A lot of weird things happen in Florida every week, and on Fridays we're here to round up the weirdest. This week that includes a gold-digger who can't drive, a very passionate karaoke performer, and a woman who attacked her old enemy at a gas station with a sausage.
Woman Tells Deputy DUI Won't Deter Her From Marrying a Millionaire
A 22-year-old named Anna Corinne Robbinson was nabbed for DUI after crashing her 2014 Chevy Captiva into a brick wall in an Orlando neighborhood in the early hours of Wednesday. A Florida Highway Patrol officer responded to the scene and said Robbinson seemed drunk. She had bloodshot eyes, delayed movements, a red face, and a fixed stare, according to the Orlando Sentinel. She failed her field sobriety test and later blew a .132 blood alcohol level and admitted to drinking three beers and two shots.
Naturally, she was charged with DUI, but Robbinson, who works at an attorney's office, didn't think the charges would set her back any in life. For some reason, she voluntarily told the trooper: "I'm now planning to marry a millionaire so I don't have to work." The quote, of course, made it into the arrest report.
Old Beef Leads to Sausage Attack
The World Health Organization this week declared that processed meats may cause cancer, but Floridians already know that they can cause an ass-whooping.
Justice Amber Gough, 18, was arrested near Ocala after she ran into an old enemy at a Kangaroo Express Sunday afternoon. Gough approached the woman and asked, “Do you still want to fight me?"
The woman replied that she didn't even bother thinking about Gough anymore and was now pregnant.
Gough, it turns out, still wanted to fight despite the other woman's pregnancy, because Gough then threw a sausage at her, according to the Ocala Star Banner. Yes, a sausage.
Gough then began punching and scratching the victim, and the victim fought back in self-defense until the fight was broken up. Gough was arrested for assault. The victim refused to elaborate on what the old beef was but says she was doing fine and her pregnancy was unaffected by the gas-station sausage attack.
Man Attacks Karaoke DJ Over Sound Issues
Karaoke isn't supposed to be that intense, but some people take it a little too seriously. People like Joshua Fort, 26, of DeBary. Fort and another man were singing Jay Z and Justin Timberlake's "Holy Grail" at Blackie's Bar last Wednesday night. But Fort didn't want to get up onstage and decided to perform his part while still seated at the bar. During the performance, Fort also began complaining about the sound. Central Florida karaoke DJ Omar Isaac tried to retrieve the mike from Fort, but Fort picked a fight.
"First he started with, 'You don't know who I am. I own this place,' " Isaac told the Daytona Beach News-Journal . "He turned around like he was going to leave and comes back and slams my laptop down."
Fort tried to fight and smashed a glass on the back of Isaac's head, leaving a cut. He then tried to wrestle the DJ to the floor but then fled the bar. He was later found and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
