St. Johns County deputies arrested a woman after she bit a man’s fishing line and swam off with his lure, according to a police report.
Deputies were called to the St. Johns County Pier on Tuesday at approximately 6 p.m.
A fisherman told deputies that 22-year-old Alexandria Turner appeared to be intoxicated when she swam up to his fishing line and cursed him out.
She bit the line and swam away with the rigging, according to the police report.
When deputies asked Turner to come to the pier office where the fisherman had rented the pole, she became belligerent and refused to walk inside, the report said.
Deputies said Turner began creating a scene and upsetting the “sense of public norm at the pier” when they tried to take her into protective custody.
It was all pretty normal for Florida, up until that point. We hate seeing our people get arrested for silly things.
She refused to let deputies handcuff her and screamed, “I’m (expletive) naked!” several times, the report said.
Deputies arrested Turner on suspicion of disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence. Full Story »
Instead of finding crustaceans, a couple diving for lobster under a North Key Largo bridge found human bones.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that a man and woman were diving for lobster under the Card Sound Bridge that connects mainland Florida with the Florida Keys when they spotted a skull and several other bones.
They flagged down a Fish and Wildlife officer who was patrolling the area, and the officer called homicide detectives at the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office says detectives so far don’t know who the bones belonged to, how long they were there or what may have caused the person’s death.
The bones have been turned over to the medical examiner.
