A Florida man was arrested at a Naples traffic stop after being found in possession of a live baby alligator, firearms and loaded syringes. Michael Marolla, 31, was stopped by local law enforcement at around 12:30 a.m. after officers said they recognized him from a previous encounter regarding a suspended license. Marolla was one of three individuals in the car, including Adam Scarborough and Marco Duran, according to police arrest records.
Officers at the scene found a baby alligator “in an open plastic tub” in the back of Marolla’s truck, according to a Facebook post by the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.
They discovered two firearms, one hidden in the glove box and another underneath the front passenger seat, police said. Marolla was also found with two loaded syringes in his jacket that later tested positive for methamphetamine, police said.
Collier County Sheriff’s Office confirmed via Facebook that Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was notified about the alligator, with wildlife officers assisting in the incident.
Marolla was charged with two counts of carrying a concealed firearm and is facing charges for carrying controlled substances.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission handled the alligator possession investigation, according to their statement. A citation was issued for the possession of the alligator.
ROCKLEDGE, Fla. – A 61-year-old Florida man was arrested on
allegations of urinating on cases of beer inside a Brevard County store.
According to a Rockledge police arrest affidavit, on Saturday the man walked into the Hop and Pop convenience store on Eyster Boulevard and tried to enter the restroom, but it was locked.
The man then went into the store’s “beer cave” and made it appear like he was looking at the merchandise, police said.
According to the affidavit, store video shows the man facing toward the shelves, unzipping his pants and urinating on cases of beer. The store owner said six cases of beer totaling $113.36 were damaged and could not be sold, according to police.
The affidavit said police identified the man from his license plate, which was captured on surveillance video. Police made contact with the man on Wednesday, arresting him on a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief.
A Florida man called cops to come and test his meth after fearing he had been duped into buying bath salts - only for officers to charge him for possession when they found it was authentic.
The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office got a call on Friday at around 7pm from Thomas Eugene Colucci in Mariner Boulevard, Spring Hill, who told deputies he had recently purchased methamphetamine from a man he met in a bar.
Colucci told officers over the phone he was an experienced drug user, saying he 'knew what it should feel like' - having tried some and thinking it was actually bath salts - before handing them his address and asking them to come over.
When the officers arrived, Colucci produced two small baggies, each containing a white crystal-like substance, and handed them over to the deputy. The deputy tested it and found that it was, in fact, meth. The cops then arrested him for possession of the drug along with two counts of drug paraphernalia, with a bond set at $7,000.
'If you, or someone you know, have doubts about the authenticity of any illegal narcotics you have on-hand or have obtained from another person, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to provide this service, FREE of charge,' the Sheriff’s Office said on Friday.
Before the arrest, Colucci told officers he wanted his methamphetamine tested, as he did not want other people to purchase 'fake' meth from the same drug dealer.
'Evidently, the substance Colucci had recently purchased did not provide the expected sensation, hence the call to 9-1-1,' said the Sheriff’s Office. Colucci wanted deputies to 'put the person in trouble' for selling dangerous drugs, but he was unable to provide a name or any contact info for the person who sold them to him. After being placed under arrest, Colucci told the deputies he was having some chest pains, said officers.
Deputies then drove him to a local hospital, where he was medically cleared by a physician. After the short detour, police turned then turned to the Hernando County Detention Center, and charged the Florida man.
Users commenting under the Hernando County Sheriff’s online post shared their own similar experiences.
'I worked in a hospital lab, a guy came in and asked us to test the contents he just purchased in the baggie he was carrying,' said one person.
'I referred him to the PD's forensic lab. It happens.'
Another commenter said: 'I was a 911 dispatcher for 5.5 years, and had people call in reporting their drugs were used by a friend, their drugs were fake, their drugs were stolen, their hooker didn't provide the right "services" or tried to over charge them, etc. 'People under the influence don't make the smartest choices.'
Elon Musk engaged in a Twitter spat with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after she rebuked billionaires and delivered an indirect rebuttal to the Tesla Inc. chief executive’s tweet saying that the Democratic Party “has been hijacked by extremists.”
Musk, who has agreed to buy Twitter Inc. for $44 billion, tweeted about Democrats to his nearly 89 million followers Thursday, hours after tweeting a cartoon showing liberals sprinting far to the left since 2008.
Ocasio-Cortez, a leader of young progressive Democrats who has 12.9 million Twitter followers of her own, never named Musk. She rejected his assertion about the party.
In a separate tweet, she blamed hate crimes on “some billionaire with an ego problem” who “unilaterally controls a massive communication platform,” though she didn’t make clear to whom she was referring.
But Musk responded to that tweet, saying “Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy” followed by a smiley-face emoji. Ocasio-Cortez replied on Twitter: “I was talking about Zuckerberg, but ok,” in an apparent reference to Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and then deleted that response 57 seconds later, per an archive of deleted politician tweets kept by ProPublica.
She did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

this story blurb pops up on the website home page.
I come to realize that I have absolutely no fuckin' clue what the story is about, who the people might be that are involved, and certainly no idea what they're doing or why, and I come to this new revelation.
Very little of what is presented in the media these days is directed towards me or anyone even remotely like me. There are entire generations of people out there the may speak the same language as I do, but I don't understand a word they say.
And - honestly? - I am a-o-fuckin-k with that...
It is beyond the scope of my ability to comprehend that this crazy fat racist fuck of a over-sized loudmouth idiot woman is actually taken seriously as a candidate for public office, let alone one as powerful as the Governorship of a state.
Her only pitch to voters is that she's black and female and if they elect her she'll give 'em all kinds free shit. Great platform, babe...
Barb and I went over by Canaveral about two months ago to see one of the Spacex launches. We were on the beach in New Smyrna around 10 miles north of the launch site and it was still seriously impressive as all giddup. I tried to video it on my phone but I fucked up somehow and it didn't work, but I digress...
I can't even imagine what it'd be like to be right there watching. It's gotta be loud as fuck too. I gotta bucket-list that shit. Who knows, right?
