It's not just in FL.

When one of my grandfathers was in a nursing home he got
in a nice brawl with another guy. Both in wheelchairs. It was
like Rockem Sockem Robots. :D In Jersey.

Yeah, my dad got in a fight with his roommate when I put him in a home. They got him a lower functioning roommate. Dad was, for the first year or so, the "Alfa Male" in his retirement home. It was pretty funny.
