You all are not putting real FL men in this thread.

Just to show you FL man doesn't always live in a trailer park...

Mayor of Port Richey FL

"Dale Massad, who was elected mayor in 2015, was arrested by the officers from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and accused of practicing medicine without a license. He now also faces two charges of attempted murder."

He shot back at the officers when they tried to serve the warrant.

Florida Man codified:

Alligators, Drugs, And Theft, Oh My! New List Shows Top 10 'Florida Man' Stories

From this, the Injury Claim Coach's team created the F.L.O.R.I.D.A. man Scoring System to "quantify the "Florida Man"-ness of any news article appearing on the web."

In their system, nearly every "Florida Man" story contains one of the following categories: Firearms (or other weapons), Locations, Objects, Reasons for Arrest, Injuries, Drugs and alcohol, and Animals

And don't forget Sex Scandals. Just look at the shape of the state, that's a scandal in itself. I would post a pic, but the mods would probably delete.

I used to go to downtown Chicago (the loop) for work in the 80's and the crazy people would wander around and talk to themselves. Nowadays so many people use bluetooth headsets to talk on their phone they are a little harder to identify.

Floridaman robs store dressed as Spiderman
CASSELBERRY, Fla. -- A Florida man is behind bars after robbing a store disguised as Spiderman.

Deputies said a man showed up unmasked to a Winn-Dixie Wine and Spirits Store in Casselberry, FL on Jan 2nd.

Police said Edward Wilburn stole nearly $150 in liquor and $420 in Newport Cigarettes.

Wilburn was arrested back in January.

Wilburn is a repeat offender, according to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

Floridaman, British only by birth, Arrested Down Under:

Briton arrested after fleeing Australia on a jetski, armed with crossbow

A wanted British man has attempted to flee Australia on a jetski, travelling almost 150km (93 miles) across the Torres Strait while armed with a crossbow.

The 57-year-old man is subject to an outstanding warrant for drug-related charges in Western Australia.

The man almost made it to Saibai Island, in the Torres Strait Islandsarchipelago, which is part of Australia, though just 4km south of Papua New Guinea. He was arrested on the mudflats on the eastern side of the island.

OK.

It looks like I'll have to do all the heavy lifting around this thread:

Floridaman accused of being a fake doctor

Brooksville, Florida Police arrested a man in Florida accused of posing as a doctor and selling supplements from his double-wide mobile home.

Hernando County Deputies say 62-year-old Mike Fagan saw clients, sold vitamins, ordered blood work, and claimed to have a machine that treats cancer.

Floridaman accused of killing two, eating man’s face, believed he was ‘half-dog, half-man,’ doctor says

A former college student accused of fatally attacking a husband and wife in their Floridahome and gnawing on the man's face believed he was “half-dog, half-man,” a forensic psychologist said in a mental health report.

Austin Harrouff, 22, has been charged with killing John Stevens III, 59, and his wife Michelle Mishcon, 53, at their home in Martin County on Aug. 15, 2016. Investigators said that during the attacks, he bit Stevens' face while making growling sounds. The couple was beaten and stabbed during the bizarre attack in their garage.
