Rodriguez, 40, was showering early Thursday morning in the Lake Worth warehouse where he lived, when he heard his roommate moving the radio dial. He got out immediately and confronted him, nose to nose, Palm Beach County deputies reported.
The roommate anticipated Rodriguez would hit him, so he shoved him away. This only angered him more. Rodriguez went for a machete stashed under a table in the middle of the room, deputies said.
Rodriguez swung, but the roommate ducked in time. Then Rodriguez brought the handle down on the roommate’s cheek, bloodying it, deputies said. After that, they wrangled on the floor. The roommate knocked the machete away and ran outside, where he called 911.
Deputies asked Rodriguez what happened.

Bamboo Flute Blanchard was in his family home in the 2000 block of Southeast 49th Drive in Gainesville on Tuesday evening when, without warning, he attacked his father, who had been lying down in his bedroom, according to a report released by the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office.

Blanchard then walked to his father’s bedroom while being trailed by his younger brother and suddenly stabbed his father in the chest, deputies reported.
Alachua County Fire Rescue transported the elder Blanchard to UF Health Shands Hospital, where he told law enforcement he initially thought his son had punched him in the chest but looked down and saw he had been stabbed, according to the report.

Gainesville Police Officers Kelly Weaver and James Alford were conducting a criminal mischief investigation at 3 a.m. in the 400 block of Northwest Second Avenue and was interviewing the suspect in that case, Daniel Eli Hoffner of Gainesville, when 28-year old Rhawnlie Ann Brown approached and began saying repeatedly she would “stab him in the chest” if he wasn’t arrested, referring to Hoffner.
Ultimately, Brown reached into the basket of her bike and retrieved an item from it and walked toward Hoffner again. Brown then threw a small kitchen paring knife at Hoffner’s back from approximately 20 feet away. Weaver intervened, and the knife fell to the ground without touching Hoffner.
