Lee Lewis Discovers That Fake Bazookas Are Apparently Illegal in Florida
Lee Lewis -- the hearse owner with exotic leather outfits who's accused of bringing traffic to a standstill on the Palmetto Expressway a few weeks ago after allegedly leaving his body-hauler loaded with fake guns and explosives on the side of the road -- has had another felony charge added to the list.
According to the Miami-Dade county clerk, Lewis, a 28-year-old Hollywood resident, has been charged with fake bomb possession after originally being charged with possession of ammunition by a felon, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia as well as a pair of other misdemeanors.
His bond for the hoax bomb possession charge was set at $7,500, on top of the $37,500 bond already set on the other charges, according to Miami-Dade's corrections department.
A judge had originally set his bond at less than $15,000 at his first court appearance, but the judge raised that after an objection by the state.
During that hearing, Lewis was ordered to undergo a mental-health evaluation after letting the judge know, "Everything is getting dropped, and I'm suing everybody."
That's when the Pulp checked out Lewis' MySpace page, which stated he works as a "Fireplay entertainer and fetish model" and would like to meet Quentin Tarantino as well as "a pair of sadistic, yet playful and sweet Asian girls that want to dominate and be dominated."
Lewis' criminal history includes battery, grand theft, and drug possession.
According to the Miami-Dade clerk, Lewis is due in court at 9 a.m. August 1.
