Anthony Vullo assaults neighbor over a Biden sign
This Florida Man isn’t a fan of presidential nominee Joe Biden, and he’s not afraid to say so. In fact, this Florida Man wanted to take it a step further and show his hatred for Biden physically. Specifically, he wanted to show how much he hated Biden to his neighbor.
You see, this Florida man lived next to a Biden supporter. This poor, unsuspecting neighbor only wanted to support Biden with a sign. Unfortunately, according to Florida Man, the Biden sign blocked his Trump sign. Florida Man was having none of it. He stomped over to his neighbor’s house and tossed the Biden sign in the street.
A shouting match ensued and a fight broke out. Neighbors called 911, as you do when Florida Man gets rowdy. Before police arrived, for good measure, he also punched his neighbor in the face. He was charged with assault.

When they arrived at the construction site they worked at, things got deadly. The argument between Florida Man & his Trump-supporting boss became more heated. Combining Florida Man, a shouting match, and construction equipment isn’t a great idea, though. Florida Man stabbed his boss with a trowel.

From afar, members of the group saw a pickup truck rev up its engine and deliberately charge their tent. This ticked-off Florida Man shouted obscenities at the voters before fleeing the scene. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
