A Circle K Chocolate Egg Lands Florida Man Behind Bars
How can something as simple as a chocolate egg land you behind bars? Ask Florida Man, because he definitely knows.
We happen to think it’s a little early for Easter candy to be out, but maybe that’s what set Florida Man off in the first place when he went into his local Circle K store to pick up a few items.
What we do know is that something triggered him enough for him to work on his fastball with a chocolate egg.
His aim apparently was pretty good, too.
FLORIDA MAN STRIKES AGAIN!
DATELINE – Tarpon Springs. And the Saga of Florida Man John Mehas, who had stopped into a Circle K store to pick up some things.
He waited in line. When it was his turn to pay, well, he refused to be served by Edward Riordan. We’re not quite sure why.
“I don’t want to pay you. I want to pay THAT guy.” So Mehas went and paid the other guy in line.
Well, apparently something had happened between Riordan and Mehas because that was the point at which Mehas picked up a chocolate egg and threw it at Riordaon, striking him in the forehead.
Now, it’s a little early for Easter, isn’t it? Wouldn’t you think it’d be the Valentine’s Day candy?
I don’t know if this was a Hershey’s chocolate egg, a Cadbury chocolate egg. Either way, it’s a waste.
Well, after Riordan then told Mehas to leave the store, Mehas became irate, according to the police report, and hurdled the counter in an attempt to push and strike Riordan’s face.
When subsequently questioned by the cops, Mehas reportedly admitted that he jumped over the register counter and struck the victim.
He was arrested for battery. That’s a misdemeanor. Booked into the county jail on a $1,000 bond.
No idea what sparked this, but you can only imagine the conversation in jail – “Hey, tough guy. What are you in here for?” “Ummm, I threw a chocolate egg at a guy.”
