ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - Four men started out their night at a bonfire and ended it with an illegal 3 a.m. hunting joyride in a Mini Cooper... crammed inside the tiny car with four very large deer.

It's the last thing you'd expect to find outside your rural home; a bright yellow Mini Cooper, shell casings and blood on the ground.

Neighbors heard gunshots and called 911.

Deputies arrived to find a Mini Cooper with fogged up windows; inside were four grown men and four very large dead deer.

Authorities said the two-door car had somehow stalled.

They discovered the driver had purposefully sped up to run over one of the deer and then got stuck on top of the buck and stalled.

Officials said the men told them they had partied that night, went on the joyride/hunt under the cover of darkness and then passed out.

Deputies found pot in the car and more than one reason to send two of them to jail.

Two of the men are expected in court in February.
