Floridaman carjacked an elderly man, deputies say. But they say he couldn't drive a stick shift

(CNN) - A man was arrested in Florida after sheriff's deputies say he tried to steal a car from an elderly man in Orlando.

The reason he was unsuccessful? He didn't appear to know how to drive a stick shift, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The incident occurred Tuesday when an elderly man left his car running with the keys in the ignition while he was putting his walker into the trunk.According to the sheriff's office, a man, later identified as 25-year-old Jaylen Alexander, allegedly attacked the elderly man, slamming the hood of the trunk on his chest and his walker.Alexander is accused of then getting into the man's car, locking the doors and trying to drive away. After stalling multiple times, Alexander left the car and took off running, the sheriff's office said. The elderly man told authorities he believed the reason Alexander stalled was because he did not know how to drive a manual transmission, according to a sheriff's arrest affidavit.

This is neither male nor Floridian, but it does max out the OMG meter.

Yeah, yeah.

Back on topic:

Floridaman charged with home break-in, says he was just following his horse

...“The guy said, ‘My horse broke into your house, mister, and I had to go in and get her,'” Ferguson told Bay News 9. “I said, ‘OK, so she broke into the gate and then the porch and then the house?'”

Video showed Maddox walking around the home. He was unable to get in through the padlocked from door so he went around back and smashed through a window.

Maddox told deputies he was just following the horse, which he claims entered through a broken fence, according to an arrest report.

The strangest part of the story? It wasn’t even Maddox’s horse. The animal was returned to its owners.

I've also heard it's because the public has access to all police reports or something of that nature that we hear so much about "Florida Man..."

Floridaman, 85, accused of murdering 90-year-old common law wife, police say

An 85-year-old Florida man has been charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing his common-law wife of six decades after police found him with blood underneath his fingernails, reports say.

***

Police responded to a report of a suspicious man standing in the middle of a roadway in Poinciana, Fla., shortly before 6 a.m., where they spotted the suspect with his hands and shirt covered in blood. When deputies questioned Tavera, he could not recall his address and was transported to a local hospital.

...Guillen allegedly also believed he was in Tampa, not Vero Beach. The two cities are on opposite sides of Florida, roughly 140 miles apart.

How romantic!

I have got to meet this woman!

Authorities said the same woman was involved in a separate incident last month in which another man she was with jumped on her car, smashed the windshield and knocked her unconscious.

Truck driving Florida man charged with intentionally running over a family of ducks playing in a puddle


A Tampa, Fla., area man is charged with using his pickup truck to mow down a mother duck and her 11 ducklings near his trailer park home.

Pinellas County cops arrested James Clairmont, who turns 57 next week, for aggravated animal cruelty after he plowed down the birds, killing two and injuring a third. Multiple witnesses, including a child, told police they saw Clairmont, of Largo, slow down for a speed bump, then gun his white Ford truck straight at the helpless ducks.
