Driver breaks legs of man who leaned on SUV
When a stranger leaned against his car, and then refused to move, a motorist became so angry he ran into the man's legs outside a laundry mat, authorities said.
The victim suffered multiple leg fractures as a result of the incident.
The incident began when the driver backed his vehicle into a parking space next to the laundry. The victim, 24-year-old Jose Garcia of Oneco, reportedly leaned on the truck, and didn't move when the driver yelled at him, the report said.
The driver revved his engine and backed up a bit, but the victim still refused to move. Then, according to the report, the driver pulled forward several feet before backing up rapidly. The vehicle jumped the curb, crushing both of the victim's legs. It continued reversing until it rammed into the wall of the laundry.
The victim was pinned against the building; he suffered fractures and cuts to both his legs below the knee and was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital.
The driver sped off. The laundry suffered between $2,500 and $3,500 in damage, the report said. Authorities are looking for the suspect vehicle. The suspect could face a felony charge of aggravated battery with a motor vehicle. Article here.

Janet Jackson loves sex with Jermain Dupri
Janet Jackson has revealed Jermaine Dupri is the best lover she's ever had. The sexy singer - who has been dating the record producer for more than five years - is overjoyed she has finally met someone who can cope with her high sex drive.
She said: "I feel like I finally met my match. In relationships, it was always the guy telling me: 'Okay, hold on, wait a minute.' "I'd ask my girlfriends: 'Aren't we supposed to be the ones that say: 'Not tonight I've got a headache?' I thought something's not right here.
Earlier this month, Janet admitted Jermaine was her Mr Right. The 40-year-old star, sister to eccentric singer Michael Jackson, insisted after years of fruitless searching she had finally found her soulmate. Janet - who has two failed marriages behind her - said at the time: "You know he's my other half, my better half. I finally got it right." Article here.
