Craig Jungwirth is Back - The King of Chaos Continues His Reign of Harassment and Scams

By Jason Parsley

Craig Jungwirth is up to his old tricks – again. But this time law enforcement has stepped in and issued a warrant for his arrest.

The only problem is – no one can find him.  
He’s now been charged with stalking for obsessively making hundreds of appointments to a local barber, filling up his book, and essentially shutting down his business. The charge is a misdemeanor.

According to a detective at the Wilton Manors Police Department, there is another active case being investigated that may lead to additional charges as well. That case involves a potential charge of harassing communication. 

Over the years, Jungwirth has proved to be a master at evading law enforcement and process servers. Recently he’s been popping up on apps making people think he’s in town. But this week he showed up on the grid in Los Angeles. He’s been known in the past to change his location online in order to fool people.

By now, just the mention of the Jungwirth name will make almost any gay man in South Florida cringe. Jungwirth was once arrested, and made national news, by threatening to harm the Wilton Manors LGBTQ community with a “Pulse” like attack in 2016. 

Over the years, he’s continued to harass local queer men. Two of the local gay men he targeted in 2021 attempted to file restraining orders. They went to court, only to be told Jungwirth had not been served, so the court was unable to put a restraining order in place. For a restraining order to move forward, the accused has to be served notice, a legal requirement before a civil case can move forward. 

 When OutSFL initially heard Jungwirth was once again harassing locals, some of his prior victims declined to be interviewed again because they did not want to be put back on his radar and harassed.

It's in the Stars

The Ace of Swords and The Tower signal a major realization that will seem to bring your current perceptions and beliefs about your relationship(s) or your work environment crashing down. For a few days, you might struggle to see any options ahead, blinded by the lighting bolt or revelation, much as the confused figure in the reversed Eight of Cups. However, The Ace of Swords also indicates a mental restructuring that will allow you to finally see things as they are, without rose-colored glasses. In relationships, you might finally stop overlooking unhealthy behaviors that have kept you and your partner(s) in the mire, while at work, even if your sense of job security might falter, your mind will open an unexpected door of almost unlimited options.
