#WTW: Florida Man Pretends He’s a Giant Bird; Arrested at Water Park
This story made me laugh.
Thirty-six year old Richard Campagna, of Winter Haven, Florida, was arrested at the Legoland Water Park and charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
According to The Ledger, deputies were called to the park after Campagna, who appeared drunk (SHOCKER!), refused to leave the park after being told to do so by the water park staff.
What happened next is classic white trash theater.
Instead of cooperating with the deputies, Campagna dove into the park’s lazy river, splashed a police officer with water, and squawked like a fucking bird as several children watched. After attempts to subdue Campagna with a Taser failed, he was eventually apprehended by several officers.
When asked his name following detainment, Campagna promptly replied, “Pterodactyl.”
Gotta love Florida.
