Naughty, Not Nice

A city-run Christmas parade in Florida was interrupted by a city employee, who yelled at the driver of a city truck in the parade for “taking his overtime for the last two years.” Officers saw the man open the door of the moving truck to argue with the driver, telling him to “Get out of the truck and I’ll whip your ass.” The unidentified employee “then slammed the door closed after removing the keys from the ignition of the truck (turning it off) and throwing the keys across the cab onto the opposite floorboard,” the resulting police report said. “This caused the parade to stop movement behind the city truck.” The employee was arrested for disorderly intoxication — his blood alcohol measured .266 percent — and assault. The city? Niceville. The man must appear in court, but not until after Christmas. (RC/Northwest Florida Daily News) ...Which might be enough time for him to sober up.
