Deputies Arrest Florida Man Dressed as Pirate for Firing Muskets at Cars

A lot of weird things happen in Florida, and we’re here every week to wrap up the weirdest. This week: pirates, indians, a homeless woman who wanted to pass on her homeless skills to the children, and an astounding theory on Bigfoot.

Keys Man Arrested for Pirating 
Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate’s life for Jamie Spering. The man makes his living as a professional pirate entertainer (in addition to truck driving). Of course, pirating is a highly illegal activity, so it makes sense that Spering would find himself on the wrong side of the law, much like the character he plays. 

Monday afternoon, Spering met up with two lady friends at the Sunset Grille in Marathon to watch the sunset. Spering was in full pirate regalia and had two muskets, a dagger, a knife, and a sword on him. Then trio decided to walk out toward the Seven Mile Bridge for some fun.

Spering shot one round from a musket into the water and then turned and fired another at cars. Don’t worry — they were only black-powder rounds, not real ammunition, but it suffices to say that a man dressed as a pirate and firing a gun toward a road still had a lot of drivers shivering their timbers (in fact, one took a cell-phone video that was handed over to police).
