Florida Man Throws Chair At Mailman Because He Didn’t Have Any Mail For Him
Police arrested an Ocala man Monday accused of throwing broken furniture at a postal carrier because he didn’t have any mail for him.
Via Ocala reports:
Aaron Bernard Smith, 27, faces charges of burglary, battery and criminal mischief, according to an Ocala Police Department report.
The mailman told Officer Kyle Drawdy that Smith approached the driver’s side of his truck in the 1600 block of Northeast 17th Street. The postal carrier said he tried explaining to Smith that the reason he did not receive any mail was because there was none for him.
The mailman said Smith got angry and struck him with an open fist at least three times on the right arm.
Smith, he said, then walked away from the vehicle, picked up a broken chair or stool and threw it at the mail truck, which is a 1991 Grumman LLV. It struck a left rear panel of the truck.
Drawdy found Smith, and he admitted to the incident, according to the report. A witness told the officer she saw Smith strike the mailman and throw the furniture at the truck.
Court records show Smith has been taken for mental health evaluation under the Baker Act twice, once in May, and once in January 2013.
You can’t be serious!
