Angry Florida Man Pries Open Steak ‘n Shake Drive-Thru Window

Ronald Burns

Oviedo (WTFF) – A man in Seminole County was upset about a supposedly undercooked burger at Steak ‘n Shake, so he pried open a drive-thru window to yell at the employees.

Ronald Burns ordered a burger at the Steak ‘n Shake on Red Bug Lake Road in Oviedo, Saturday. The Oviedo Mall is across the street.

At 62 he should be old enough to control his temper, but this is Florida Man, so we can just assume he has the emotional intelligence of a 5-year-old.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – Surveillance video captured what appears to be a hotel guest punching and knocking out a valet, and the employee said the physical confrontation sparked over parking costs.

The incident took place Tuesday at the Ocean Sky Hotel, located at 4060 Galt Ocean Drive, on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Surveillance video from the incident shows a man discussing something with valet attendant Rodolfo Rodriguez.

Speaking with 7News about the incident, the valet said the guest decided he did not want to pay to park. “He told me, ‘I’ve got a friend visiting me,’ and I told him, ‘It’s $18 for the parking,’” he said.

Moments later, the guest is seen punching the valet’s face, knocking him out. “Boom! Punched my face,” said Rodriguez.

Rodriguez is seen lying unconscious for about 20 seconds, and while passed out, the guest places the valet’s arms behind his back, in a manner that a police officer would when detaining someone.

The valet then regained consciousness. “I challenged the guy. I asked him, ‘What the hell are you doing?’” he said.

But he would not get an answer from the guest.

According to hotel staff, the man identified himself as a former Atlanta-area police officer. Employees identified him as John Kiernan of New Smyrna Beach.

“He was just angry,” said Rodriguez.
