Orlando & The Freakshow

Weekdays 6AM - 10AM

A Florida man was arrested after he robbed a man at gunpoint outside of a Wendy’s restaurant for not buying him any chicken nuggets.

The victim was approached by John Earl Taylor, 34, outside a Wendy’s as he was getting out of his car. Taylor asked him if he would buy him chicken nuggets but the victim said he he only had enough money for himself and walked inside the fast food restaurant.

As the man was leaving, Taylor came up to him again but this time he pointed a gun at the victim, and demanded his keys and gold chain. The victim gave up everything he had and Taylor then drove off in his car.

Detectives spotted the car the next day and a chase started but they eventually caught him after he crashed the vehicle.

Taylor was arrested on armed robbery/carjacking, fleeing/eluding police and driving with a suspended license.


7 Things To Know About Florida's New Noise in Cars Law

  • #1: The 25 feet rule.

    If someone 25 feet away can hear the music you have cranked up, you could get cited.

  • #2: Quiet zones.

    This law is specific to areas near homes, churches, schools and hospitals.

  • #3: Exemptions.

    If you’re a cop, fire truck or ambulance driver, you’re off the hook.

  • #4: Even if you're moving...

    It’s considered a nonmoving violation so your insurance rates won’t go up.

  • #5: It's not just music.

    They say even cell phone conversations could count just like a car radio, tape player, or compact disc player. Wait. Tape player? What year is this!?

  • #6: Enforcement begins soon.

    Looks like some agencies are ready to enforce… Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says they’re starting July 1.

  • #7: This law was done away with years ago.

    A decade ago this law was deemed unconstitutional by the Florida Supreme Court.  Will this bring on a new lawsuit? Time will tell.
