Of course I figured something crazy would happen in Florida over a holiday weekend and, according to cops, that took place when a 27-year-old Florida Man hit his mom with a corn cob at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. I know, it’s not the craziest Florida Man story ever, but it illustrates what makes Florida so great. You just never know what’s coming and that keeps me fascinated by this state that somehow figures out how to entertain us on a daily basis.
A man in Pasco County is behind bars after deputies said he hit his mother in the head with a corn cob.
The incident reportedly happened at a home in Zephyrills around 2:00 a.m. on Sunday. According to deputies, Cody Cummins, 27, threw a corn cob at his mother, hitting her in the head. Deputies say the victim was hurt but did not have any physical injuries, according to an arrest report.
Cummins reportedly left the scene but was located and arrested. He’s charged with domestic battery. No word on what led up to the attack.
I assume you didn’t think this was the first time Cummins has been arrested. There was a Failure to Appear in 2017 and a suspended license arrest in 2018. Pretty typical Florida Man stuff here. There was also a 3 year, 8 month burglary stint in the state prison system back in 2008.
