hot coffee

Summary: A Florida inmate named Coffee used hot coffee as his weapon against a fellow inmate that was “annoying” him.

Hi, my name is Coffee, Andrew Coffee. While the name might sound cool, the person that owns the name is not so much. Andrew Coffee, 53, is a career criminal serving time in a Florida jail.  He decided to use his namesake as the source of an attack on another inmate.


Coffee was charged with and admitted to throwing hot coffee on the fellow inmate, Chauncey Jones. Coffee denies then punching the 21-year-old inmate in the head after which Jones claims happened. Coffee justified dousing the man with coffee as being a better option than “beating his a**.”

The reason for the attack? Coffee stated to investigators that he was “getting annoyed by Jones because he is much younger.” Jones is 32 years younger than Coffee.
