Welcome to Monday. Are you working? Sorry if you're working. Slack for a bit and check this out.

FRIDAY, JUNE 30:

A St. Pete cop was arrested in a prostitution sting after another officer saw him pick up a hooker in his personal vehicle on his day off. Always read the entire schedule.

A man was arrested for DUI in Lakeland after leaving the road to try to drive up the sidewalk stairs at the Lake Mirror Promenade. That's, uh, not how you do that.

SATURDAY, JULY 1:

Among the new legislation that went into effect on the first of the month was a law that permanently gives boaters a break on their registration if they buy an emergency position indicating radio beacon, or EPIRB.

SUNDAY, JULY 2:

Rick Scott, the governor of Florida and also maybe grown-up Bat Boy, is worth nearly $150 million. Don't let anybody tell you that crime doesn't pay.

And finally, a dude in Jacksonville had to undergo emergency surgery after he sat on a gun that was on the driver's seat of his car and shot himself in the crotch. On the bright side, he won't be spawning.
