The Nuthouse

Weekdays 3PM - 7PM

A Florida politician was busted with 10 grams of cocaine after chaotic traffic stop. According to the New York Post, police pulled a man who was speeding on a motorcycle. The man was, Palm Bay City Councilman Pete Filiberto. The councilman has two prior DWI busts, took off when the officer wasn’t looking. While he was attempting a U-turn, he lost control of his bike.

When the officer caught up with him, he could smell alcohol on Filiberto’s breath. Filiberto declined talking to the cop, did not blow and was taken into custody. The story doesn’t end there! After removing his shoes while in custody, cops found 10.6 grams of cocaine hidden in one of socks.

Filiberto was charged with cocaine possession, reckless driving, DUI, refusing a breath test and more. [Source: New York Post]

The 5 Most Dangerous Cities In Florida

We know how ominous “The most dangerous cities in Florida” sounds, but we think it’s important to know. The good news is out of a list of 100 dangerous cities in the U.S., only 5 in Florida made the list. Of those 5 cities, none of them cracked the top 50 in this updated study. A lot of people probably assume big metros like Miami, Tampa and Orlando made the list, but nope!

We got this information from Neighborhood Scout. Their analysis includes crimes reported by all agencies. They studied cities with 25,000 or more people, based on the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents. Data used for this research are:

  1. The number of violent crimes reported to the FBI to have occurred in each city.
  2. Projections of violent crime rates based on prior years’ data.
  3. The population of each city.

Florida is known for some of the country’s most bizarre crimes. And while all of them may be dangerous, they may not qualify as “violent.” Driving a golf cart naked down I75, assault with food, and similar “Florida Man” crimes don’t fall into the FBI category.
