As a current Floridian, I’m proud to say that most of the best news in the country originates right down here in the Sunshine State.
Meet Leosvel Cordova Parrado of Marathon, Florida. After leaving a party last week “allegedly” intoxicated, he became a bit irate with his girlfriend and son, and he demanded that they go back home. Once back at home, Parrado grabbed his girl’s wallet and took the $750 inside, prompting his better half to call the cops. Then, things got weird.
Courtesy of NBC Miami:
During the ride to jail, a deputy noticed a strange sound in his backseat and saw Parrado chewing on a mouth full of cash, authorities said. More cash was found in his underwear where deputies believe he hid it. The deputy pulled over and tried to save some of the cash but only $277 was recovered from the $750 that his girlfriend said he stole. Parrado has been charged with robbery, battery, grand theft, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence.
So sadly, this story didn’t exactly have a happy ending. But I hear Mr. Parrado is now considering vegetarianism, due to his newfound love of green food. Share your comments below, and try not to eat them afterwards.
"Outstanding. . . . Jason Mattera has courage that I wish other reporters had."
"Mattera names names—and frauds, schemes and grifters to boot."
"Crapitalism blows the lid off crony capitalism."
Fox has history in broadcasting that spans two decades. From his early days as an FM host and club DJ in the mid-90′s to his later experiences in political talk radio, he has always had a knack for combining topical news with his love for popular culture. Those experiences culminated in his position as executive producer for several radio shows featured in the TALKERS Heavy 100. Originally from New York, Fox has made the great pilgrimage down to sunny south Florida.
