Home Game Gone Wild – Florida Man Dishes Out Bad Beats

You gotta know when to walk away, know when to run.

A home poker game got out of control in Marathon Florida early yesterday as Issac Vargas, 21, found himself handcuffed and facing a felony charge of aggravated battery (use of a deadly weapon). According to the story first reported on Florida’s Local10.com Vargas, his roommate, the roommate’s brother and some friends were playing poker in the early morning hours of Thursday when a fight broke out and the cops were called.

When Deputy Deanna Torres arrived she found the roommate’s brother outside who told her that his brother had been hit in the head with a Corona bottle and was “bleeding heavily.” He then warned her not to go in solo as people were “acting crazy.”

Two more deputies arrived on the scene, Garrett Test and Danielle Malone, and the trio entered the house to find shattered bottles and a trail of blood leading to the blood soaked victim. The victim was taken to the hospital while Vargas was hauled away in cuffs…likely facing a multiple round penalty.
