A lot of weird things happen in Florida. We're here every Friday morning to give you the week's weirdest.
This week: Coke in vaginas, terrible mugshot T-shirts and a neighborhood terrorized by wild pigs.
Woman Caught Hiding Cocaine in Her Coochie
KathyAnn Ferguson, a 26-year-old Broward resident, flew into the Fort Lauderdale Airport after a stay in Jamaica, but after being obtained by Customs and Border Protection authorities admitted that she was hiding a package of cocaine in her vagina. Ferguson voluntarily took the package out, and the contents did in fact test positive for cocaine.
In a bond hearing a judge said that it seemed as if Ferguson was working as a "drug mule," but she did not own up to why the drugs were in her vagina in the first place.
Wild Pigs Threaten Trick or Treaters
Incidences of wild hogs showing up in neighborhoods in one area of Brevard County have become so prevalent that some people are worried they may interfere with Halloween festivities. Yards in 17 homes were uprooted in the past week, and eight hogs have been captured. According to WESH, some are worried that the hogs may be so treat-hungry that they may run afoul of Halloween revelers. Though, the county has a novel idea. They'll fight animal with animal and plan to release a pack of dogs beforehand to scare off the pigs.
Man Arrested in "Go Directly to Jail" shirt
A 20-year-old man in Lee County, Florida, was arrested wearing a "Go Directly to Jail" shirt this week for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, which makes about as much sense as going to jail for drawing an actual "Go Directly to Jail" card in Monopoly, but, hey, here's that's his mugshot.
Bentley Tattoo Mugshot
Oh, and, yes then there's this fellow:
Derek Denesevich of Lauderhill was caught up in the criminal justice system after getting caught stealing people's identities and filing faulty tax returns, but his attorney's said he's trying to clean up his life and offered the fact that he plans to get the Bentley logo tattoo on his forehead surgically removed as proof.
Though, the fact he also worked as an FBI informant to catch other ID thieves also worked. He got off with a one year and three month sentence, after which he'll reunited with his two-year-old son, whose middle name is Bentley.
