Life is just as crazy here!

CAR CRITTER

My Crazy Florida Life now includes this. Look closely at the photo (below), that’s not a mechanic under that hood. Here in Florida, folks often leave their cars down south for months while they live up north. Friends start their cars, drive them occasionally. My friend was trying to charge a friend’s car battery when he noticed a possum nest under the hood. This included one annoyed possum. I was loo2016-10-09-19-19-41aking forthe nest and nearly got my face nipped by the little guy curled up on the air filter. Lucky for me the critter politely hissed at me first. That’s when I took this shot.

 

TAKING HOGFISH

News alert – You might need to know that Florida now only allows the taking of one Hogfish per day in season. The article does not say where you are suppose to take it.

OVER THE RIVER AND THROUGH THE WOODS

Florida Woman Creates Her Own Half-Marathon Course

Perhaps the first time you run a half-marathon it should not be in the woods on unfamiliar trails. Perhaps when she noticed there were no other runners she should have stopped runners. Perhaps when she finally found a jeep trail, she should not have assumed that this was the very same trail on her race course. She didn’t make those decisions and so, when the race coordinator’s worst nightmare came true (missing runner) they began the search and located the lost runner, missing for 12 hours . The runner “ended running over 16 miles before the park’s department located her in the reserve about 7:30 p.m.” Half marathon = 13 miles. Go her, she did it in only 12 hours. I wonder how many years she took off the race director’s life?

Alligator Luring – Yup, it’s a real thing!

Two men in Palm Beach knew it was illegal to lure and capture an alligator but they did it for a very important reason. They wanted to post the photos on Social Media. That made it a lot easier to catch them and charge them and much, much harder for the pair to deny allegations.
Leave the ‘gators alone – folks. They bite.

I would have lead with Gun and Handcuffs in purse!

Why did they bury the lead? “Troopers said they found multiple Florida driver’s licenses in her purse, and loaded guns and handcuffs in her car.”

Bad Dog — WORSE NEIGHBORS

A Key West woman learned that it is illegal to use a stun-gun to quiet your neighbor’s barking dog.  The suspect said she had only threatened the dog which begs the question, then why did the dog have blisters on his skin?  Mrs. Gulch from The Wizard of Oz has nothing on this gal.  Any you thought your neighbors were terrible.

November’s Cray Cray Crime

Eye-Spy With My Little Eye

I didn’t actually know this was a crime, but apparently it is illegal to remove detachable body-parts and hurl them at medical staff as Largo, Florida man discovered when he removed his glass eye and chucked it at ER staff after he was released for booking on a domestic battery charge. He allegedly took this action after police warned him not to throw his eye. This isn’t something you think you would need to be warned not to do…but, so is domestic battery. Now the Largo man has also been charged with battery of a medical care provider. I’m sure that the police will be keeping an eye on this guy.
Summary: Refrain from throwing glass eyeballs in hospitals.

Purple Pooch

An Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts man allegedly stole a car, crashed the car, broke into and vandalized a home, stole pills, credit cards, a driver’s license and painted the family dog purple.
He was apprehended and found to be in possession of alcohol and pills when arrested and, oh yes, he was a minor. His parents must be so proud. He also was in possession of paint. You already know the color.
The vandal was charged with breaking and entering, larceny, destruction of property, possession, assault and battery on a police officer and, you know what else–cruelty to animals.

Kit Kat Klepto

This might be too much for some of you but a thief broke into an unlocked car and took just one of the owners possessions – but it was precious, indeed. The note written on a napkin that may or may not have come from inside the vandalized auto was shown in a photo and tweet by @jabbins and it read:
“Saw Kit Kat in your cup holder. I love Kit Kats so I checked your door and it was unlocked. Did not take anything other than the Kit-Kat. I am sorry and hungry.”
This sort of crime must stop. Everyone out there – take note and take precautions to secure and protect your chocolate!

Reported by Huffington Post about a tweet from @jabbins (Hunter Jobbins).

Candy Repair Man

A Winter Haven restaurant is short one gumball machine after a “repair man” took the machine outside to be serviced on 11/4/16 and then drove away. This gumball machine had a racing-theme and $800 worth of gumballs! Police are seeking information on anyone who has recently been diagnosed with diabetes and/or rapid-onset tooth decay.
Summary: Gumball machines hold $800 worth of candy!

NO, I DID NOT MAKE THIS UP — MULLET TOSS IN THE PANHANDLE

Did you know they have a Mullet Toss competition down here where people pay $15 to throw a dead mullet from #Florida over the state line into #Alabama? It’s true and looks like quite a party. I’m looking forward to visiting the #Panhandle.

POKEMON CATCH = POLICE ARREST

FL Tuesday again and it includes a #PokemonGo tip. When the police ask you to leave a closed park at night, you should probably power down. Here’s a clip from First Coast News, July 22, 2016″
“Police tase Florida man after refusing to leave park while playing Pokémon GO”

“Tampa, FL – Just when you thought you had heard the craziest story about people playing Pokémon GO, there’s this.

At 10:30 p.m. Thursday night officers responded to Ballast Point Park in response to a complaint of trespassers in the park after closing time. When officers arrived they observed about 150 people still in the park playing the virtual game Pokémon GO.”
All but one left when directed. The one who did not got tased.

#CrayCrayCrime – October 2016 What have you done?

Cray Cray Crime

Every Saturday I feature what I call #CrayCrayCrime on my Facebook page– crime from around the world that stuns, amuses or leaves me scratching my head.  I feature all four posts on my blog.  So here is the month of October 2016, three posts for the weeks I’ve been featuring this topic.

Not Your Typical Church Service

Sadly a Florida Church has lost its tax-exempt status because the Tabernacle, as it is called, was operating what is known as a night club.  Way to capitalized on Spring Break traffic in a creative and not entirely legal operation.  The specific event that tipped the legal scales and earned the attention of law enforcement was called Amnesia which involved naked paint parties.

I have a strong feeling that spring break will be a treasure trove for #CrayCrayCrime

Home Made Bikini is a Clear Violation

A 59 year old New Jersey man was arrested in Beach Haven, NJ for crafting a homemade bikini from clear plastic wrap.  Police did not appreciate the man’s crafty skills and charged him with lewdness.  You can’t make this up.  Blame it on the heat?  #CrayCrayCrime

You Broke it, You Bought it

No use crying over spilled milk.  But one hapless shopper from across the pond managed to knock over two huge flatscreen TVs one into the next.  This turn of events so shocked the London shopper, he backed up into two other flatscreen televisions.  Crash.  Crash.  Two becomes four and the final tab was over $6000.  Best of all, the entire cataclysm was caught on surveillance camera.  I’m not sure if the ex-customer was charged for the damage or if he was pardoned but you can watch the video here.  No charge.
