Florida man wildly swings sword at jogger in fight over trash
He’s Florida’s garbage guard.
An Oakland Park man attacked a jogger with a sword in an attempt to protect a plastic dump cart that had been thrown out in the trash, police said Monday.
The big stink started July 15 when the runner stumbled upon a pile of garbage in front of a house, and decided to grab the black heavy-duty wagon, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
That’s when the rabble-rouser got upset — because he wanted the cart.
The two “exchanged words” but the jogger took the item anyway. When he got home, he realized the litter-lover had followed him, cops said.
Video shows the junk-diver unsheathing a sword and swinging it at the jogger.
But the runner isn’t thrown off — and ducks the blows while keeping a hold on the cart.
When he tells his attacker the fight is being filmed, the waste-watcher strides off, sword and sheath in hand.
Moments later, a woman who cops think knows the suspect, can be seen coming back and dragging the cart away, while flinging insults at the runner.
Police are asking for help finding the sword-swinger or the woman.
