10 Most WTF Florida Man Stories of 2016 (So Far)

From shuffleboard disputes to flamingo assault to “unlawful possession and transportation of an alligator”

Florida has a bit of a reputation when it comes to crime. No one knows whether it's something in the water, due to the incessant heat or simply a result of the state's liberal open-records laws, but so-called Florida Man (and woman and teen) has become a national legend for weird crimes like naked burglary or stalking the streets, armed, while dressed like a dinosaur. If no one is calling the cops on them, Florida Man is known to stand shirtless in a hurricane while blasting Slayer, or to call 911 themselves to report a lack of vodka or just to talk about Hitler. Even when they are not committing crimes, Florida Man can be seen walking into the hospital with a dead shark still attached to their arm, or taking three days to discover that he shot himself, or being sucked into a nuclear power plant. Their reputation appears to be well earned. To celebrate their ignominious accomplishments, here are the 10 Best Florida Man stories of 2016, so far.
