Police Arrest Man Despite His Excellent "Fighting Is What Redneck People Do" Excuse

Although one might think that it would be an ironclad legal defense, police in Martin County, Florida nonetheless arrested a man for getting drunk, shooting his lawnmower in his front yard, and then fighting with his son:

After being cuffed and placed in a cruiser, Wach asked why he was being arrested, according to a Martin County Sheriff’s Office report. After being provided with an explanation by a deputy, Wach claimed that he “shoots in the yard all the time.”

And, as for fighting with his 18-year-old son, Wach remarked that, “fighting is what redneck people do.”
