Florida Man – Came to the Airport with a Grenade Launcher
Our Florida Man is Tyler Baker, 49-year-old from Tampa Bay who was on his way to fly from Tampa International Airport to Long Beach Airport in Los Angeles last March 6, 2018. As soon as he puts his luggage on the first baggage scanner, airport officials’ attention were caught with so much threat. They spotted a grenade and an unassembled military grade rocket propelled grenade launcher in his bags.
And Baker came with so much confidence and no sign of apprehension considering what’s in his luggage. He was invited for questioning by the TSA immediately, and to check all these items found in his bag. To find out that the device could be assembled using the parts, the launcher was not functional at all and the grenade was only a replica. Baker’s defense was he was self-assured about it because none of it is functional and he is not in any way related to any terrorist group and no criminal records.
All the mentioned device was confiscated by the TSA and airport officials but Baker was allowed to take his flight from Florida to LA. Baker is working on a film as a part of the production design team and it is a part of his job.
Florida Man March 6 – Escaped Ridiculously High Bar Tab
Lakeland, Florida – Sean Wright, 53 years old ended up being arrested for trying to escape a Mexican restaurant last March 6, 2018 after seeing how much his bill was.
Wright was reported to arrive in Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant at 4 o’clock in the afternoon by himself and started his happy hour with a Screwdriver cocktail. But it was just the start of his binge drinking when it was followed with 18 more cocktail drinks within the next 10 hours and a chimichanga for his dinner in between.
Before the closing time, his bill was given to him with the total amount of $ 120 but he refused to pay it, saying that he can’t afford it and only has $ 50 in his pocket.
Restaurant manager had to call he police when Wright was trying to act violently while he is intoxicated. And in his defense, he was stood up by his landlord that was supposed to come to join him and talk about their issues in the rental. And this was denied right away when his landlord was asked for his statement the following day, he said that definitely there was no plan in meeting in a bar with Wright. He also confirms that Wright is drunk most of the time and consistently having delays in his rental payments.
The bar waiter was also suspended in the job for 7 days for not cutting Wright off on his 6th drink and should have probably sense some trouble for he had been giving his drink all throughout the 10 hour stay in the restaurant.
So this Florida Man spent a night in jail over a $ 100 tab.
