Apparently life really does imitate art. Just weeks before the release of Harmony Korine's beach-babes-with-handguns movie Spring Breakers hits theaters, a woman in Daytona Beach for spring break had a two-hour armed standoff with police inside her hotel room.
The problems started on Wednesday when Heather Beaver, who is 21, started yelling at her boyfriend at a biker bar after she discovered he had been cheating. The two got in a fight at the bar, but Beaver ultimately went back to her room at the Sun and Surf motel alone. Miami New Times has the story.
You obviously haven't been in Florida long if you haven't had a drunk man threaten to contract hit men from their home country to come and have you killed. It's at least a pretty common occurrence down here in Miami. Apparently it happens in Orlando too.
Of course, if you've just been arrested for a DUI, you might want to hold off on threatening the officer's life, whether you actually have foreign murderer friends or not. Miami New Times has the story.
