Pasco deputy shoots, injures suspect in New Port Richey

Tony Marrero, Tampa Bay Times
A Pasco sheriff’s deputy shot and wounded a suspect who opened fire on deputies in New Port Richey early Wednesday, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

Joseph Nathaniel Midkiff, 34, was hit in the elbow and taken to HCA Florida Bayonet Point Hospital to be treated for injuries that deputies said were not life threatening. Midkiff was arrested on multiple charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer.

The shooting happened after deputies responded about 2:20 a.m. to a call about a suspected stolen Honda motorcycle near the intersection of Rowan Road and Kauai Loop, according to arrest affidavits. Deputies saw the Honda about 10 feet away from a moving van in a parking lot. Midkiff was standing on the back bumper of the van, the affidavits state.

When a deputy ordered Midkiff to show his hands, Midkiff took off running along a sidewalk toward Rowan Road. During the foot chase, the affidavits state, Midkiff fired one round from a semi-automatic handgun.

Mr. Midkiff now faces a slew of charges from the comfort of the local lock-up. Thanks for the link, Gun Bunny.

Georgia would-be robber slips on ice while pulling gun, hits head, police say: ‘Like a scene from Home Alone’
Witnesses took two guns from the suspect before police arrived to take him into custody

By Paul Best | Fox News
A Georgia man’s attempt to rob a business in the early hours of Christmas morning went awry when employees fended off the suspect, sending him slipping on ice and hitting his head on the ground, according to the Gainesville Police Department.

Luis Sajbocho-Ordonez, 30, is now facing armed robbery and aggravated assault charges.

The incident, which police likened to a “scene out of ‘Home Alone,'” began around 1:00 a.m. on Christmas morning.

Sajbocho-Ordonez was allegedly hiding behind a business in Gainesville, which is about 50 miles northeast of Atlanta, and pulled a gun on an employee who walked outside.

The employee got into a physical altercation with Sajbocho-Ordonez, who allegedly fired a shot after another worker exited the building and spooked him.

Sajbocho-Ordonez then allegedly tried to flee the scene but slipped on a frozen patch and hit his head.

From his booking photo Mr. Sajbocho-Ordonez actually slipped several times on the ice, and then fell up the steps to the jail house. Twice.

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

I derive great pleasure and schadenfreude from perps’ booking pics that look like they were run through the meat grinder.

Mr “Florida Man” Midkiff was hit in his elbow bone. And it wasn’t funny.
Hopefully Mr Midkiff can be thankful that he wasn’t hit in his midriff.

The only way that the second story (Ft Wayne, IN) could be any better is if the perp’s status were changed from wounded (0/1/0) to deceased (1/0/0).
We can always pray for a delayed staph infection.


Looking to slip in and out of the Tampa area without running into some of the more nefarious dirtbags that are down there. Head will be a a fast swivel the whole time.

Another tic mark in the poor victim selection skilz column.

Slip sliding away. “…fell up the steps…Twice.” heh heh Lost 2 weapons also. Rolled the dice and got Snake eyes and swollen eyes.

Need to scout out that little sweetheart. Tho a semi plasticized abomination, much respect for Colonel Cooper and it does remind me of a short barrel Springfield 1903. And I don’t have a bolt action…or a .308. What say ye, Roh-Dog? Should help to shore up that North Wall?


That little Scout does look like a good addition to our various and sundry collections of freedom seed planters.

I’d want to compare that Steyer to an AR10 in .308 for size, weight, cost vs value, etc.


From the photo and account of The Adventures of Mr. Sajbocho-Ordonez, he appears to have some similarities in rationality of one AOC
