Florida Man Assaults Quadriplegic with a Fish



There goes the neighborhood.

Imagine each Monday morning, driving to work, knowing that either yourself or your neighbor was harassed by a man down the street who has a severe drinking problem. What if that imagination was turned to reality?

Meet 52-year-old Dale McDaniel from New Port Richey, Florida. A man who does in fact drink heavily, and raises hell throughout the neighborhood.

According to 10 News, Mr. McDaniel has been arrested 34 times. Now, that’s a lot of scared people.

Listening to interviews with Dale’s neighbors is by far the best way to understand the man. Here are a few of the notable quotables:

I’m just glad I don’t have children. -Neighbor

He pee’d right here, against his own house. -another Neighbor

I have seen him run down the street chasing a guy over here with a chainsaw, running. He lifted a chainsaw last week at me. I can’t take it anymore. -another Neighbor

He has physically put his hands around my throat in the past. -another Neighbor

Even this neighbor, confined to a wheelchair, admits he was assaulted in his own driveway, slapped in the face, with a fish. -Reporter

That about says it all. Slapping a quadriplegic with a fish? Chasing people with chainsaws? How is this man out in the free world?

Plenty of neighbors have had bad Mondays as a result of Mr. McDaniel. Luckily their loss is our gain, and now we get this great video interview of Dale McDaniel, for our viewing pleasure.

    I promise if that was my mom on the news complaining about getting cussed put by a drunk neighbor there would be a race between me and my brother (and probably my sister too) to that dudes front door. The men in that neighborhood need to turn in their man cards, to cowardly to stand up to a 50 year old drunk. The disabled guy is the biggest man on that street, even though he can’t physically stand he stood up to this dhead and took the assault.

    I couldn’t imagine a pothead doing anything like this.

  5. I_Love_Florida_News says:

    No worries, from the way this guy says he drinks, he will end up killing himself in a few years due to alchohol related illnesses.

    justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to take into account of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked even as other people consider concerns that they just don’t realize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.

    He should be beaten about the mazard with his own fish. (Maybe not when the chainsaw is running, though)
