Florida Man at it again. 8)

Florida man impersonating police pulls over undercover detective (CBS)
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – A Florida man is behind bars after pulling over a real police officer while pretending to be one, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Matthew Joseph Erris, 26, was arrested for impersonating a law enforcement officer, according to WFLA.

According to deputies, Erris turned on red and blue lights Tuesday night and pulled over an undercover detective. The detective called 911 to report the bizarre traffic stop, and Erris was arrested a short while later.

WFLA reported deputies found a “realistic looking” airsoft pistol inside Erris’ Chevy Trailblazer.

He was arrested and later released on bond.

Thousands of Invasive Cane Toads Overtake Florida Community
A mild winter and rain has led to a spring explosion of the amphibians, which are clogging pool filters, lawns and driveways
In Palm Beach Gardens, the current problem isn’t impact on natural habitat, it’s simply the sheer quantity of toads that have emerged. In some areas, people can’t walk outside or drive for fear of squashing the amphibians. There are so many they are even clogging pool filters.

“I just see a massive amount of toads or frogs everywhere, covering every square inch,” Jenni Quasha, who lives in the Mirabella neighborhood, tells NBC affiliate WPTV. “You can’t even walk through the grass without stepping on one. I’m worried about people’s pets, so there’s definitely no swimming in the pool or playing outside and enjoying the outdoors.”
https://www.wptv.com/news/region-n-palm ... k-of-toads
WPTV spoke to Toad Busters, a poisonous toad removal service in South Florida, which confirmed these are bufo/cane toads.

"With the warmer winter and then we had a rain two to three weeks ago, a torrential rain, that caused them to go into a breeding cycle," said Mark Holladay, a lead technician with Toad Busters. "They’re not safe for pets or children. If a pet was to ingest too many of them, even at that small size, it would cause a problem."

Holladay said the problem may not go away anytime soon.

"There will be another influx like this in 22 days when the next batch hatches out, and this is in every community in Florida," said Holladay.

Quasha said her HOA told her it's the responsibility of homeowners to remove the toads.

65-year-old Florida woman beats 300-pound attacker with baseball bat
Local 10 (Florida)
GAINESVILLE, Fla. - There's one thing you need to know if you're going to partake in criminal activity in Florida: Do not mess with Clarese Gainey.

Upon noticing a man in his boxers attempting to break into her Gainesville home Sunday morning, 65-year-old Gainey didn't wait for police to arrive to lay down the law.

Gainey took a baseball bat and smashed the intruder, 300-pound Antonio Mosely, in the head.

"I took that bat and hit him upside the head like 'pi-yah!' He said 'Ow!'" Gainey told WGFL.

Mosely fled the scene and was later found by K-9 units in a nearby mobile home park. Having changed out of his boxers, Mosely was found with cocaine in his pockets.

Mosely was arrested on counts of burglary and drug possession, but things could have been much worse.

"He better be glad I didn't have a gun," Gainey added. "Because I would have shot him. But this is my gun right here (baseball bat)."

‘He poisoned her mind’: Florida man tried to marry 12-year-old niece, prosecutors say

A Florida man was sentenced to 37 years in federal prison last week after a jury found that he sexually abused and tried to marry his 12-year-old niece, federal prosecutors said.

Mirza Hussain, a 56-year-old immigrant from Pakistan, brought his sister, brother-in-law and two nieces to live with him in Brandon, Florida, after they won an immigration lottery and moved to the United States from Bangladesh in 2010, according to court records.

The family from Bangladesh was “culturally isolated, had no jobs, little money, lacked transportation, and struggled to communicate,” prosecutors said, adding that they were “at least initially, alone and completely dependent on Hussain for housing and transportation.”

Hussain’s wife soon started to notice “strange behavior” between her husband and his niece, who was 11 and 12 at the time, according to prosecutors. Eventually Hussain’s wife called child services to report suspected child abuse — and then the wife moved out, as did the niece and her family, prosecutors said.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) — A pair of Florida teens saw their prayers answered after becoming stranded about 2 miles (3 kilometers) from shore.

News outlets report that 17-year-olds Tyler Smith and Heather Brown were swimming at Vilano Beach near St. Augustine during a senior skip day last month when strong currents pulled them out to sea.

The Christ’s Church Academy students say they were holding onto each other and praying to God for help just before Captain Eric Wagner and his crew spotted them. The boat was called the Amen.
