The Polk County, Florida Sheriff’s Office is trying to identify a man who was caught on surveillance video attacking another customer at a liquor store in Lakeland. The alleged attack happened at the Publix Liquor store around 12:30 p.m. Saturday. According to deputies, the attack stemmed from the suspect getting upset that the victim didn’t thank him for holding the door open. The victim, who is seen in video released by the sheriff’s office wearing a tan-colored hat, told deputies he walked into the liquor store while the suspect held the door open. The suspect, who is seen wearing a black and gray shirt and a black hat, then reportedly asked, “you don’t say ‘thank you’ to people who hold the door open for you?” The victim said he responded, saying “thank you.” After jawing back and forth, the suspect quickly approached the victim and started attacking. The surveillance video shows the suspect repeatedly hit the victim, knocking the man’s hat off. Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to call Detective Ervin with the sheriff’s office.

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
A mermaid "documentary" once fooled so many people that the U.S. government had to issue a statement. In 2013, Animal Planet aired Mermaids: The New Evidence, a documentary—or rather, a mockumentary—that "proved" the half-human-half-fish beings exist. And while the program was fake, plenty of the 3.6 million viewers that watched believed that the fictional claims were real. In fact, so many people were fooled that the U.S. government's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a statement on its website addressing the confusion, saying: "Mermaids: The New Evidence is just entertainment. No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found."

On second thought, it may have been a bad idea to post those surfing selfies. A Bronx man on vacation in Hawaii was arrested by agents with the state attorney general’s office Friday morning — and charged with violating the state’s strict rules that tourists observe a 14-day quarantine after arriving. The giveaway? Officials say the tourist, 23-year-old Tarique Peters, posted incriminating photos of himself sunning and carrying a surfboard around the beach on his Instagram account. Peters landed in Honolulu on Monday and is accused of immediately venturing off to see the sights. “He allegedly left his hotel room the day he arrived and traveled many places using public transportation,” the news release scolded. Local sleuths realized he’d Instagrammed a selfie from Bryant Park just a week ago, pegged him for a new arrival, and then ratted him out to authorities. Now his #newchallenge may be posting his $4,000 bail. (https://bit.ly/2Tc31Qe)
