Floridians Serious About Watering Plants. Really Serious.

With all the focus on the idiot in Alaska, we’ve forgotten what truly matters around here: The idiots in Florida.

A Hudson man fired a gun and chased his neighbor with a machete after an argument over watering plants, authorities said.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said Peter Petraglia, 62, argued twice with his neighbor over the plants on Tuesday. After the second argument, Petraglia went into his house and came out carrying a .38-caliber pistol and a machete, deputies said.
Pasco County sheriff’s deputies said Petraglia threatened to shoot his neighbor if he didn’t stop arguing with him. He then fired a shot into the ground and followed the neighbor back to his house, where he hit the front door with the machete, deputies said.
Petraglia was arrested and charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and discharging a firearm in public. He was being held without bail set on the attempted murder charge.

Now, was he mad because he didn’t water the plants, or because he did water the plants? Details matter.
