City police charged a 25-year-old Fort Pierce man with four counts of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle and one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon â€” all charges without intent to kill â€” after he allegedly tried to run down four people with a pickup truck and pointed a rifle at the head of one.
According to the arrest report, Erick Lee Blanton was visiting a home in the 400 block of Sunrise Drive early Sunday morning when he challenged another man to an arm-wrestling contest and lost. The winner of the match told officers that Blanton then became upset.
Oh, and Blanton also held the shot-gun barrel to the head of his opponent.
We’re running short on time and patience for Florida morons this morning. This should provide at least a few minutes of laughter at work this morning.
