MCSO: Man airlifted after attack
A Howell's trailer park resident was airlifted to a Miami hospital early Saturday morning after a man reported being attacked, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
There were arrests and it was unclear Monday what happened, but detectives say Alex Miranda, 31, had cuts to his head and neck when he knocked on a woman's door and told her he had been attacked before collapsing.
Deputies went to Miranda's trailer, where he has two roommates. They found a large amount of blood around a chair near the trailer as well as broken glass and a broken beer bottle, reports say.
Miranda was later released from the hospital and the case remains under investigation.
No saltwater fishing license needed Sunday
Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission haved designated Sunday as a saltwater license-free fishing day. Florida residents and visitors can experience Florida's saltwater fishing opportunities without a recreational saltwater fishing license. All bag limits, seasons and size restrictions remain in place.
"This is a great opportunity to introduce friends and family who may have never experienced Florida saltwater fishing to the Sunshine State's bountiful waters and historic fishing communities," Scott said.
The FWC will consider adding four additional license-free fishing days to the calendar at its Sept. 5 meeting in Pensacola. An annual license for residents can be purchased at 1-888-FISH-Florida or License.MyFWC.com. All fishing license fees support fish and wildlife conservation and help attain additional funding for federal aid in sport fish restoration projects.
