Florida Man points gun and yells racist comments
Yesterday in Florida Joseph Max Fucheck was arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm with prejudice, and for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Fucheck reportedly placed a business card in the mailbox of Dwayne Wynn while Wynn was across the street talking with a neighbor.
When Wynn looked in his mailbox and removed the business card Fucheck returned and began to yell at Wynn claiming he had stolen property and was being nosy. He accused Wynn of not owning his house and is reported as slurring some of his words. Later Fucheck used the n-word before yelling, “this is why you people get shot”.
The crime is rightfully being deemed a hate crime.
