Florida Man March 1: Chose Pizza Over a Negotiator
Florida Man chose pizza while waiting for the negotiator. That made it easy for the policemen to end the standoff.
Our Florida Man today is a 35-year old, Brad McLemore, a father and working as Construction Worker from Jacksonville.
He took his neighbor, Evan Lehmann as a hostage on a winter afternoon. After a disagreement over the lawnmower, McLemore went home to take his gun. He then grabbed Lehmann by his neck and point it to him.
A witness called 911 and police arrived as soon as possible.
Police officer, Robert Hoffman was the first in the scene to convince McLemore to let his hostage go. But he didn’t so Hoffman asked for back up.
Even with bunch of policemen around him, McLemore hasn’t let his neighbor go so Hoffman decided to call for a negotiator.
He was offered a pizza while waiting, which he refused to accept at first. But seems like stress and tension got him hungry so later on, he asked for a slice.
Choosing between holding a hostage or a slice of pizza, he then let go of Lehmann to enjoy his food, and even suggested the police not to call the negotiator.
After he finished eating and voluntarily came with the police to the station. Hoffman uttered, “never underestimate the power of pizza with a flavored crust”.
