“He was also acting like he was going to fight the fire hydrant in front of him prior to being taken into custody,” the officer wrote.

The report does not indicate if McKenna — or the fire hydrant — landed any blows.

Boxers face off in Florida restaurant over a bowl of spaghetti (VIDEO)

Filed under: Controversy,Dumb,Fight,Florida Nut,Really Dumb,Stupid,Weird,WTF? — floridaduh @ 1:32 pm

Talk about a food fight.

Two world heavyweight champion boxers faced off in a Florida restaurant — over a bowl of pasta.

Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko, a current heavyweight champion, was eating at Mamma Mia’s Italian restaurant in Hollywood, Fla., when former two-time champion Shannon Briggs approached him. The bizarre face-off was caught on video.

“Everywhere you go, I go, champ,” Briggs yelled. “What you do, I do, champ.”

To prove his point, Brigg’s grabbed the Ukrainian boxer’s plate and dug in to his meal.

“What you eat, I eat, champ,” he said.

Klitschko remained cool, and even offered his spontaneous dinner guest a drink of water to go with his food. He poured a bottle of water into a glass. Then, he dumped it on Brigg’s head.

That set the Brooklyn-born boxer off even further.

Briggs smacked the food off of Klitschko’s table, sending plates flying across the restaurant. A furious Briggs knocked over the table before two other men grabbed him and wrestled him to the ground.

Both Klitschko and Briggs are heavyweight champions.

Briggs stormed out of the restaurant, leaving behind a trail of broken glass, thrown food and overturned chairs. He even had to go to the hospital after he cut his leg and foot on some of the glass, TMZ reported.

This isn’t the first time the two boxers have squared off — or have at least tried to.

In a strange April confrontation, Briggs broke into a Klitschko press conference and demanded to fight the heavyweight. Security kicked him out before any punches were thrown.

A Gainesville man was arrested early Friday morning after police say he got into a fight with another man, brawled on the hood of a taxicab and punched the cabbie after he asked the two men to move.

sfl-flduh-fight-taxi-hood-20140801-001Tristian J. Williams, 29, was leaving [a]the Balls bar at 1716 University Ave. when he and another man started to fight, according to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report.

From split-up to spit-down some old flames die hard July 30, 2014

So-called “dip spit” is foul enough to look at, so imagine the horror when the stinky stew of saliva and tobacco juice is thrown on you.

sfl-flduh-spit-split-20140729-001That, according to the ex-boyfriend of Jenna Ketcham, is what happened July 12 at a gas station in the 9400 block of 90th Avenue in Sebastian, a recently released arrest affidavit states.

The ex-boyfriend, identified as the victim, told Sebastian police he was pumping gas when Ketcham, 25, pulled in.

The victim’s current girlfriend was in the passenger seat of the victim’s vehicle. The victim hopped in his vehicle and locked the doors.

After punching the window on the passenger side where the victim’s girlfriend sat, Ketcham went to the driver’s side. She remembered the key pad code and got the door open.

She punched the victim in the face, and “grabbed an old cup of dip spit . . . and tossed its contents all over (the victim’s) right shoulder, leaving a brown stain on his T-shirt,” the affidavit states.

Dip spit is the mixture of saliva and tobacco juice produced by users of smokeless tobacco, also known as dip. Dip, which is not to be confused with chewing tobacco, is placed between the cheek and gum, and the resulting, brownish combination of saliva and dip juice is spit out, often into a cup.

Meanwhile, Ketcham apparently was so angry she was spitting nails because she “gave (the victim) one final blow to the genitals with her fist,” the affidavit states.

Ketcham then got in her vehicle and left, evidently traveling farther than spitting distance away.

The victim’s current girlfriend gave an account of the incident consistent with the victim.

Police eventually spoke to Ketcham, and she denied striking the victim.

The affidavit didn’t state whether the “dip spit” was produced by the victim, his current girlfriend or someone else entirely.

Spit and polish might not work as well as a washing machine to cleanse the brown stain from the dip spit from the victim’s shirt.

Ketcham, of the 700 block of Holden Avenue in Sebastian, was arrested on charges including burglary of a conveyance and battery (domestic violence).

 

Argument over women’s rights ends in the most Florida way possible, with a rabbit being punched July 2, 2014

BUNNYPUNCHER_17340Police say a Boynton Beach man argued with his girlfriend over women’s rights, then violently attacked her rabbit when she said she wanted to end the relationship.

Boynton Beach police responded to the 1000 block of Lake Terrace at 11:38 p.m. Friday for a report of a disturbance.

According to an arrest report, when the woman retreated to a bedroom to end the argument she heard a high-pitched screaming coming from the apartment’s living room. She told police she went to the living room and saw her boyfriend James W. Wertz, 28, abusing her pet rabbit by squeezing and punching it. She said he was hitting the rabbit so hard that blood was coming from its face.

When the woman tried to get Wertz to stop, she said he became enraged. She tried calling 9-1-1 and he threw her across the room, she said. He then grabbed a shirt and left, according to the report.

Police searched for Wertz but were unable to find him. The woman left the apartment for the night because she told police that Wertz has keys and she was afraid he would return after police left.

Police report the rabbit survived the beating and is recovering.

Wertz was located and arrested a few hours later. He remained jailed Tuesday on battery and animal cruelty charges.
