The 12 Hours of Sebring is an annual gathering of like-minded motoring and alcohol enthusiasts where they are free to embrace their inner Florida Man. There’s also a world-famous endurance race going on at the same time, but these fine Floridian gentlemen were too busy with their own motorsport endeavors to pay much…
Three teens were taken into custody by Florida police, after they allegedly stole 46—forty six—cars across three cities, police said on Monday. The arrests followed an apparently hectic effort to track down the thieves.
Video showing what clearly appears to be a Florida Highway Patrolman in a Highway Patrol Dodge Charger lining up alongside a Lamborghini Aventador and racing down the road is now under investigation.
A 22-year-old Sheriff’s cadet named Christopher Combs has a father who’s a Palm Beach, Florida, Sheriff’s lieutenant. What he doesn’t seem to have is any sense whatsoever, since he used his dad’s unmarked Sheriff’s car to pull over his ex and screw with her and her new boyfriend.
What’s the going rate for a utility pole these days? I didn’t know until now, thanks to the very obvious handy work of Florida Men Blake Waller and Victor Apeler, who police discovered on Wednesday hauling away a stolen utility pole strapped atop a Kia SUV. It didn’t work out for them.
“Would you like for me to hold your beer?” offers a kind soul nearby. “No, I got this,” said the true, honest-to-goodness Florida Man man atop a camo-print 2013 Can-Am XMR 1000 at the bottom of the pool. This is perhaps the most majestic act of Florida Manning I’ve seen in a long time.
Police arrested a man while he watching the solar eclipse on Monday because he stopped to look up and was caught next to the car he had recently stolen.
A 25-year-old Orlando man was arrested and charged with DUI after allegedly smashing his 2003 Chevy Blazer through the gates of an apartment complex and proceeding to wreak havoc in the parking lot, crashing into 17 cars in what may have been the worst parking job ever.
On Wednesday, Florida resident Jorge Jove clearly couldn’t stomach the sight of an AT&T work truck parked out front of his house. Naturally, police say, he retrieved a revolver and started shooting out the tires and engine.
We’ve all heard of Florida Man. He’s America’s worst superhero. Whether he’s getting caught with James Bond gadgets, crashing his truck into a house, beating people up with golf clubs, running over everyone during a street fight, claiming to be Satan, or whatever else even Stan Lee couldn’t dream up, Florida Man is…
If you’ve ever seen Goldfinger or basically half of the James Bond movies, you’ve probably thought about how neat the rotating license plate gadgets on the British superspy’s cars were. Too bad it doesn’t work out so great in the real world.
It’s nice to win a prize. Scratch-off lotto tickets, a free milkshake, free tickets to a show. Prizes are good. On Wednesday, Linsey Owens, 83, thought he had won a prize from a local Nissan dealer. He did not. When a Nissan employee explained why, police say, Owens beat him with a golf club.
It was just your typical 3 a.m. street fight outside of a bar in Tampa until Florida Man went and ran everybody over.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he drove a Camry. I always figured the Prince of Darkness would be an ‘80s Jaguar type of guy, but I guess not. Apparently, he likes Toyotas.
These guys are everything that’s wrong with motorcyclists, and they’re why people hate us.
Few things could ever force me to drive into oncoming traffic, especially on a motorcycle. But this rider did exactly that to get away from a road-raging lunatic.
Florida Man is at it again. This time, he attempted to answer the question: “Why buy food, when you can get a really ugly BMW instead?” Authorities say that he’s been charged with stealing a car after a dealership declined his offer to purchase it with food stamps.
I know even typing the word “Florida” here will be seen as unnecessary, but in South Florida, a 59-year-old man stole a backhoe and took it on an hour-and-a-half joyride up and down a bridge, tossing boulders and scraping the road surface, sending showers of beautiful sparks into the air.
Any time we feature some crazily awful story out of Florida, it's typically from a newspaper or local TV news headline that contains these two words: "Florida Man." As in, "Florida man arrested again for tasering ex-wife," or "Florida man bites neighbor's thumb off." You get the idea.
