Drunk Florida man shoots hole through city’s water tower

When it rains, it pours. Just ask Mark Fitzgerald of Dunedin, Fla.

He was allegedly so intoxicated early Tuesday morning that he decided it would be a super great idea to shoot a hole into the town’s water tower, causing Dunedin’s water supply to leak everywhere.

Officers said that they found Fitzgerald, 49, driving around in a golf cart through Dunedin Country Club with a “high-powered rifle” and a handgun, according to Fox 13 Orlando. Neighbors said they heard him open fire and pop off several rounds until he hit the water tower.

Fitzgerald told police that he was searching for his dog and that the reason he had the two weapons was in case he had to face off with any coyotes, which is totally understandable since Wile E. Coyote has been spotted at nearby Disney World.

He was arrested for felony criminal mischief, discharging a firearm, and use of a firearm while intoxicated, according to Fox.
