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.
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.
A Fool-Proof Plan
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.
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.
That Will Show Him!
Judes Exantus didn't have a great day on August seventh, 2014. First, he was pulled over for running a stop sign, then tried to deny that he had committed any wrongdoing. However, the officer clearly witnessed the violation and started writing a ticket.
Sadly, the device that writes the tickets was also having a bad day, and Exantus was impatient. So, he decided to call 911 and complain. This, of course, resulted in another charge, misuse of 911, which led to an arrest and a need to post a $2,000 bail.
