Our third round of “Florida’s Finest” is nothing short of, well, interesting. Seems like we had a Need for Speed the past week, to say the least. Often times I wonder if there will ever be a week where I struggle to find some weird things that happened in the past weeks, not sure if that time will ever come. Enjoy!
Florida man Steven Rembert was arrested for bigamy after his second wife found out about his third wife on Facebook. Orange county records show that Rembert had been married 3 times but never gotten a single divorce. Some guys can barely handle 1 wife, let alone 3.

A home in Brevard County has had two vehicles drive into their home in the last three months. The first culprit was a 2015 Honda Civic driven by Ashleigh Tucker of Melbourne in December. The second was a Chevy Cobalt that entered the house through the same window, it then continued to barrel through the living room and into the kitchen.
A homeless man in the Keys stole a backhoe and got into the slowest police chase I’ve ever seen. Carl Blahnik, 59, drove back and forth on the bridge while deputies tried to pull him over. Apparently he’s had some experience operating one of these things because he had some excellent maneuvering.
Ivan Romero, 42, pleads guilty in federal court to helping steal about $1.5 million in cigarettes form a Warehouse. He’s looking at 15 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. Nicotine is either getting stronger or Florida Men are getting crazier.
A 13-year-old girl was arrested in Pinellas Park after police said she stole a car, crashed it and fled the scene of the accident. She was seen by an officer when she blew through a red light in a minivan, when the cop tried to pull her over she didn’t stop. Her joy ride ended when she crashed the stolen minivan into a brick wall. Looks like she couldn’t wait two more years for her permit…
- Marshmallow + RC Helicopter + Alligators
A Florida Man posted a YouTube video of himself feeding alligators with an RC Helicopter. His bait of choice was not a chicken thigh or a delicious bass, but instead, marshmellows. Not sure how much research this guy did on alligators but he claims it to be an experiment, not a prank. I’m sure Florida Fish and Wildlife will be discussing his scientific data soon enough…
