While yesterday’s police reports might have been lacking, today’s more than make up for it. SO MUCH WACKNESS.
I can’t really pick out a favorite, although I’m tempted to go with the guy who got busted for cutting through parking lots to avoid traffic lights, because I NEVER see jackwads get pulled over for doing that. OH COOL YOU SAVED YOURSELF 19 SECONDS TRY NOT TO HIT A GAS PUMP OR SMALL CHILD.
• the guy whose music was so loud he couldn’t hear the cop’s siren
• the person who went crazy with a fire extinguisher
• the “unwanted guest” at Walmart
• the guy who had 15 empty Bud Light margarita cans in his car (deserves jail time just for drinking that crap)
• Glade used as a dangerous weapon
• the “friend” who stole a man’s wallet (lot of stolen wallets lately)
