Florida the rules are different here Chapter CLI
Unhappy with the price of a McDonald's soft drink, a South Florida teenager does a pepper spray drive by. What gives this story that 'only in Florida', is the fact that the man with the pepper spray was wearing women's clothes at the time. I wouldn't be buying the Gender dysphoria excuse if I was a juror at this teen's trial. Don't you just love the Sunshine state?

A teenager has been arrested and charged as the trigger man -- although at the time he was dressed like a woman -- behind a drive-by pepper-spraying at an Oakland Park McDonald's, investigators announced on Thursday.
The arrest came hours after a blue Toyota Solara with five people inside, including two cross-dressing males, pulled into the drive-through at 3073 W. Oakland Park Blvd. just before 4:30 p.m. They wanted a 69-cent drink on Wednesday, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.
Clerk Shade Jones, of Fort Lauderdale, told them there was no such thing on the menu.
The driver got out of the way, and a 17-year-old from Fort Lauderdale leaned forward from the rear middle seat and aimed pepper spray at the drive-through window, according to a BSO report.
The teenager was arrested at 2 a.m. on Thursday, according to arrest documents. He is charged with two counts of simple battery, BSO spokesman Mike Jachles said.
''These drive-through workers are trying to make a living working hard, and they don't deserve to get pepper-sprayed,'' Jachles said.
Four adults also were in the car, including three women and another man dressed as a woman, Jachles said. On Thursday, none of the others was charged, he said.
