Only in Florida, right? Here’s another story from America’s favorite panhandle state, this time involving Florida State and Florida fans along with a machete. It comes courtesy of the Gainesville Sun.
On Saturday it appears there was an argument between a man and woman inside Gainesville watering hole, the EndZone Cafe. Florida State fan, Brant W. Brown, came to the aid of the woman and challenged the man — and later a bunch of other Gators fans — to fight outside the bar.
Brown went outside, followed by the manager, who was calling 911 and giving police Brown’s description. Brown got a machete from his truck then threatened and charged at the manager, who retreated.
An off-duty officer was able to talk Brown down, who was later arrested and charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
As always, great job, Florida! [Photo via Mugshot Gainesville]
