And let’s not forget about the broom handle and a revolver thrown in the mix.

Jamaal Tarshae Johnson, 21, of Lakeland, Florida, just couldn’t decide which weapon he wanted to use to finish off a boyhood friend earlier this month.

It seems that Johnson went over to his friend’s house, who is also a budding mechanic, to see how work was going on his 1999 Ford F-250. Johnson didn’t like the shoddy work done by his friend who said he couldn’t do better without some new parts.

As the victim walked home, Johnson allegedly followed him in his truck and hit him from behind, knocking him about 10 feet and to the ground.

Johnson got out and started hitting him with a broom handle. The man escaped only to run into Johnson a little later at a convenience store. He blocked the victim in with his truck and approached with a revolver ready to fire, reports said.

That wasn’t quite right so Johnson ran back to his truck, grabbed a baby stroller and swung it. He then allegedly grabbed a socket wrench and threw it through his victim’s open window and hit him in the face.

Johnson was picked up later and charged with throwing a deadly missile into an occupied vehicle, aggravated stalking, aggravated assault, criminal mischief, false imprisonment, aggravated battery, and armed burglary.
