Christian Eugene Mosco thought he had come up with the perfect plan to get himself out of trouble. He declined to file charges against himself, except he can’t do that since he’s the person being charged and isn’t a prosecutor or a lawyer.
Thanks to his tricky tactic, he’s now facing a slew of other charges, such as impersonating a prosecutor and practicing law without a license.
Only Drinking at Stop Signs
If you get pulled over, it's hard to resist the temptation to try and come up with a perfect excuse. This guy decided that only drinking when the car wasn't in motion was good enough for him.
Of course, the police officer that caught him doing so wasn't listening to the well-thought-out and clearly-reasoned argument. Being drunk while in control of a moving vehicle is still illegal, no matter how many loopholes you think you've found.
Go Easy on Him, He's New Here
While he was looking for Byron Leftwich, Tom Brady wandered into the wrong house. David Kramer lives right next to Leftwich, and their houses look similar – almost identical. According to Kramer, who was sitting at home, Brady walked in the front door, dropped a couple of duffel bags on the floor, looked up, and asked if he was in the right house.
It wasn't. Since this man was new to Florida, he opted for an apology and for throwing an alligator.
The Ring Bearer Is Usually a Human
In a heartwarming, fully-Florida story, a man named Eric proposed to his girlfriend Samantha. He didn't have a box with the ring in it, however. Instead, he had tied the ring to a baby alligator and presented the animal to Samantha as she said yes.
We're surprised that's allowed, but it turns out this was at a place called “Gatorland.” Samantha was, reportedly, more excited about the alligator than the proposal. Ouch.
We've All Had Days Like This
Gerald Griffin, 69, was having a fight with his roommate Danielle and wanted her gone, so he called the police at 12:30 in the morning. And at 1:30. And at 2:50 (still in the same morning), again. The deputies went to Griffin's home.
While they were there, he called 911 two more times. The deputies left, and Griffin called again, at around 3:30, to thank the deputies. They returned one last time, confirmed that Griffin had called six times without any real emergencies, and arrested him.
