameter of just two to three feet, Leverock said. “It's very small, it's very claustrophobic," he added. “You would not be afraid of small places for sure if you were doing this."
Gotta love Florida :ROFLMAO:

OMG if when I was growing up they put a person in jail, every time they slapped someone with meat, my Mom would have served a life sentence. I'll never forget the day she was pounding a round steak and my Dad said something that pissed her off. She looked at both hands, the hammer in one and the steak in the other and at that moment, my Dad and I both knew the man was going to be slapped with something .... I'm just glad it was the steak and not the hammer.

He's also had more than one big Mac and even had a plate of spaghetti dripping from his ears. She used to slap him with food so much it became an inside joke with the family at holidays.

Apparently in Florida, Burritos are the states weapons of choice.

Three different and unique instances of assault with a deadly burrito.

If you google Florida man throws, you'll find Pizzas and Alligators are pretty popular weapons too. Imagine being a clerk at Wendy's and having an alligator tossed in your drive through window ... :freakout:

Have you seen a Taco Bell burrito lately? They're no joke! They'll put an eye out. Or blow up a toilet. Or something.

Florida Man arrested for having sex with pit bull in yard as neighbors pleaded with him to stop

Officers found Marsonek, a convicted felon, inside his home and spoke with him before obtaining a search warrant for the property.

Inside they seized a gun with ammunition and animal services took custody of eight large pit bulls found at the home, Fox13 reported.

He was arrested on two counts of a felon in possession of a firearm, animal cruelty and sexual activity involving animals.

Florida - land of good ole Mad-eye Masaad

Mayors having a right 'mare in Florida: Acting mayor arrested weeks after boss also arrested

Not just the mayor was arrested but now his boss has been arrested. This just made me LMAO. This guy belongs at the Villages, not as mayor of Port Richey.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco described him as "a violent drug user who kept weapons in his home" – just who you want in charge of your town.

Indeed, a Tampa 'Times comment piece said of Mad-eye Massad: "He enjoyed intoxicants. He owned guns. He socialized with people of dubious repute," adding that many assumed the mayor's downfall to be "inevitable".

"You guys know I like to party," he reportedly told Port Richey cops in 2015.
:cheers: :ROFLMAO:

In Florida ... not only are Taco Bell tacos used as weapons but their hot sauce is used to save lives! Yeah, another life saved by the "Bell". :cheer:

https://thetakeout.com/taco-bell-hot-sauce-saves-life-car-crash-florida-1833374732

A few weeks ago, we were shocked to hear that a man survived for five days stranded in the snow by eating nothing but Taco Bell hot sauce packets (resulting in his getting Taco Bell free for a year). This started us on the path to thinking that Taco Bell hot sauce was magical. And now, in light of another hot-sauce life-saving measure, we think we may be on to something.

In—happy Monday, everyone—Florida, a man was sitting down at a Taco Bell in Winter Haven when he decided to get up from his seat to procure more hot sauce. Mere seconds later, an elderly man crashed through the front of that Taco Bell with his car, hitting the table where the hot-sauce-retrieving customer had been sitting just moments before.
Check the picture out, we see a lot of that in Florida. Old guys driving cars that hit buildings....
