Florida Man Birthday October 27

A grenade was found in a truck driven by a Florida man driving with a strange mannequin

The incident took place in the Fragler area of ​​Florida. Florida sheriff’s deputies stopped a truck and found a grenade in it. The man driving the truck was carrying a clown mannequin in the passenger seat. Even though the sheriff’s deputies stopped the truck because of the license plate problem, the man carrying the grenade was arrested.

Video footage of the incident was shared by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office on Monday. The Dodge pickup truck driven by 65-year-old Louis Branson had problems with the license plate. In the Bunnell area, sheriff’s deputies pulled the truck over. A deputy sheriff found explosives while searching the inside of the truck.

According to the recordings in the video, the deputy sheriff who found the grenade said, “Come on! Is this real?” he asked the other deputy sheriffs. After discovering Branson’s grenade in a sealed tin can in the back of the truck, the deputy sheriff ordered Branson to get out of the truck.

Branson said he found the grenade in question three or four years ago. He stated that he wanted to keep the hand grenade he found while cleaning a veteran’s house as a souvenir. Melissa Morreale, spokeswoman for the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, said Branson did not know whether the grenade was active and had carried it in his toolbox for years.

At the request of the sheriff’s deputies, an explosive disposal team came to the area and conducted various examinations on the hand grenade, which was thought to be active. After X-raying the grenade, they destroyed it at a nearby secure facility before harming anyone.

Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly described Branson as “idiot” in a statement about the incident. He said he was very lucky that Branson didn’t kill himself or blow up a lot of things around with the truck. The details and video published about the incident justified the sheriff in this regard.

While the sheriff’s deputies were inspecting the truck, they found a life-size clown mannequin in addition to the grenade. In addition to these, they found two pipes. They suspected that the two pipes found might contain cocaine, marijuana and drug residue. That’s why they sent the pipes to the center for examination.

Morreale said he didn’t know what the clown mannequin was doing in the truck. It was something really crazy, she said, pointing out that the mannequin was human-sized. Additional research with Branson revealed that the man had an extensive criminal history in the states of Florida and Georgia.

Branson’s driver’s license expired in 2019. It was also discovered that Branson’s last known address was located in Palatka. Branson was charged with driving with an expired license, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of ammunition. He was arrested on $7,000 bail. It is unclear whether he has a lawyer.
