This might be the most Florida man story of all Florida man stories.
We take you to Pasco County, one of the most Florida Man counties in all of Florida, where this far-fetched story takes place.
Matthew Leatham embraces his Florida pride. He really, really, really embraces his Florida pride. Leatham boasts his pride for the Sunshine State by getting a tattoo of the state of Florida on his forehead. Hope he doesn’t get transferred out-of-state for his job.
This is peak Florida man.
A Florida man left little doubt behind that he was a Florida man — it was written all over his face. https://t.co/lNEH4c2Eb6

If Florida was a video game, this would be the final boss.
The 22-year-old Florida man called 911 twice to request a ride home, unfortunately for Leatham, police would oblige. Leatham called 911 at 4:20 a.m. to attempt to get a free ride home, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Police responded to the 911 call, showing up in Port Richey, a suburb 40 miles northwest of Tampa. Police officers offered to call a taxi cab for Leatham, but he declined because he didn’t have any money. Poor kid was just asking “flo a rida.”
Authorities claim that he “wandered down the road and once again tried to use 911 as a free taxi service.”
A Pasco County deputy searched him and found a small amount of marijuana, according to the complaint. Leatham was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors: misuse of 911 and possession of marijuana, according to Pasco County jail records. He was released on Monday night after posting a $300 bond.
Florida man, you’re so damn precious, please don’t ever, ever, ever change.
