Florida Man Watches Documentary on Hitler, Fires Gun Into Ceiling

An Okaloosa County man decided to get completely wrecked on booze and then watch a documentary about Adolf Hitler.

Because, Okaloosa County.

However, the documentary got him so fired up, he decided to get his handgun and start shooting it randomly inside his apartment. He also pointed the gun at his fiancée.

Oh that Hitler. Still causing trouble after all these years.

According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, 28-year-old Joseph Ryan Dobson's fiancée claims he watched the documentary on the Nazi leader, and when it was finished, he pointed a gun at her and a friend.

Dobson then pointed the gun upwards and fired two shots into the ceiling inside The Cedars condominium apartment.

When cops showed up to the apartment, they found a completely trashed Dobson laying on the bathroom floor.

Police arrested Dobson and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and discharging a firearm while under the influence of alcohol.

He is scheduled to appear in court July 9.

It's unclear if Dobson was so super inspired by Hitler, or so super angry at Hitler, that he had to point a gun at people and then shoot the roof.

Either way, if Hitler set out to leave a legacy where people get crazy shitfaced and then fire a gun into the air like an old Western movie Mexican bandit then, mission accomplished, der Führer!
