Is it possible for something to be too Florida? A woman with a remarkably incriminating name was arrested last month for firing a missile into a vehicle that was occupied at the time. Florida scale. Officially. Broken.
Crystal Metheney (yeah, believe it), 36, was booked by the Polk County Sheriff's Department on Cinco de Mayo for shooting the missile into the car. This is a violation of Florida statute 790.19, which prohibits certain behavior like: "Shooting into or throwing deadly missiles into dwellings, public or private buildings, occupied or not occupied; vessels, aircraft, buses, railroad cars, streetcars, or other vehicles."
In other words, it expects people to exercise common sense. What Metheney did was horrible, but can we revisit the Lake Wales, Fla. native's name for a second? You could argue that it's actually the bigger crime.
Nothing more to say other than this is Florida simply being Florida.
