Florida Man’s Bad Tattoo Only Tells Part of the Story
We can only wonder what went through Florida Man’s head when he chose the text for his really bad tattoo. But the horrible ink job only begins to tell the story.
FLORIDA MAN STRIKES AGAIN!
DATELINE – Davenport and the saga of Florida man Timothy Hogue.
The short version of the story is Hogue was being pursued by police because he was a suspect in a series of recent car burglaries. He tried to evade police, gave his car a little too much gas, lost control of it, and crashed it.
He suffered minor injuries, and he’s been hit with a slew of charges.
But there is SO much more to this story because he wasn’t alone in the car.
The incident happened a couple of days ago, caught on video camera deputies responding to reports of a man and a woman trying to burglarize multiple cars in a neighborhood. The suspect vehicle was a white 2006 Cadillac, and it was spotted by a deputy on the street who tried to stop it. But the car fled into the neighborhood. So the deputy and a bystander luckily got out of the way.
Only one way in the neighborhood. Only one way out of the neighborhood. So the deputy didn’t pursue the car.
The car turned around, came past the deputy down the same street, and it slammed into a parked car. Thankfully, nobody was inside that parked car, but Hogue and his female companion had to be pulled out of the Cadillac, both taken to a local hospital to be treated.
So Hogue and the passenger, she’s identified as Rebecca Kozub, they were interviewed. Hogue said he admitted to the burglaries, but he threw the girl under the bus, saying that it was her idea. He said he fled because he, quote, “just freaked out.”
Bad ink job
Hogue’s mugshot is priceless because it features a neck tattoo that says “all gas, no brakes.” Well, he is all banged up. He’s got cuts all over his forehead. It made for an interesting mug shot.
He was arrested and charged with burglary of an unoccupied conveyance felony, petty theft, fleeing to elude, conspiracy to commit burglary.
Oh, and wait, there’s more.
Possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting without violence.
The woman, on the other hand, suffered a fractured leg. She’s also expected to face charges.
Hogue has a prior criminal history that consists of 31 felonies and 18 misdemeanors. And as for his female companion, she has a record that includes 19 felonies and 20 misdemeanors. Boy, talk about a match made in heaven!
I have a feeling that the tattoo on his neck should have said “all ink, no brains.”
