When The Headline Starts With 'Florida Man,' You Know The Crime Will Be Bonkers

The Sunshine State has completely crazy crimes. Here are the 11 best headlines.

Maybe too much sunshine isn't good for the brain. Maybe being near the perpetual happiness machine that is Disney World causes rebellion. Maybe there's something in the oranges.

Whatever the reason, just what is up with criminals in Florida? 

Crimes and oddities allegedly committed there are so whacky, so improbable, they sound completely made up. Try "Florida Man Escapes From Prison Custody to Buy Beer; Sneaks Back Before Anyone Notices" or "Florida Man Burns Down House While Cooking Fried Chicken in His Underwear."

These aren't just occasional examples. There is so much random (alleged!) crime committed by Floridians, two Twitter accounts collect crazy headlines that include "Florida Man" or "Florida Woman."

Let's check up on what the good people of Florida get up to with these top 11 classic Florida crime stories from the @_FloridaMan and @_Flor1daWoman Twitter accounts:
