LARGOS, Fla. — Authorities arrested a Florida man after he allegedly posed as country music star Jason Aldean and swindled a mentally handicapped woman out of cash. He also allegedly convinced her to have sex with him. Largos police arrested Daniel Michael Farris, 27, on Tuesday, according to records from the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. He faces charges of scheming to defraud a person of less than $20,000 and grand theft. Police said Farris pretended to be Aldean on Facebook and also posed as a friend of Aldean’s. “Allegedly, Farris would collect the funds by telling the victim Jason Aldean loved her, but was on tour and his friend needed money,” WFLA reported. Farris got $230 from the woman, according to an affidavit obtained by WFLA, and asked her to give him $2,000. He admitted to taking the cash, officers said in the affidavit, and said he used the money to fuel his addiction to prescription pills. He remained jailed Saturday morning.
Scummy move all around, glad this guys going to have to serve some time more likely than not since it sounds like they caught him red handed, but I want to make something abundantly clear. This guy knows he’s going to have to face time in prison and he’s probably already accepted that, but I bet he probably thinks he’s gonna be the cool cat in the state locked up with a gangster story about how he impersonated a relatively famous country singer and duped a girl out of money and sex. That girl was mentally challenged, bro. None of that shit counts. Guy probably thinks mighty of himself like he pulled off the disguise of the century even though if you take almost any normal pudgy white guy with short hair and a deep enough voice can say they look like so and so country singer. Mix in the fact that you’re swindling someone that probably has the mental capacity of a 13 year old, even I could probably trick her into thinking I’m Jason Aldean and I’m Chinese. It’s one thing if you duped a rich smart cultured woman, but he went low ball as shit and picked a mentally challenged person and cheated her out of a couple hundred bucks. Some people might not think this matters and all since he’s probably going to prison regardless, but sometimes its how you dress the story that makes all the difference.
P.s- Its always Pinellas County. Like how in the Town almost 90% of bank robbery crimes committed are by people from Charlestown. Well the most absurd, lewd, or cooky criminal stories are for the most times coming out of Pinellas County.
TEMPLE TERRACE, Fla. – A viewer took video when a fight broke out at Publix in Temple Terrace. Jessica Jordan was at Publix, and grabbed her camera phone when the fight broke out. Jordan said the fight started when an older gentleman was being loud, obnoxious, and rude to deli employees. Other shoppers took offense and exchanged words with him. The viral video shows it ended in a group brawl with people being chased around the deli and out of the store. Publix released an official statement: “An altercation occurred involving our customers. A couple of our associates placed themselves in harm’s way attempting to break it up. Fortunately, no injuries occurred. The safety and well-being of our associates and customers is our first priority. We’re very disappointed the incident escalated as it did, but thankful no one was injured.” WATCH in the video player HERE
What in the world is going on here? Are we in some ravaging third world country or something? Look I know Florida is a fucking strange place to be with some heavy crime ridden areas that don’t always seem the friendliest. Pinellas County, Sistrunk, Overtown, there’s bad areas all over the place. I’ve never been to Temple Terrace, but its close to the water in Tampa where some nicer things happen and if not there’s at least a ton of strip clubs there so I feel like things can’t be all that bad over there. What I do know is that Publix should be a safe haven. This type of behavior is unacceptable at the Pub. And why the fuck is it at the Deli counters always? Last we saw of a Publix brawl was in fucking Baldwin Park! There’s million dollar real estate in that area! There should never be any fighting in a place where rich people live! But it always seems to happen around the deli counter. Maybe people are just getting too impatient for their pub sub and then tempers flair? I don’t know what it is but either way, I better not see a god damn Publix brawl for the rest of 2015. It’s a place of civility, people! Its a place where shopping is suppose to be a mother fucking pleasure!
