Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of three stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird or in some other manner are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; Robbed you thrice, same place, and almost got away with it, drug money, a dirty cop, strippers, and you got a DUI?!? That’s okay, I left the baby on the roof.

Bardus est ut Bardus Does

This week’s “Stupid As Charged” consists of four stories which all share the theme of stupid, dumb, strange, weird, or in some other way are worthy of a dunce cap rating. In particular this episode; a drunk and his zebra, poison gas, and No Ticket the baby is coming!

A Drunk and His…. Zebra

Lumpy got word of this one via his local Fox News Channel, one of those headlines that makes you do a double take… like did I read that right?  The original headline read Man Charged with OVI, Had Zebra in Vehicle.  Yeah, I read it right.

An Iowa man has been arrested, charged with OVI and had his, pets taken to a friend’s house.  The police received a few call regarding a zebra and a parrot trapped in a car at, no surprise,  at a bar.  The article state that “quite a few people called”.  I bet that is a good thing since one might cross such a thing off as a hoax.

Nonetheless, it was no joke and when police arrived, they did see a zebra in a car and, perched on the driver’s shoulder, there actually was a parrot. Why is it I just can’t get the image of Raoul’s Wild Kingdom from Weird Al’s UHF out of my head?  Wildlife aside, the driver blew a .148 and was charged… oh yeah, his girlfriend stated “They love going for ride”.

This one averaged out to a 3.5 on our dunce-o-meter.

We closed this one out with Seven Drunken Nights by The Brobdingagain Bards.

 

Poison gas? Fuck it let’s just put T-Shirts over our face.

found at blogs.Browardpalmbeach.com

20-year-old Darrin Green and 17-year-old Jamarion Lee are either really brave, or really stupid. They decided it was in their best interest to burglarize a home that was being fumigated for termites.  The owner of the house pulled out his smartphone around 4am to check security cameras and was surprised to see two men holding T-Shirts over their faces rummaging through his belongings. He called the police, who couldn’t enter the house, you guessed it; because it was filled with deadly poison. The police called a fumigator to clear the house, however the men had already escaped.They were arrested after a tip led police to the men trying to sell the items they had stolen. Fort Lauderdale Police spokesman Det. Travis Mandell is quoted as saying: “What kind of person does that?”  “What kind of person risks their life for a couple of pieces of property, going into a house with ‘Danger! Do not enter! Poison!’ signs all over it?”

Though Mandell said the gas was “definitely not for human consumption,” the burglars didn’t show any signs of injury.

We really ranked this one pretty high.  It averaged out a 4.5.

Pregnant woman fakes labor, to avoid a ticket

This one comes from Huffington Post

It sounds like a scene in a movie, but a pregnant woman in New Zealand lied to police that she was about to give birth to get out of a speeding ticket.
Police were getting ready to lay spikes in the road to stop a Honda Civic speeding at more than 90 mph on a highway near Tauranga on Monday morning, according to the New Zealand Herald,
When the man driving eventually pulled over, he told police his friend was about to bring a new life into the world. She played the part, sitting with her feet spread apart on the dashboard, while the allegedly expectant father rode in the backseat, the Herald reported.
The police called for an ambulance and cordoned off the road as the paramedics arrived. Police later called the hospital to check in the patient, but discovered that that the pregnant woman discharged herself as soon as she arrived, reported the Oatgo Times Daily.
“I think she’s tried using her pregnancy to put a smokescreen to give some justification for the driver’s action. It’s not just a waste of our time but a waste of the time of St John ambulance staff helping people who really need their help,” Acting Senior Sergeant Mark Holmes told the paper.
Cops later busted the 23-year-old driver for dangerous driving.

This one metered in with unanimous 4s.

We closed out this story with Road Tripper by Carrie Dahlby w/Possible Oscar

 Man Arrested for Tampering at WalMart

It seems a man, according to a link over at Country California, sent into us by blackspyder from Geekshed.net, actually decided to enrich his communities’ musical taste by replacing hundreds of CDs at a local WalMart with his own personal collection.  The article is worth a read and the mug shot is worth a look.  Yup, that’s right… he replaced the enclosed CDs with his personal collection and ditched the contents elsewhere in the store.

This one hit 3.5 on the dunce-o-meter.

We closed with Ron Jay’s The Prettiest Girl in WalMart.

Facebook picture reveals a crime against police

WYMT

A 20-year-old man in Letcher County admits he stole gas from a police cruiser as he posed for a picture while the hose was in the police crusier‘s tank as he waved at them with an obscene hand gesture and I don’t think that he was saying they were number one.  This, quoted from Baker,

“We was just standing there and thought it would be funny to take a picture and then post it on Facebook.”

Baker’s girlfriend snapped the picture of him that she says was meant to be a joke. But, it wasn’t so funny when the cuffs were put on Baker and he was put in the back of a police cruiser.  “We don’t steal anyway, but we’re sorry,” said

Joann Sandelin, Baker’s girlfriend.  At first the duo was reluctant to talk, but as the interview continued, Baker loosened up and his honesty might surprise you.

“I got a little bit of gas. I ain’t gonna lie.  But, not much.  I couldn’t get much.  I tried, but there wasn’t much in it,”

said Baker.  A little gas or a lot of gas, it is still the same crime in the eyes of law enforcement.  “If they’re going to do it to a police car, they’re going to do it to just about anybody,” said Jenkins Police Chief, Allen Bormes.  Baker spent a night in jail for his offense and was charged with theft by unlawful taking, but he says he is not sorry for what he did.  Officials at the Jenkins Police Department say they are taking necessary precautions to avoid another event like this one and plan to have lockable gas caps in the near future.

Ex-con allegedly targets cops for robbery

stupidcriminalfile.blogspot.com

An ex-con allegedly tried to rob two people in New York, police said, but didn’t notice his intended victims were police officers — in uniform.

Police said 33-year-old Jermaine Washington allegedly was so intent on robbing someone Saturday that he pulled a fake handgun on the two uniformed armed police officers as they walked through Riverside Park, The New York Daily News said.

“It was stupid criminal tricks,” a police source said.  “The guy didn’t even look to see who was coming.”

After Washington allegedly pulled his fake gun, the two officers drew their real weapons and Washington surrendered after a short but tense standoff.

This story won an unanimous vote of Five on the Dunce meter.

911 Help!! I Gotta Pee!!

Miaminewtimes

Does a bear pee in the woods?  That’s an easy question.  Does a Florida meth-head pee in the woods?  That’s apparently a more complicated question than one could ever imagine.  Marcia Usher, 32 of Hudson, Florida, called 911 and reported that she was lost in the woods and didn’t know where to pee.  Maybe Usher is a bit more pee shy than us, because we’d assume the woods was one big urinal.  Turns out, however, Usher wasn’t even lost in the woods at all.  According to WTSP and the Pasco Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded Wednesday night to Usher’s house to find her nowhere near the woods, but rather in her own front yard.  She seemed intoxicated and was drinking a beer.  After receiving permission, officers searched a nearby cooler.  Usher said that there was a knife inside.  Instead they found a handgun placed on top a bunch of cold beer.  After a brief struggle, Usher was handcuffed.  During a strip search at jail, authorities discovered a small vile with meth residue on Usher’s person.  Usher now faces charges of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, possession of methamphetamine, introduction/possession of contraband in a detention facility, and resisting arrest without violence.

No word on whether she ever found anywhere to pee.

This one won a 4.5 dunce meter rating with 2 votes.

We chose this very fitting song for this story.

Nicholas D'Amico - Judge for The 48 Hour Film Project in Cleveland

Mr. D’Amico is a producer, director and editor.  He states the he will act when he absolutely has to but avoids it if at all possible.  I also opted to leave in a bit about myself.  It is something I normally edit our but since it comes up almost every time I go to an event and give interviews, a FAQ so to speak, I decided to leave it .  So for those of you who not only wish to hear about the film project but may wish to know why they call me Lumpy, listen in.
