Florida Seventh Grader Sends 41 to Hospital When He Mistakes Pepper Spray for Body Spray

A Florida boy sent at least 40 of his classmates to the hospital when he mistook a of pepper spray for body fragrance spray and sprayed himself with it at school.

A student at Highlands Middle School in Jacksonville, Florida caused the school's gymnasium to be evacuated after dispersing the spray last week, according to a Friday report in The Gainesville Sun. The boy had taken the pepper spray from the belongings of another student before deciding to help himself to a generous spritz.

Ahsposo went to school with pepper spray back in the 70s? The Brownies and Bluebirds were picking on Ahsposo? Just join the Girl Scouts already and fight back! And sell them cookies! And quit letting the Florida Gators beat Jawja every year! Even a mediocre Texas Longhorn team beat ya in In The Sugar Bowl.

Pro Tip #1 . You will never, ever be able to insult ahsposo by using football teams. His interest in American football is Less Than ZERO. You're better off trying to insult him with comparative technology. For example:

"ahsposo's phone is SO stupid it was held back in 2nd Grade. Twice." "ahsposo is SO fat he uses a bellytop computer"

Naked Florida Man Spent 24 Hours Raging Through High School, Cops Say


Police in Florida are offering a $3,000 reward for help identifying a man they say broke into a high school while naked and spent nearly 24 hours inside destroying things, leaving damages worth more than $100,000.

...

A still shot of the footage released by police shows the man apparently wearing headphones and looking directly at a camera. He allegedly destroyed computers, flooded parts of the building, and painted graffiti on the walls while he was inside the building.

Florida ambulance-theft suspect chased down, arrested at gunpoint, police video shows

A Florida man suspected of stealing an ambulance from a hospital Tuesday night was chased by police across multiple counties before being pulled over and arrested at gunpoint, authorities said.
Video available from the FCSO

It was very nice of the driver to be stopped on SR 11 in Bunnell, just a few blocks from the jail

Yeah, this was in my county but we love our sheriff and his deputies, they are great

Floridaman likes weird pizza:

Sausage, onion and iguana: Dead reptile found in pizza joint

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — File it under pizza toppings only offered in Florida. State inspectors found an 80-pound (36-kilogram) iguana stashed in the freezer at a local pizza joint.

Pizza Mambo in West Palm Beach was forced to close for a day last week following the inspection by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

The restaurant could not be reached for comment, but an employee told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the reptile was given as a personal gift to the owner. It was stored in a separate freezer away from the restaurant’s food and was immediately trashed after they were informed it was a violation.

You can see he is carrying a gun under his shirt, so how threatened could he feel in that situation? If he truly feels threatened, he should be backing off and walking away, which he clearly could have done. Stand your ground is already a joke, but he is taking it to the next level.

'you're gonna need a bigger boat'? Looks like he's doing fine with the boat he's got.
