Get a load of this guy.

A Florida man is accused of assaulting a 75-year-old who took his dryer at a laundromat in Fort Myers.

Kenneth Wood, 55, allegedly pushed Alexandros Dimitrelos on the floor, stomped on him and smashed his cell phone, all because the man started using the dryer that Wood wanted, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

According to the report, the Dimitrelos starting putting his clothes into a dryer when Wood claimed it was his. Dimitrelos pointed out that Wood's clothes were still being washed, and Wood asked if the senior citizen was the owner. Wood became violent after Dimitrelos called him an "idiot."

Surveillance video from the laundromat helped police identify Wood. He was charged with felony battery on a person 65 years or older.

While Wood's alleged behavior suggests that he's one sock short of a matching pair, he's by no means the first to be accused of completely losing it over something minor.

In June, Floridian Randy Zipperer allegedly stabbed his younger brother during an argument about missing macaroni and cheese.

And earlier this month, police said a South Carolina woman attacked her roommate with a bread knife because he refused to stop playing The Eagles.
