August 17th, 2020: Florida Man Arrested in Missing Woman Case
A Florida Man was arrested in Fort Lauderdale by Federal Agents on August 17th, 2020. It was not publicly stated what the man was being arrested for but based on the federal investigation that Florida Man was involved in, it is likely he was arrested in the case of a missing woman from earlier in the year, a case where he was the last person to report seeing the woman. Just hours after he reported seeing the woman, her toddler was found alone outside of her apartment complex.
If Florida Man is truly responsible for the missing woman, why is he reporting to be the last one to see her?
August 17th, 2018: Florida Man and the Fart Spray
A Florida Man was pulled over in an unregistered vehicle in Manatee County on August 17th, 2018. During the traffic stop Florida Man’s purse (yes, purse) was searched. Inside the purse, law enforcement found two cans of fart spray along with two cans of pepper spray.
Police took the fart spray into custody for “safekeeping.” We don’t quite know why though as they never released a public statement on what Florida Man was intending to do with the spray but we are curious as to why he had two cans.
The only charges that were pressed on Florida Man were for the registration and he made bale quite quickly on a bond of only $120. We also don’t know if Florida Man got his fart spray back after.
August 17th, 2017: Florida Man and the McDonalds Ice Cream Machine
Most of us have tried to go to McDonalds and get ice cream or a milkshake only for the staff to tell us the machine isn’t working. This can be quite frustrating because in many cases we go to McDonalds just for the milkshake and/or ice cream. Most of us don’t go full Florida Man on the clerks though.
In response to being told that the Delray Beach McDonald’s ice cream machine was broken, Florida Man decided it would be a good idea to enter the establishment with his AK-47 style rifle out.
Luckily for everyone he didn’t try to hurt anyone but the employees did seek cover in the bathroom. Florida Man was arrested for his crimes and from everything we could find, Florida Man did not end up getting his ice cream that day.
August 17th, 2020: A Good Host
During a traffic stop for not wearing a seatbelt, Florida Man was caught trying to be a good party host. The car was found to contain $20,000 worth of marijuana products, including vape cartridges, marijuana, THC pills, and THC gummies. When asked why he had all of this on him, he said he wanted to be a good party host when he got to Daytona Beach to party with some girls.
With the amount of drugs he had on him, that must have been quite the party that he was planning. And by some girls we are pretty sure he meant the whole beach.
What were Florida Man’s charges? He had 12 counts of distribution of marijuana, 1 count of intent to sell, 4 counts of possession, and 4 counts of having drug equipment. We assume he was also charged for not wearing his seatbelt but that wasn’t quite clear in the stories we were able to find. Florida Man’s bond was $44,500 but based on how much he spent on marijuana, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that he made that bail.
Take a look at all of these Florida Man stories from August 17th and you will get a good idea of just how crazy he can be. What do you think about your birthday now? We hope we didn’t ruin it for you. If you want to hear more of what Florida Man has done in history, make sure to look at some of the other days in history for more stories.
