Florida Man’s T-Shirt Helps Lead To His Arrest
If Florida Man insists on continuing to commit crimes, it might help if his choice of t-shirt didn’t help lead directly to his arrest.
Especially if he was just recently behind bars.
In this case, orange is indeed the new black t-shirt, minus the too-real-to-be-true words on the t-shirt that helped put this Florida Man back behind bars.
FLORIDA MAN STRIKES AGAIN!
DATELINE – Tampa and the Saga of Florida Man Michael Gordon.
There is a saying – dress for success. There’s another saying – don’t dress for the job you have, dress for the job that you want. That kind of factors into what happened with Gordon.
Florida Man back behind bars after being accused of obstructing a burglary investigation. Now, it’s not unusual for Florida Man to be behind bars.
Well, here are the details.
According to an arrest report from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, several witnesses reported seeing someone enter an unlocked car that was parked outside of an apartment building.
The suspect was described by eyewitnesses as a white male wearing tan shorts and a black t-shirt.
Not just any black t-shirt, though. A black t-shirt that said, “I just got out of prison.”
Deputies were able to track Gordon down about two blocks away from the alleged break-in of the car.
According to the arrest report, Gordon refused to identify himself and refused to cooperate with the investigation. When told that he would be charged with obstruction, he continued to refuse to speak, saying, “Call my lawyer.”
Gordon was identified not just by the t-shirt, but his fingerprints.
He’s been charged with obstruction by a disguised person and was booked into the Pinellas County jail.
Truth in advertising for Florida Man
Oh, by the way, the T-shirt was accurate. Jail records indicate that Gordon had been released from jail earlier this year, back in March.
He’s probably trading in that t-shirt for an orange jumpsuit right about now.
