2018 Leesburg Bikefest Weekend Arrests

This Monday marks the end of Leesburg Bikefest (known simply as “bahk fast” by the locals). It involves motorcycles, alcohol, ass & titties, hair metal bands, and lots and lots of cheap beer. Doctors and lawyers come from all over to cosplay as renegade bikers. Locals show up and party. Dealers show up and sell meth and cocaine. Vendors sell expensive cheap beer. Hippies and locals sell weed. Old hair metal bands go on stage with oxygen tanks. Bikini contests take place. Copious amounts of alcohol and carnival food are sold. Bikes ride up and down Main Street. It’s pretty fun.

Needless to say, the arrest affidavits are always interesting during these times. Here’s just about everything from Lake County this past weekend, put into a very brief format (City – Charges – Extra details). It’s pretty sloppily written, but there were a shitload of arrests and we’re short staffed. Enjoy!

Tiger Woods blames DUI arrest on prescription medications

Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday morning for driving under the influence, but hours after his release from a jail near his Florida home issued a statement saying “alcohol was not involved.”

In the statement, released through his publicist Monday evening, Woods blamed his arrest on prescription drugs.

“What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications,” Woods said in the statement. “I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.”

Woods, 41, had a fourth surgery on his back April 20. He has played only twice this year, the last time when he withdrew from a February event in Dubai, citing the bad back.

But Monday night, Mark Steinberg, Woods’s longtime agent, would not say whether the mix of medications Woods cited was related to his back problems.

“He wanted to clarify the situation,” Steinberg said by phone. “But there’s nothing further to provide right now.” Full Story »

Florida Man gets a DUI in his Motorized Wheelchair

They see me rollin’…

Meet Ronny Scott Hicks. Age 54. Extensive DUI record. This man was arrested on a bridge in Palm Bay and charged with a DUI… in his motorized wheelchair. This happened in the middle of the night, when the freaks come out.

According to the police, he was blocking several lanes of traffic on this bridge, and reeked of alcohol. After refusing to take a field sobriety test he was arrested. These cops also offered to get him treatment for the mysterious head wound that he had wrapped up, but he refused help.

With two DUI’s in 2013 and one in 1998, this man is no stranger to boozed up joy rides. His past convictions don’t mention if he was driving a wheelchair or not though…

There exists a $5,000 bond, so if you need a great chauffeur who works hard even when he has an open, leaking wound on his head, release this man and hire him immediately. This is truly a dedicated driver.

Ronny Scott Hicks was drunk driving in his wheelchair and blocking traffic.

So for today’s WTF Florida we celebrate Ronny Hicks for blocking traffic in his motorized wheelchair on a busy bridge. And of course he was piss drunk, how else could this happen?
