Here we go again. Crazy crap happening in Florida, better known as "The Freak State", as one radio station puts it.
Here is an article from a local newspaper.....
JACKSONVILLE, FL -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating a bizarre crash on the Southside involving a woman driving a car full of children and a bicyclist.
The incident happened on San Pablo Road, just north of Beach Boulevard Sunday night.
Witnesses in the car told police the unidentified female driver deliberately ran into a woman riding a bike on the side of the road.
Witnesses say the woman jumped out of her Honda and hopped in the back seat of a car whose driver had stopped to help the injured bicyclist.
The driver managed to get the woman out of his car, but she ran to another car, yanked the driver out, got behind the wheel and smashed into her Honda.
One of the driver's at the scene told First Coast News reporter Kyle Meenan, "Three young children got out and they were running around screaming and everything!"
Fortunately, a 14 year old Boy Scout riding in the Honda helped to get all the kids out of the car before the woman rammed it.
Witnesses said the woman had been babysitting the Boy Scout and another child, and the two other children in the car belonged to her.
Witnesses say the woman then drove a car into a fence, got out, and ran in circles while taking off her clothes.
It took several officers to subdue her, according to witnesses.
The suspect has been identified as 34 year old Holly Kay Highfield. Officers arrested her and took her to Shands Jacksonville for an evaluation.
She is facing charges of aggravated battery/use of a deadly weapon, carjacking, DUI, and DUI with damage to property.
The woman on the bicycle has been identified as 55 year old Cathy Guiry of Jacksonville. She is recovering at the Mayo Clinic.
So, this is just one reason Florida is lovingly known as "The Freak State."
