Philadelphia man attacked firefighter at Florida fire station after big game loss

HUTCHINSON ISLAND, FL – A Philadelphia Eagles fan went on a rampage shortly before the Eagles lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 38-35 in the Superbowl last weekend.

Deputies with the Martin County Sheriff’s Department arrested 25-year-old Edward Dalasandro after he broke into the Hutchinson Island Fire Station on NE Ocean Boulevard and assaulted a firefighter.

According to detectives, Dalasandro, who resides in Philadelphia, broke into the Hutchinson Island Fire Station around 10:00 pm, ransacked the bunk rooms, urinated on the carpet and stole $126.00, a uniform hat and some knives.

“When firefighters confronted him, he threw a meat cleaver at them. Firefighters were able to contain him until sheriff’s deputies arrived,” the Martin County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Edward Dalasandro was charged with armed burglary, aggravated assault on a firefighter, and theft. He was taken to the Martin County Jail, and held on $120,000 bond where the eagle was officially grounded for the second time in one night.
