Florida Man March 8, 2019 – Crashed the Wrong House while Crashing from Meth
LAKE COUNTY, Fla.- This Florida Man is 40-year-old Craig McDonald. He is now remaining behind bars after he was caught sleeping inside somebody’s else house.
The homeowner, Michelle Oakley told Wesh-TV that McDonald just came into her house casually and crashed on the first couch as he entered the doorway without even knocking or buzzing. “I said ‘excuse me, do you belong here? Where are you supposed to be? You are in the wrong house dude”.
Deputies responded to the complaint and arrived at the house. While they were trying to wake up McDonald, he kicked one of them and punch the other deputy. Deputies had to use a taser on him before arresting him. He is now facing charges of trespassing and battery of an officer on a $51,000 bond.
Florida Man March 8, 2020 – Punches an Old Lady Who Gave Him a Middle Finger
This Florida Man is a retired police officer from Cape Coral. He has now been arrested for admitting to punching an old woman inside a store.
According to his statement in the police report, 73-year-old Gary Chapman and a 64-year-old lady named Barbara Reynolds first crossed paths in the parking lot of Publix store on Hancock Bridge Highway. It was 12:40 PM, Reynolds was stopped and waiting for a free parking space. Chapman began honking loudly and annoyingly coming from behind. Reynolds didn’t like it so she just threw her middle finger in the air for Chapman as his car passed by.
To her surprise, while Reynolds was already inside the store and already fallen in line in the pharmacy to fill up her prescription when Chapman was already approaching and yelling at her. She identified him to be the man in the car and so she yelled back and gave him the middle finger again.
Chapman got really pissed that she raised her hand to him and so he slugged her in the face. He stated also that he was caught in a very bad day and frustrated not to have a private time with his wife when all this happened.
He also refused to be handcuffed so an officer had to put him to the ground and take him to custody. His mug shot would be exempted from Florida statute F.S.S. 119.071 because he is a retired police officer.
Chapman was released on a bond but Reynolds is still serious on pressing charges.
