10 Florida man arrested after tantrum over bacon
Have you ever seen someone get arrested because they threw a tantrum over bacon? Yeah, that’s probably not an uncommon scenario when you go to Florida. When Cape Coral police received calls saying there was a “disturbance,” they responded quickly. Arriving at the Waffle House (where else could he be?), they saw a shirtless man yelling at the employees for the way they cooked his bacon.
The man is currently in jail and is charged with intoxication and resisting arrest. Although it’s a bit strange to get busted for bacon, it’s also surely a lesson learned: don’t let bacon make you nervous!
9 The Crossbow Fiasco
It’s not all the time you hear about stolen crossbows – they’re hard to hide and could even hurt you while you’re on the run from the authorities. However, that’s not entirely the case for Florida’s Darren Durrant. Although he was able to leave the store undetected, they were able to trace that he was the one who stole the crossbow.
The crazy part? In fact, she kept it inside his pants. Yeah, you didn’t misread that part. A crossbow in his pants, talk about a fiasco indeed. Even if he was in danger of injury from the way he hid such an item, Durrant and his shenanigans have definitely shown us that you can actually hide a crossbow inside your pants! He went undetected (the crutch was a nice touch), but he was seen in a restaurant parking lot, where he even tried to run from the police. However, the attempt was unsuccessful, as he was arrested and imprisoned.

Larry Gardner was confronted by a neighbor when he was banging on a sliding glass door at another person’s home. The neighbor confronted Gardner, who threatened to kill him.
Gardner eventually dropped the bar, but picked up a metal pipe near the house and continued to threaten his neighbor. After finally being accosted by two Good Samaritans, the police arrived and Gardner was arrested for assault and armed robbery. Definitely not something you would expect on a Monday night.

In honor of his late grandmother, whom he also viewed as his number one fan, he wanted to be the record holder after losing the title in 2021. With that, this man spent over $3,400 watching Spider-Man: No Way Home 292 times. Yes, 292 times.
Not only that, but since the registration requirements state that you must watch this movie without doing anything else, like using your phone, going to the bathroom, or even sleeping, it’s safe to say that Alanis may have already memorized the dialogue. and the script. That’s a lot, just to have that title.
Although it took him roughly 720 hours (that’s 30 days) to watch the movie 292 times while juggling his personal life and work commitments, he was actually very successful in achieving this groundbreaking and amazing world record. Would you also do something like this?

While it wasn’t a new car, he had just gotten it at auction and paid a whopping $704,000 for it.
When asked by authorities why this happened, he was apparently unfamiliar with how the gear stick works. However, authorities later found out that Guarini actually had a suspended license and did not even have the registration or insurance for the car he purchased. Not only was his car damaged and crashed, but he was also ticketed for driving with a suspended license and not having his car registered or insured!

1 man in Florida pays rent to a fake landlord
There’s nothing better than the frustration of having to pay rent on a monthly basis, especially if the cost is high, right? However, what if you find out that you have been paying rent to someone who is not even the landlord? This is what happened to Isaac Aviles, a 19 year old who was scammed by what appeared to be a fake home owner!
It was only three months later that she found out that the man she had been paying $1200 a month to was a rental scammer! She never met the alleged landlord and only spoke to him on the phone. The 3-bedroom house in Orlando seemed like a good deal, too good, since the actual rent on the house is double what Aviles was paying. Since real estate scams are common in Florida and elsewhere, he definitely needs to be careful because he could be the next victim.
