Five Best July 4th Florida Arrests

Ah, the Fourth of July. Fireworks, hot dogs, family, and 'MERICA, dammit. It's fun. But if you're in Florida, it's also dangerous. Down here, we look for illegal fireworks (that would be anything that flies through the air or explodes), and often we have too much fun take shit too far and run afoul of the law.

So before you and your uncle throw back a few cold ones and drive your lawnmower through the city, sparklers dangling from your mouth, read this list. And don't, for the love of LeBron, replicate any of these antics on Friday.

Here are your top five weird Fourth of July Florida arrests.

Enjoy the holiday, folks.
