Florida Man Found Driving Around With Traffic Sign Embedded In His Skull

When Florida Highway Patrol officers pulled over an erratically swerving grey Camaro yesterday outside of St Augustine, they figured they had a standard DUI on their hands. The driver, 63-year-old Leslie Richard Newton, had in fact been boozing and driving, the FHP says — but that’s not the main reason he was having trouble staying in his lane.

Newton had a piece of a traffic sign embedded in his skull.

It’s not entirely clear when the signage ended up in Newton’s head, but Jacksonville’s Fox30 reports he rammed into a sign earlier in the evening on eastbound SR 16 outside of St Augustine.

Photos of his Camaro show a front headlight bashed in and some window damage; apparently Newton hit the sign hard enough for a chunk of it to fly into his cranium — via redwolf.newsvine.com
