Calgary Sun - - LIFE -

Madeira BeaCH, Fla. — a Florida man said the let­ter “o” from a Hoot­ers sign blew off the wall and landed on his foot, leav­ing him with in­juries, but sur­veil­lance video said oth­er­wise.

WFla re­ports John Bradley Kane of st. peters­burg was ar­rested for in­sur­ance fraud on Fri­day.

deputies said he lied to in­ves­ti­ga­tors about an in­ci­dent out­side a Hoot­ers restau­rant in pinel­las County

in a Novem­ber in­sur­ance claim against Hoot­ers, Kane said he was struck in the foot by an “o” from a sign that blew down dur­ing Hur­ri­cane irma.

But a Hoot­ers’ man­ager showed de­tec­tives sur­veil­lance video of the sign fall­ing onto the side­walk and hit­ting no one.

The man­ager said

Kane and friends asked un­suc­cess­fully for food and drinks in ex­change for the “o.”

He was jailed and re­leased on a $5,000 bond.
