The "Florida Behaving Badly" Thread
 
Might as well create this to put all our wonderful stores from the Phallic State.
I ran across this today and it made me laugh.


A Jacksonville, Florida couple just got into some serious drama over Alanis Morissette's music: Allen Casey, 24, hit his 33-year-old boyfriend, Todd Fletcher, after Fletcher allegedly refused to listen to anything but the Canadian chanteuse. Only listening to Alanis Morissettte really takes remembering the 90's to a whole new level. And c'mon, how did Tori Amos not make the playlist at least once?

Casey apparently hit Fletcher in the face with a (jagged little) plate and Fletcher had a big gash to prove it. When a cop approached Casey in a nearby park, he admitted to it.

An all-Alanis day really shouldn't be that annoying. Think of the vocal range! It would be kind of like working in a younger dentist's office all of the time. Sounds retty tolerable? As Alanis says, "You live you learn, You love you learn, You cry you learn, You lose you learn, You bleed you learn, You scream you learn." You just don't hit your boyfriend in the face with a plate. But, you learn.

Lawsuit accuses cops of rough treatment, leaving woman half naked during Leesburg Bikefest


By Eloísa Ruano González, Orlando Sentinel

5:53 p.m. EDT, October 10, 2012

An Ocala woman who was arrested on charges of being drunk and disorderly during Leesburg's Bikefest last year filed a lawsuit this week accusing law-enforcement officials of knocking out her front teeth and leaving her half-naked for thousands to see.

Ashleigh Davis, 32, was arguing with a friend's boyfriend when Leesburg police officers and Lake County deputy sheriffs asked her and the friend to leave, said Stan Plappert, Davis' attorney. When she refused, Plappert said the officers tackled and "hog-tied" her, handcuffing her hands and feet behind her back.

"During the tackle, her bikini top came off," the Ocala attorney said.
With her breasts exposed, Davis was carried off in a golf cart through the crowded festival and taken to the police station, where she remained topless for at least two hours, Plappert said. The booking-room video camera captured the topless woman lying on the concrete floor, surrounding by male officers.

Davis, who is studying to be a nurse, was still half-naked when she was transported to the Lake County Jail in Tavares, he added.
"The way she was treated was despicable," Plappert said. "It was inhumane."

On Tuesday, she filed the suit in Marion County against the two agencies, alleging officers and deputies used excessive force and humiliated her. She accused them of groping, manhandling and gawking at her in the lawsuit, which named 11 law-enforcement officials, including Lake County K-9 Deputy Sheriff Richard Sylvester.

He shot and killed Andrew Lee Scott in July after the Leesburg man answered his door holding a gun when deputies on the hunt for an attempted-murder suspect mistakenly knocked on it. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement found the shooting was justified.

Davis said in a complaint to Leesburg police that an officer also put his hand over her mouth to try to get her to stop screaming but knocked her head to the ground when she bit him and broke three of her teeth.

"[He] said 'now you will fit in just right…' after I was screaming about him busting my teeth out," she said.

The department looked into the complaint, filed days after the April 9, 2011, arrest. However, the allegations of excessive use of force by officers were "unfounded," Leesburg police Maj. Steve Rockefeller said in the report. He said officers did not "direct" Davis to the ground and that she and her friend were "continuously resisting deputies and officers throughout the arrest and attempts of booking."

Davis never filed a complaint with the Lake County Sheriff's Office, spokesman Lt. John Herrell said.

"Therefore, no investigation was conducted."

Herrell said he could not comment further because the lawsuit is pending.

Gross.


He says that he's made plenty of mistakes in his life -- this might be the biggest.

Police arrested Benjamin Ashauer on Thursday morning in Tampa, Fla., accusing him of looking at child pornography while seated on a bench outside a strip mall, ABC News reports.

A shopper reportedly noticed Ashauer viewing children in various sexual situations on his computer at about 9:30 a.m. The shopper led police to the 29-year-old suspect, and they asked him if they could see his laptop. Ashauer agreed, and detectives found a "substantial" amount of graphic files depicting children from infancy to about 12 years old.

They discovered enough materials to charge Ashauer with 50 counts of child pornography possession.

Investigators said Ashauer was using a site like "the Napster of child porn," where predators can share and download pictures. He was allegedly using several Wi-Fi connections at the strip mall to access the Internet, Bay News 9 reports. Many child predators use open Wi-Fi signals to avoid detection of their home IP address, officers said.

On his Facebook page, Ashauer regularly asks for forgiveness and admits making mistakes, but does not specifically reference the child porn allegations.

"I love God, I have made a lot of mistake [sic] in my life," he wrote on Oct. 11. "I'm not perfect person."

Jacksonville father catches peeping Tom, police say

Jacksonville father finally nabs peeping Tom, police say
A Jacksonville man told police his family had spotted someone looking through the windows of their home on several occasions, at times finding damage to window screens afterward.

Sunday police received a call from the man's 15-year-old daughter who said her father was restraining a man in their yard.

"The victim told me she was seated in the living room when she saw a sillhouette outside the back window," the officer said in the report.

The girl told her father, who then confronted the suspect outside.

When police arrived at the home in the 6000 block of Forest Stump Lane, they found the father holding James K. Lowery, 60, on the ground in the backyard.

"The suspect had minor injuries due to the complainant confronting him," police said.

According to property records, Lowery is a neighbor of the family.

Lowery, chief engineer at WJXT TV-4, had no explanation as to what he was doing in the yard, but admitted to getting there under his own power even after drinking "an entire bottle of wine," police said.

He has been charged with trespassing with intent to commit an offense, public intoxication and resisting an officer without violence, according to the Duval County jail website.

What happened to just date raping?


A Florida woman who celebrated her 21st birthday last week by going out with a man she met through a series of texts ended up getting carjacked by her date following a romantic walk on the beach.

Nimeha Milien says she hadn't met 19-year-old Donald McGee Jr. of Hollywood before they went out for the first time last Friday evening, but the two had texted back and forth several times prior to their date.

According to Milien, McGee was a perfect gentleman — right up until the carjacking, that is.

The two spent some time walking and talking at Ocean Inlet Park in Palm Beach County, before ending the night in the parking lot of a Wendy's on Boynton Beach Boulevard.

After telling Milien he was waiting for his brother to come pick him up, McGee suddenly produced a .380-caliber Kel Tec handgun and pointed it at the woman's face.

McGee then ordered Milien out of the car, and proceeded to drive away.

Milien ran to a nearby gas station and asked a patron to phone 911.

Boynton Beach police officers pursued McGee for some eight miles along Interstate 95 before he lost control of the car and ended up by the side of the road.

After a brief attempt to flee, McGee was arrested and charged with armed carjacking, robbery with a firearm, possession of marijuana, driving without a license, and fleeing police.

He reportedly told the cops he needed to "get out of the area," but wouldn't elaborate.

As for Milien, she says she's done with dating for a while, but is mostly just happy to be alive.

"I'm glad that I'm alive to be able to see my 21st birthday because I want to be able to make a difference in this world," she told WPBF News. "If I had died on that night, I wouldn't have done anything."

Withdrawal Scam At Local Walmart



Press Release: Marianna Police Department

On 04-10-2013 a senior citizen, who is a resident of Marianna, was approached in Walmart by an unidentified black female. The unknown suspect proceeded to convince the victim that she had $43,000 dollars in a bag, and that she was looking for a trustworthy bank where she could deposit her money. The suspect asked where the victim banked and then offered her $300.00 dollars to demonstrate how easy it was to get her own money out before she opened an account herself. The victim agreed and took the suspect to Wells Fargo Bank in Marianna.

The suspect went into the bank with the victim where the victim took out $1500.00 dollars from her own account in demonstration of how easy it was to get her money out. The suspect and victim got back into the victim’s vehicle where the victim placed her $1500.00 dollars between the vehicles front seats.

The suspect instructed the victim to drive her to the Winn Dixie where they met with another older black female friend of the suspect. While there the second suspect got in the vehicle with victim and the first suspect. The first suspect asked the victim to hold on to her wrapped up bag supposedly containing $43,000 dollars while the two suspects went to visit with someone in a bad neighborhood. The victim agreed giving the suspects her phone number so they could call her when they were done and retrieve their money and pay her the promised $300.00 dollars.

The victim drove to her house while the suspects seemingly went into the Winn Dixie. When the victim drove into her drive way she discovered her $1,500.00 dollars was missing from between the seats. She also discovered that the bag containing the $43,000 dollars was in fact filled with rolled up banded newspapers. The victim went to her bank to report the scam and was advised to file a police report.

During the course of the investigation a subpoena was sent to Wells Fargo Bank to obtain the best quality photo of the suspect. The Marianna Police Department is asking the public to help in identifying suspect one depicted in the attached photograph from the banks security camera while she was in the bank with the victim.

If anyone has any information that might help in identifying this suspect please call the Marianna Police Department at 850-526-3125 or Crime Stoppers at 850-526-5000.

(CBS News) JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Florida woman who fired warning shots against her allegedly abusive husband has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville had said the state's "Stand Your Ground" law should apply to her because she was defending herself against her allegedly abusive husband when she fired warning shots inside her home in August 2010. She told police it was to escape a brutal beating by her husband, against whom she had already taken out a protective order.

CBS Affiliate WETV reports that Circuit Court Judge James Daniel handed down the sentence Friday.

Under Florida's mandatory minimum sentencing requirements Alexander could receive a lesser sentence, even though she has never been in trouble with the law before. Judge Daniel said the law did not allow for extenuating or mitigating circumstances to reduce the sentence below the 20-year minimum.

"I really was crying in there," Marissa's 11-year-old daughter told WETV. "I didn't want to cry in court, but I just really feel hurt. I don't think this should have been happening."

Alexander was convicted of attempted murder after she rejected a plea deal for a three-year prison sentence. She said she did not believe she did anything wrong.

She was recently denied a new trial after appealing to the judge to reconsider her case based on Florida's controversial "Stand Your Ground" law. The law states that the victim of a crime does not have to attempt to run for safety and can immediately retaliate in self-defense.

Alexander's attorney said she was clearly defending herself and should not have to spend the next two decades behind bars.

Alexander's case has drawn support from domestic abuse advocates - and comparison to the case of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who has claimed a "Stand Your Ground" defense in his fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

A Dunkin’ Donuts worker was beaten and pistol-whipped Tuesday by a Florida couple enraged over a botched coffee order, police report.

The 1 PM melee at the Lauderhill eatery resulted in the arrest of Jeffrey Wright, 27, for aggravated battery, a felony. Alexis Longo, Wright’s 22-year-old wife, was charged with misdemeanor battery.

According to a Lauderhill Police Department report, the couple placed a drive-thru order that they later discovered contained the wrong coffee. Longo wanted her java with vanilla. Instead she got caramel.

So the pair parked their vehicle and went inside the restaurant to speak with a manager. Before that could occur, the pair got into an argument with the worker who had handled their order. Matters quickly escalated and Wright and Longo allegedly began assaulting the employee.

During the brawl, Wright, a security guard, repeatedly struck the victim in the head with a loaded Taurus Slim 9mm handgun (which he is licensed to carry). Store surveillance video shows Wright pummeling the worker while Longo gets in a few blows.

A family in Tampa, Florida got more than they bargained for when they decided on the ribeye from their local Wal-Mart: A healthy dose of LSD. From ABC:

The family of four was sickened Monday night and did not initially know what caused the “mysterious illness,” but the county medical examiner’s office determined it was the psychedelic drug, officials said.

“It is still under investigation how the drug ended up in the family’s meal,” according to the police statement. “At this point, it is not clear if a crime has occurred.”

The woman, Jessica Rosado, 31, was nine months pregnant and doctors induced labor, authorities said.

Rosado gave birth to a healthy baby boy and released from the hospital Thursday.

Her boyfriend, Ronnie Morales, 24, along with Rosado’s two children — Elyana Serrano, 7, and Rayna Serrano, 6 — also fell ill and started experiencing hallucinations. All three received tracheal intubation and have since been released from the hospital.

Police said the ribeye steak came from a Walmart store. It appears to be an isolated incident and the store is cooperating with officials, police said.

HIGH SCHOOL??!!


Florida porn actor returning to high school classes

COCOA, Fla. — An 18-year-old high school senior at the center of a dispute over his appearance on a gay pornography website will return Wednesday to Cocoa High.

A Brevard Schools decision banning him from classes catapulted Robert Marucci into the international spotlight last week; however, the district Tuesday said the teen would be allowed to return to class.

"I'm just ready to return to school, like a normal day," he said Tuesday.

Marucci, who became 18 in June, told WKMG-TV, Orlando, that he believes he was kicked out of class more than a week ago because of his after-school job as a porn model.

He said he was trying to pay the bills for his family, but other students found his work and he became a target for bullies.

Man accused of trying to steal TV from Wal-Mart

By Carlos E. Medina
Correspondent
Published: Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 7:29 p.m.
Last Modified: Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 7:29 p.m.

A 32-year-old man reportedly tried to walk out of a Wal-Mart with a large-screen television on Friday afternoon. After he was stopped by store security, the man reportedly walked to a store display and started eating chicken, according to an arrest report.

Authorities say Travis Ryan Royal of Dunnellon was seen dragging a 48-inch, flat-screen television toward the front door of the Wal-Mart at 9570 SW State Road 200 just before 2 p.m. Friday. When stopped, he told store employees he had paid for the item and needed the security tag taken off, according to Marion County Sheriff’s Office reports.

Royal, who was reportedly heavily intoxicated, then wandered over to a display holding fried chicken and ate $3.67 worth of food, reports state.

When asked where he was going with the television, Royal said he was going to take it to a restaurant inside the store to watch the “Dukes of Hazzard,” according to reports.

Royal was booked into the Marion County Jail on one count of grand theft. He was being held Saturday evening in lieu of a $25,000 bond.
