"Man Bites Dog"

FLORIDA MAN, NUDE AND COVERED IN MUD, ARRESTED FOR BITING POLICE DOG

Donald Watts, 38, was arrested in High Springs after police apprehended him rolling naked in a muddy ditch and making bird noises.

Action News Jacksonville reported that police were called to Southeast Brawley Terrace with reports that Watts was high on methamphetamine and acting erratically. While police were on the scene, a second 911 call was placed by a homeowner who said that a person was in his yard with a flashlight.

Deputies went to the complainant's home, where they spotted a flashlight being turned on and off and heard unusual noises. They investigated further and found Watts in the ditch, completely nude, pacing back and forth and making sounds with his mouth, according to Action News Jax.

When approached by police, Watts attempted to escape, hiding under the porch of a mobile home. After a brief standoff, he left his hiding place and engaged with police, punching one of the deputies several times, according to reports.

1. Don't get bitten by Florida Man.

They had to give the dog antibiotics because the guy bit him.

4. Lol, this wouldn't be happening with 2 feet of snow.

My theory, as one old person among many who make a lot of Florida pretty uneventful (great estate sales aside), is that Floridians aren't really crazier than others, just act out outside a lot more.

It's a rare day or even hour down here when someone can't roll naked in the mud in reasonable comfort. And 6 months a year alligators and poisonous snakes are probably the reason more people aren't proactively seeking comfort in muddy ditches.

8. Is "Watts" just an alias for "Gaetz"?
