    Florida man reported $18k income. Got almost $1 million refund. Now the IRS wants its money back
    Tax season is upon us. And for most, a massive tax return is what we hope for. But for one lucky 29-year-old man in Florida, the IRS sent the refund check of a lifetime.
    Tampa man, Ramon Christopher Blanchett, listed his occupation as a “freelancer” in an electronically submitted self-prepared income tax return before receiving a refund of $980,000 on a reported income of $18,497.
    Blanchett had W-2 forms showing wages from a nursing home and restaurant and $1 million of federal income tax withholding, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
    SunTrust froze the funds for suspected fraud before sending him a cashier’s check for $980,000.

    ‘Never aim at aircraft,’ reads laser pointer. But Clearwater man tells deputies he didn’t know. Looks like this guy would have a hard time to get even 2 digits on a standard IQ test:

    Have a hunch this guy was arrest more for his tattos then the actual crime.

    A Florida man was arrested for domestic battery after he reportedly threw a cookie at his girlfriend.

    Wade Smith, 41, of Zephyrhills, was taken into custody on Sunday after deputies with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office were called to the home he shares with his girlfriend, WFLAreported.

    Smith's girlfriend reportedly told investigators that he "threw a hard piece of cookie and hit her in the forehead," which deputies noted was red when they responded to the scene.

    The 41-year-old, according to the news station, confessed to authorities that he threw the cookie at her.

    Online records from the sheriff's office indicate Smith was booked at the Pasco County Jail in Land O' Lakes on $500 bond.

    Florida man accused of bludgeoning crew member to death on fishing boat
    The Associated Press
    A Florida man has been charged with bludgeoning to death a sleeping crew member aboard a fishing vessel in the Gulf of Mexico.
    Federal authorities said Wednesday that Casey Hickok, 32, of Copeland was arrested on a charge of second-degree murder.
    According to a complaint, the captain of the “No Bitchin” vessel radioed for help Monday for a “domestic dispute.”

    It appears that google is helping with the spread of Florida Man according to a number of articles, such as this one: 'Florida Man' birthday challenge takes over social media

    If you enter Florida Man followed by a date the search engine and privacy 'friend' gives you great information that occurred on that date.
