A pedestrian was struck and killed and the responding Florida deputies hit the body as they arrive on the scene.
Hillsborough County. Florida. To Florida deputies responding to a crash. That unfortunately killed a poor pedestrian. Each deputy hit the body as they arrived onto the scene according to officials. This. This incident. Shouldn’t laugh. This incident happened at four am on Sunday. Okay. So it’s four am and their defense is quite dark out at four. AM perhaps they didn’t see the pedestrian laying in the middle of the road. Although you are responding to. A dead person in the middle of the road, you would think that they would be on the lookout for a dead person in the middle of the road upon arriving. Man The officials say at twenty-seven-year-old. Man was struck by a forty one year old woman driving east the woman reported the crash was cooperating with the authorities. That was part one part two featured the deputies responding to her call. Each of them arriving on the scene and running over the body of the pedestrian who is still in the middle of the road. It says here, the Florida Highway Patrol. They. Say This is their quote. The pedestrian had already been killed in the first collision. Yeah thanks for that information. Yeah. We all we all assumed he had been killed in the first collision not in the second or the third. Although, you’re not helping the situation Florida highway patrol with your. With your compiling on of more collisions that are just unnecessary. And their defense perhaps it was a very small pedestrian. It doesn’t say the size of the pedestrian there’s no photo. People come in all sizes could could be a very tiny person difficult to see or. The pedestrian could have been so flattened from the first collision that you know to them it just looked like a very small speed bump on the road you might. It might’ve been so flat this pedestrian that you couldn’t see the pedestrian I’m just trying to. Create a defense for these highway patrol officers I mean or or. Or the Florida highway patrol is drunk. The have you thought of that that could be a solution as well the Florida highway patrol. Be? Drunk. They could be well, let’s say they just came from. They were breaking up a party or rave, and they came across some meth and they had to figure out if it was authentic meth I, mean these are the sort of problems that I’d imagine Florida police have, and you know they gotta get to the bottom of everything. Of. Course this is no joke. This is no laughing matter. Thoughts and prayers go out to the pedestrian that was unfortunately. Killed in this incident.
A Florida father brought guns to Disneyworld in order to ensure his family’s safety.
A father of two and Florida, brought an ar fifteen rifle. A nine millimeter handgun and one hundred and ten rounds of ammunition to Walt. Disneyworld. In order to ensure his family’s safety, the Orange County sheriff’s office said this week. According to the report a bell man at the hotel noticed the a are fifteen in a tennis bag as he loaded the families bags onto a luggage cart. Go. Da- just let someone else handle your bags full of guns. Real genius. Of, course, the police were notified by the hotel and they arrived and questioned the man when they did. So he told them that he drove up from Palm Spring Gardens to Disneyworld with the rifle and pistol for quote safety because of the riots and all the civil unrest going on in the area. Hundred and ten rounds of ammunition. Were you planning on settling all the riots and civil unrest yourself Sir while your family road it’s a small world. The man cooperated with the police and he didn’t break any laws apparently because he had a concealed carry license but unfortunately, Disneyworld does not allow guns on its property.
What a surprise probably should’ve looked at the website Sir before you brought hundred ten rounds of ammunition and a couple of guns to Disneyworld maybe Disney might have had a rule about bringing in guns. A Disney spokesperson said. you know our policy is clear that weapons of any kind or not allowed at our resort regardless whether someone has a permit or not. Oh. Okay. Now defend the father just for a moment here Listen we all know how expensive it is to go to Disney. Perhaps, they’ve been planning this trip for a while. So who is he let some civil unrest or rioting keep his family from reading some rides and seeing Mickey and Minnie and the whole crew you know. So I I see where he’s coming from.
A Florida man calls nine one one to report himself drunk driving.
What an honest man winter haven. ooh Home of the Winter Haven Red Sox go Boston. Sorry guys anytime. I could slip red sox reference. Florida authorities in winter haven are sharing the details of an unusual nine one one call from a man who said he wanted to report himself drunk driving. I would love to hear that call. Oh Man. How do you report yourself? How do you even have the wherewithal to call nine one while you’re drunk driving? You couldn’t be that drunk if you actually had the scruples to pick up your phone and call nine one one and let them know that I’m drunk. Polk County sheriff’s officials say the dispatcher kept him talking while directing officers to the scene? When the dispatcher asked Michael Lester where he was he said Joe Drunk I don’t know where I’m at I. Don’t know I’m on the road is a road. My lights are on I’m GonNa road there’s other cars who know the coming right at me. What he’d been doing all night. He said I don’t know driving around trying to get pulled over actually. Driving on the wrong side of the road. Now, he later said the operator reportedly urged him to park his truck and wait for officers to find him. Unfortunately, he chose the wrong spot. Look guys I don’t know I’m parked in the middle of the road. Can you see me? Can you see me sirens could be heard in the background short time later who to go dispatcher? The deputies arrived in Leicester admitted drinking some beers and swallowing some methamphetamine. He also said, he barely slept for several days. But you really gotta give him some points for being honest and turning himself in I. Mean I hope they don’t hit them with major charges just let them sleep it off and he can be on his way. I mean anybody who calls nine one one on themselves to report themselves drunk driving his okay in my book you now. Especially in the state of Florida Hey. If you’re part of the solution of getting your drunk ass off the road and not killing somebody I am all for you.
