We weren’t going to let 2021 end without one last ‘Florida Man’ story – and this one’s a doozy.
A Gainesville man is facing assault charges after wielding a flamethrower to settle a parking dispute.
Witnesses say 57-year-old Andre Adams sprayed the flamethrower at a car with three teenagers inside – and continued to shoot flames as they fled. Adams’ neighbor says it’s not the first time he’s pulled the stunt.
Believe it or not, it’s fully legal to own a flamethrower in most of the U.S., and they can be purchased for about $900.
Adams is facing three felony counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill.
