August 20th, 2019: Ecstasy Pills, Florida Man Style
Ecstasy has been on and off a popular drug; known to give you a care-free attitude and to make you happy. While most well-known among ravers and party-goers, the drug can be popular among other groups. Apparently, that includes Florida Man.
On August 20th, 2019, a Florida Man was arrested for possession of ecstasy. He only had five pills and they were found hidden inside his air vent at home. This was found as they were responding to a call for an overdose at the location. In addition to tablets, police found a powder that was identified as a dangerous drug known as Fentnyl.
Okay, a little bit of drugs isn’t that far out of the normal and wouldn’t normally make a Florida Man story but this was a first for the police department. Seizing drugs with shapes or logos isn’t too uncommon, it is a method of branding. But the police say they have never found drugs in the shape of Florida Man’s pills. They were all shaped like Donald Trump’s head with a stamped Trump NL on them.
Florida Man was arrested for drug possession. We really hope that was the last Donald Trump pills out there, we don’t want that going to the orange man’s head.
August 20th, 2016: Florida Man and the Alligators
Florida Man August 20 is quite well acquainted with alligators. If you have read some of our past days you probably have seen at least one Florida Man story involving alligators. Well this one isn’t as wild as the drive by alligatoring we covered previously but it is definitely a tale of a Florida Man.
A Florida Man was arrested on August 20th, 2016 for hitting an 8-year-old. Now that by itself is just plain wrong but what made this case even worse was that Florida Man then threatened to feed the boy to alligators.
For those who are worried about the kid, he is fine. He recovered from being hit. As for the alligators? It was completely made up. No actual alligators were around and Florida Man was using it as an empty threat.
August 20th, 2020: The Stolen Winning Ticket

Either way, if you are going to steal lottery tickets, you need to be quite careful where you try to cash the winning ticket.
Florida Man had one of the winning tickets, but he wasn’t too careful about where he cashed it in. He decided it would be a good idea to take the winning ticket to the same store that he stole it from. Staff from the store called the police and they took him to jail.
All of this was not over a major winning ticket. It was over a ticket that was only worth $30.
