Of course, you’d hear something like this come out of the state of Florida.
Only in Florida could a pickup football game for fun become so serious that someone would pull a gun out and try to kill their opponent because they are upset about being ‘Mossed’ and scored on.
According to to the Palm Beach Post, a 28-year old Florida man lost his cool recently and fired gun shots at opponent at a pickup football game:
A man told Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies that after his brother scored a touchdown on a 28-year-old man during a pickup football game in Wellington in November, the man threatened to kill them and fired a gun at them.
Investigators arrested Ruleon Michel of Belle Glade this month on charges of aggravated assault with a weapon and shooting into an occupied vehicle.
According to the Post, Michel was later arrested on December 6 on charges of aggravated assault with a weapon and shooting into an occupied vehicle, and is being held on $100,000 bail.
Some people just aren’t into losing.
