“Florida Man” Trifecta



Jacob Jaquett was startled as he was trying to help a friend move in Mayport. He saw a naked man with a 3 to 4 foot sword.

“I was honestly kind of scared because I didn’t know what he had with him or what was going on,” Jaquett said.
He says the man charged at people and screamed at them, as seen in viewer-submitted video.

Action News called the sheriff’s office multiple times to get more information.

Officials could only say there was a call to service at the complex and couldn’t tell us anything else.

Jaquett says other members of the complex were able to get the man to put the sword down.

NY Daily News:

A South Florida man busted stealing thousands of dollars- worth of loot from a store told police and a judge his name was “Ima Thief.”

Police in Sunrise say the brazen bandit was trying to skulk out of an electronics store on North University Drive with two stolen TVs and other gear on Thursday when he was stopped by security, NBC Miami reported.

Police arrived and the man tried to flee, but was arrested.

At a bond hearing Thursday, the man told Broward Judge John Fry the same thing he told cops — his given name was Ima Thief.

ABC News:

A sleeping driver awakened by police at a Florida intersection led authorities on a chase before being arrested in a gated community.

The Palm Beach Post reports that 21-year-old Joslet Jean-Charles was asleep behind the wheel of a 2003 Ford Taurus at a busy intersection in Greenacres, Florida, about 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

When a patrol car pulled in front of Jean-Charles, he awoke, drove around the police and fled. He abandoned the vehicle in front of the Waterway Village development.

Police did not initially find Jean-Charles, but arrested him at an address found on a bill inside the car.
