Florida man struck by car while attempting ‘In My Feelings’ challenge
It was only a matter of time before the internet’s latest viral dance challenge ended with someone getting run over.
And, of course, it happened in Florida.
Florida man Jaylen Norwood, 22, was hit by a car while his friend filmed a video of him dancing in the street in Boynton Beach, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Norwood uploaded a video on Instagram account of him participating in the latest viral trend, the #InMyFeelings Challenge. Also called the Shiggy Challenge or the Keke Challenge, the dance craze often involves drivers or passengers hopping out of moving vehicles to shimmy in the streets to Drake’s latest song, “In My Feelings.”
According to the caption of his video, Norwood had planned to leap onto the hood of an approaching car — presumably driven by another friend. But after his flip flop slid across a puddle, he fell to his knees — right before the oncoming vehicle slammed into him.
A young man knifed himself to death in the mistaken believe that the jacket he was wearing was ‘stab-proof’.
Jordan Easton, 22, from Thornaby, Teesside, was sitting in the kitchen of a friend’s house when he decided to test the lifesaving properties of his top on August 23 last year.
Teesside Coroner’s Court heard Easton died of a single stab wound to the chest after being rushed to the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton.
Man Arrested After Bringing Meth To Police Station To Have It Tested By Cops
ONLY IN FLORIDA
A man concerned that he had been rooked by a methamphetamine dealer contacted Florida police and asked them to test his drugs and “press charges” against the dealer if he had “been given the wrong narcotics,” according to an arrest report.
On Tuesday afternoon, Douglas Peter Kelly, 49, called the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and told a deputy that he had a “violent reaction” after smoking what he thought was “speed.” Kelly told cops that he believed that the drug in question was actually Flakka, the notorious synthetic stimulant.
After speaking with cops, Kelly drove to the sheriff’s office “because he wished to have the illegal narcotics tested.” Kelly subsequently provided cops with a piece of aluminum foil that contained a “clear, crystal-like substance.”
A field test of the substance provided by Kelly resulted in a “positive reaction for the presence of methamphetamine,” police reported. While perhaps relieved that his dealer was not cheating him, Kelly’s mood likely changed when police arrested him on a felony narcotics possession charge.
Seen above, Kelly was booked into the county jail, from which he was released last night after posting $2500 bond.
