Florida Fish Tank Attack? At Least It's Not Hamburgers

You'd never think of attacking a friend with a fish tank and a beer bottle over $3, would you?

Of course not, that would be stupid. Which may explain why Daniel Winter, 26, of Florida attacked his friend, Shaun Nater, 30, with both implements.

According to a story on, Winter had spent a quiet Monday evening at a strip club called Calendar Girls. A few minutes before midnight, Ashley Decicco, 18, and her boyfriend, Nater, picked him up and they ate a pleasant dinner at Burger King before going home.

(By the way, did you notice the age difference between Decicco and Nater? I'm just sayin'.)

As they drove home, Decicco asked Winter for 3 bucks to help defray gas costs. Fair enough. If you pick up a friend at a strip club, it's perfectly acceptable to ask for a little help with gas costs.

Winter, still full from Burger King and still. . . entertained by the strip club, said he couldn't come up with $3, because his rent was due.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's report, the trio argued and Winter slapped Decicco while she was driving. So Nater turned around in his seat, and commenced to whuppin' Winter, while DeCicco was still driving.

That's when things got all tanky.

Winter grabbed the fish tank and started whaling on Nater with it. While Decicco was still driving.

But the tank just wasn't having the desired effect, so Winter grabbed up a beer bottle, and began hitting Nater in the head with it. While Decicco was still driving.

Then Nater took the bottle from Winter, and bashed Winter over the head with it several times until it broke. While Decicco was still driving.

Finally, after threatening to turn the car around if they didn't stay on their own sides of the car, Decicco pulled into a Denny's parking lot and called the police.

It's a good thing she didn't call the police from the car, because dialing and driving can be dangerous.

But hey, at least they were mature enough not to attack each other with hamburgers.
