  • Florida- 27th state of the United States, with  a population of 21.48 million. It's nickname is  

  • the Sunshine State, but in truth, Florida is far  more popular for the insanity of its inhabitants  

  • than for its warm sunlit beaches. Odds are even  if you aren't from the United States, you've heard  

  • your fair share of insane Florida Man storiesand we've done our best to round up some of the  

  • truly craziest examples of why Florida should  maybe be turned into a giant alligator preserve.

  • Florida Man Doesn't Get StrawAttacks McDonald's Employee

  • In 2018 most of the world woke up to the humongous  waste of plastic that is drinking straws,  

  • and decided that enough sea turtles had been  murdered in their name. Plastic drinking straw  

  • bans went into effect across the United Stateswith various levels of enforcement. In Florida,  

  • the law required individuals to ask forstraw, but when Daniel Taylor went to reach  

  • for a straw in the condiment bar, he flew intorage upon discovering there were none to be had.

  • An employee explained that customers now had  to ask for straws, only for Taylor to respond  

  • by grabbing the employee by the shirt  and dragging her onto the counter.  

  • After getting punched in the face, Taylor  left the restaurant, only to return later  

  • and make his displeasure over the new straw law  known by kicking an employee in the stomach.

  • Taylor would go on to get arrested and  charged with two counts of battery.

  • Florida Man Wears F The Cops  Shirt To Court, Wins Case

  • In 2014 a Florida man was pulled over byState Trooper and ticketed for a sticker that  

  • the trooper claims was obstructing  view of the license plate. The man  

  • claimed that he was simply being harassed  for recording cops forcing people to move  

  • their parked cars at a popular pullover  spot by Highway 27 for no good reason.

  • The man fought his ticket as he had  promised the issuing officer that he'd do,  

  • but turned heads when he showed  up to court with a t-shirt reading  

  • F The Police- with the entire F word spelled outIncredibly the judge ruled in favor of the man,  

  • stating that the cops had not met the  burden of proof required to ticket the man.

  • Florida Man Uses Private Plane  To Draw Giant Penis On Radar

  • This next story is pretty self-explanatoryAviation fans checking the website FlightRadar24,  

  • where civilians can track the flight  paths of airplanes all over the world,  

  • were shocked to discover a pilot in a private  plane flying a track that on radar looked like  

  • a giant penis. Some speculated that it  all might have been a giant coincidence,  

  • but the track is far too perfectlypenis for it to be anything but purposeful

  • Florida Man Charged With Assault  With Deadly Weapon After Throwing  

  • Alligator Through Wendy's Drive-Thru Window

  • Ok, here's another one that's pretty  self-explanatory. In 2016 Joshua  

  • James found an alligator on the side of the road,  

  • because Florida is basically the Australia  of the United States only less dangerous.  

  • Apparently unhappy with his drive-thru  experience at a local Wendy's, James made his  

  • displeasure known by throwing the live alligator  through the window and into the restaurant.

  • After being arrested, James was charged with  aggravated assault with a deadly weapon-  

  • the weapon being of course the  airborne alligator. He also picked  

  • up lesser charges for illegally killingpossessing, or capturing an alligator,  

  • as well as second-degree larceny petit  theft for the soft drink he didn't pay for.

  • After a court appearance, James was told to limit  his contact with animals to his mother's dog,  

  • undergo a mental health evaluationand avoid possessing any weapons.  

  • To include other throwable  reptiles we're assuming.

  • Floridians Warned Not To  Shoot Guns At Hurricane Irma

  • It started as a joke on Facebook, a public event  

  • asking people to shoot their guns at hurricane  Irma in order to stop the storm in its tracks.  

  • The event drew so much attention from all  across the state however that authorities  

  • felt a desperate need to step in and beg  people to act sane for a change. The Pasco  

  • County Sheriff's office was forced to tweet  the following: “To clarify, DO NOT shoot  

  • weapons at Irma. You won't make it turn around  and it will have very dangerous side effects.”

  • We get that the whole thing  had become a viral joke,  

  • but just how bad is Florida's science  education that a Sheriff's department  

  • felt the need to explain that bullets  don't make hurricanes turn around?

  • Florida Man Wears Clear Plastic  Bag As Disguise To Rob Gamestop

  • Ok, this next one proves that even if you  don't live in Florida, you're not safe from  

  • Florida Man. In 2018 Kerry Hammond crossed the  Georgia border and attempted to rob a Gamestop.  

  • How did he disguise his identity in order to  pull off the crime of the century? Hammond  

  • decided to throw a plastic water bottle wrapper  over his head and call it a day. The best part:  

  • he wore it so that his face was looking out  through the clear sides of the packaging,  

  • giving security camerasperfect shot of his face.

  • Needless to say Hammond was  arrested shortly after his theft. (

  • Florida Man Arrested For Breaking  Into Jail To Hangout With Friends

  • Friends are a great thing, we here at  the infographics consider all of you  

  • our friends. If you get thrown in jail and expect  us to miss you bad enough to come break you out,  

  • you can forget about it though.

  • Perhaps feeling the spirit of the  season, 24 year old Patrick Rempe  

  • just wanted to visit with his friends for the  holidays- forget trying to break them out,  

  • Rempe just wanted to hang out. When he was  refused entry at the main door, Rempe rammed  

  • his car into it repeatedly, and failing thatdecided to climb one of two exterior fences

  • Upon reaching the top of the fence thoughRempe became entangled in the barbed wire,  

  • and as officers dragged him down- very painfully  we might add- Rempe decided to thank them by  

  • getting into a fistfight. Rempe ultimately would  get his wish as he was charged with aggravated  

  • assault and battery on a law enforcement officerthree counts of felony criminal mischief, leaving  

  • the scene of a crash with property damage, and  surprise surprise, driving under the influence.

  • What influence though? Well, turns out  Rempe was motivated less by holiday  

  • spirit and more by the synthetic and  extremely dangerous drug, Flakka.

  • Florida Man Denies Drinking While  Driving, Says Only Drank At Stop Signs

  • By now we've established that Florida is basically  

  • the United State's alcoholic uncle  with an undiagnosed mental disorder.  

  • At least when America's drunk uncle  imbibes, he does so responsibly though.

  • After hitting the bumper of the lady in front  of him at a McDonald's drive-thru several times,  

  • police pulled over Earle Gustavas Stevens  on suspicion of drunk driving. Police found  

  • Stevens marinating in liquor, with a bottle of Jim  Beam sitting next to him on the passenger's seat.  

  • As he was being arrested for drunk drivingStevens protested that he had in fact  

  • not been drinking and driving, as he had only  drunk his Jim Beam at red lights and stop signs.

  • Despite Steven's obvious concern  for the letter of the law,  

  • he was inevitably arrested and charged with a DUI.

  • Florida Man Arrested After Assaulting  Girlfriend With Cooked Chicken

  • In 2018 23 year old Juwan Brown got into a fight  with his live-in girlfriend. In the heat of the  

  • moment, Brown stepped on his girlfriend's foot  on purpose, prompting her to push him away. In  

  • retaliation, Brown turned to the only weapon  within reach- a piece of cooked chicken. The  

  • thrown piece of chicken hit the girlfriend on  the face, and shortly after police were called.

  • Brown would be freed on bond and ordered  to have no contact with the defendant,  

  • but our favorite part of this  story- other than, you know,  

  • assault with chicken- is the statement  that police released after the incident:  

  • We do not have information on the way  the piece of chicken was prepared.”

  • Oh Florida, never stop being you.

  • Florida Man With No Arms Stabs Tourist

  • In 2018 Jonathan Crenshaw, a homeless man with  no arms known for his artwork that he creates  

  • with his feet, was approached by 22-year  old Cesar Coronado. Details are sketchy,  

  • with both Coronado and his girlfriend claiming  that upon stopping to ask Crenshaw for directions,  

  • Coronado was immediately stabbed withpair of scissors held in Crenshaw's feet.

  • For his part, Crenshaw denies  that he instigated the incident,  

  • instead claiming that Coronado  had attacked him first. Crenshaw,  

  • who has a violent history with police, was later  arrested and charged with aggravated battery.

  • Florida Man Arrested For  Practicing Karate On Swans

  • At 9:30 AM on April 26th, 2018, Rocco Joseph  Mantella was spotted by witnesses engaging  

  • in an early morning workout. As an avid karate  fan, Mantella began his morning workout routine  

  • by chasing swans and then kicking them in the  face. A witness would claim that he spotted  

  • Mantella practicing karate by kicking one swan  in the head, and then another on the butt.

  • It seems that when he ran out of swans to  spar with, Mantella turned his attention onto  

  • a sleeping duck, which he also karate kickedPolice were promptly called and perhaps most  

  • surprisingly of all, Mantella was arrested and  found to not be under the influence of any drugs,  

  • though he was charged with cruelty to animals.

  • Florida Man Attacks Homeless  Man, Tries To Eat His Face

  • It was the zombie-like attack that  kicked off the bath salts global scare,  

  • and where else would it have happened but  Florida? No, seriously, this is the only  

  • place where this level of insanity could  have possibly manifested and warned the  

  • world of a new drug craze that threatened  to turn its users into cannibal zombies.

  • On the morning of May 26th, 2012, 31 year old Rudy  Eugene was driving into Miami Beach for the Urban  

  • Beach Week festival when his car broke down. After  spending a half hour by his disabled vehicle,  

  • Eugene ditched the car and walked along  the highway on foot. Apparently high on  

  • numerous unidentified substances- the only  positive identification being marijuana-  

  • Eugene began to remove his clothing as  he walked, eventually ending up naked  

  • save for his shoes and a bible. The bible  and shoes however would quickly be discarded,  

  • and shortly afterwards Eugene ran into  65 year old homeless man Ronald Poppo.

  • According to Poppo, Eugene was friendly at first,  

  • knowing Poppo from the work that he had done  with the homeless community earlier that year.  

  • However, the now naked Eugene suddenly  accused Poppo of having stolen his bible  

  • and launched a vicious attack against himIn the course of the attack Eugene would tear  

  • off Poppos pants and then proceed to gouge out  his eyes and bite off 75-80% of Poppo's face.

  • Upon being warned by police to stop his attackEugene simply growled at the responding officer  

  • and began to bite at Poppo again, continuing his  attack even after being shot. Eventually after  

  • being shot four more times the police were  able to pull Eugene off the mangled Poppo.

  • A toxicology report revealed very little  other than marijuana in Eugene's system,  

  • though a prominent toxicologist warned that  the test administered wasn't looking for very  

  • many potential drugs that Eugene could have  been imbibing. With the zombie-like psychotic  

  • behavior reminiscent of individuals high  on bath salts, it's thought that this may  

  • have been behind Eugene's psychotic  break and subsequent cannibal attack.

  • Either way if it was going to happen anywhereit was definitely going to be in Florida.

  • And there you have it, a definite list of  all the reasons that Florida is America's  

  • mentally deranged alcoholic unclesuper fun to hear stories about,  

  • but an absolute nightmare at family  gatherings. And presidential elections.

  • Now watch insane ways people have faked their  own death, or check out this other video instead!
