Florida Jimmy John's Delivery Man With Sandwiches Climbs Atop Moving Train
A lot of weird things happen in Florida every week. On Friday, we're here to bring you the oddest. This week: a Jimmy John's delivery that was so fast it will make you freak, a man who drove with his wife on his SUV's roof for six miles, and a guy who couldn't get enough Tasering.
Jimmy John's Delivery Man Climbs Atop Moving Train
Sandwich chain Jimmy John's schtick is that its delivery is superfast. Apparently, in Jacksonville, one delivery man for the chain is really committed to living up to that promise.
While making his delivery, the sandwich employee was stopped at a railroad crossing as a train passed by. He just decided to climb over the train, with his bike in hand. The man has not been identified, but a local Jimmy John's franchise owner released a statement explaining, "We do not condone that type of delivery method. We expect all of our drivers and delivery employees to follow all traffic laws and, in this case, railroad crossing laws."
Man Drives Six Miles With Wife on Top of SUV
Richard Addy, a 69-year-old resident of Stuart, took his wife out for a night of drinks Monday. They hit up two bars but soon began arguing. Addy had enough and left his 50-year-old wife Elizabeth behind. Or
Later, police pulled Addy over because Elizabeth was on the top of his 2011 Toyota Sequoia. She had been there for at least six miles while he drove.
Addy eventually admitted that when he approached a stop light, he heard his wife banging on the roof but decided not to pull over. He told police that he was in fact just driving around with her hanging onto the roof so he could find an officer to handle the situation.
Elizabeth later told the officer that she had been banging on the roof and pleading for help the entire time. Addy was charged with reckless driving and permitting a passenger to ride on the exterior of a vehicle.
Man Grabs Taser After Being Stunned Five Times
It all began with a disturbance at a Steak '
Police arrived and attempted to get Coburn out of the roadway, but he refused and balled his hands into fists. So that's when police took out a Taser and zapped him. They stunned him two more times because he refused to stay on the ground and then twice again because he refused to let an officer handcuff him. He then grabbed the Taser and tried to escape, but that's when another officer pulled out his service revolver. Coburn finally gave up and was charged with resisting arrest with violence.
