Man Named Guy Fowlkes Blows Up Florida Fireworks Stand

Remember, remember the ... 21st of June? That's the day a 33-year-old fireworks tent employee from Orlando, Fl., went a little bonkers, detonating everything in the tent after an altercation with his pregnant girlfriend. His name is Guy Fowlkes.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Fowlkes got into a fight about a storage unit with his girlfriend, who he then "struck [on] the left side of her face." Then he started blowing stuff up.

He went into the tent and began to light up fireworks, directing some of them at other employees. He also lit the fuse of two firecrackers and placed them inside the gas tank of an employee's car.

When police arrived at the scene, Fowlkes "seemed to be having a seizure [and] said he did not know what was happening and did not remember anything."

Video of this pyrotechnical domestic disturbance is available at the Sentinel website. Any similarities to Guy Fawkes, the 17th Century conspirator who plotted to blow up British Parliament with 36 barrels of gunpowder, as depicted in the film V for Vendetta, are purely hilarious.
