Drunk & Disorderly American Style

In the interest of fairness I bring you Michael J. Nadeau, 46. When attempting to check out at the Gainesville, Florida Sam's Club Nadeau was so intoxicated he couldn't manage to get his membership card out of his wallet. When the manager attempted to help him the drunken man attacked. Police were, of course, called and the situation escalated. Before it was over Nadeau had fled police, attempted to run down an officer, hit a police car and a fence, led a chase to his home and fled again, on foot. He is charged with: attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, trespassing, hindering a 911 call, burglary, battery, leaving the scene of a crash, fleeing and attempting to elude, and DUI. And they are probably still thinking up a few more. Congrats Mr. Nadeau, you put the croc bitten Aussie to shame. Go USA!

Gainsville is in Southern Georgia not Florida. Really, ask The Mouse.

Don't they have WalMarts in ALL these places? The Gainesville Sun that the link is for serves Broward and Palm Beach counties, in central eastern Florida. So, Gainesville, FL is where the story's from. Broward Co is home to Ft. Lauderdale, of spring break fame. They also have a pretty nice jail (at least they did in the mid-'70's, when I was a brief guest a couple times). Tropical weather and MadDog (MD-20) just don't mix. Too bad I hadn't discovered Margaritas by then. :sick:

Folks, let me give you a geography lesson. The state of Georgia is north of the state of Florida. There is some arbitrary, geopolitical line between the two that, for some reason, is too far north thus falsely showing several counties and cities to be in Florida when, in fact, they are part and parcel of Georgia. The simple way to look at it is; anything from Ocala north is Southern Georgia. You'll note that Tallahassee is including in this segment which makes the rest of the state that much better.

Tomorrow we'll discuss the difference between Florida and Northern Cuba.
