The most WTF Florida Man headlines of all time
Thanks to the Sunshine State’s Sunshine Law, which requires all government offices (including police departments) to make their records easily accessible to the public, newspapers are filled with stories relaying all the illegal shenanigans acted out by Florida’s 21 million residents.
In addition to its hungry alligators and monstrous snakes, the state is now infamous for another unique force of nature: Florida Man. From the Panhandle to Key West, no part of Florida is safe from the felonious hijinks that so often make headlines.
