You will not believe why one Florida man had to run for his life from this knife-wielding maniac

“Mind your own business” is something that most people learn at an early age.

Not following this advice can lead to trouble.

And you will not believe why one Florida man had to run for his life from this knife-wielding maniac.

The Greek Stoic philosopher Epictetus once said to “keep your attention focused entirely on what is truly your own concern, and be clear that what belongs to others is their business and none of yours.”

Hank Williams Jr. said that “if you mind your own business, you’ll stay busy all the time.”

And Plato once declared that “justice means minding one’s own business and not meddling with other men’s concerns.”

But one Florida man just found out the hard way that it is wise advice to stay out of other people’s business.

Robert Allen Biser, 43, recently had a heated argument with his girlfriend, 33-year-old Desiree Natasha Downer.

A man walking down the street overheard the argument and giggled loud enough for Biser to hear.

But the giggle sent Biser into a fit of rage.

According to the police report, Biser was “upset” at the giggling and “began calling him racial slurs” before threatening to “stick him like a pig.”

His girlfriend also did not appreciate it and slapped the man who giggled in the face.

“The victim reported to police that the incident began around 8:30 p.m. when Biser became enraged by the giggle, hurled racial slurs, and threatened violence,” Newsradio WFLA reported. “Downer then allegedly slapped the victim, prompting the victim to flee for his safety.”

The man ran away, but the couple chased him down the street with a “silver object” in Biser’s hand.

Fortunately, the victim escaped and called 911.

Once police arrived on the scene, the couple gave conflicting accounts of the incident to the officers.

“Deputies said Biser claimed the victim had been bothering him and came up to him with the knife and ‘randomly attacked him,’” Local10 reported. “He claimed, they said, that the victim dropped the knife after Downer stood up, leading Biser to pick it up and chase after him.”

However, a witness informed the officers that Biser had asked him to borrow a knife only 45 minutes before the incident took place.

The officers took Biser and Downer into custody.

Biser was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

But Downer resisted arrest and had a crack pipe in her possession.

The officers charged her with misdemeanor charges of battery, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Next time the victim will think twice before giggling over an argument that did not involve him.
