Kelly's Stupid Criminals of the week
Another Friday rolls around, and with another Stupid Criminals. This week's is a doozy. Starting with a woman in Florida who took a joyride on a manatee. Turns out riding manatees are illegal. Whoops.
A pregnant Ohio woman took matters into her own hand when her car was about to be repossessed. Instead of complying, she jumped into the tow-truck and then led police on a two mile chase. She and the baby are fine.
A Michigan man who patrols the streets in a Batman costume is facing a felony charge after he allegedly interfered with a police investigation.
Mark Wayne Williams, 33, was busted after showing up at the site of an auto accident Saturday evening in Bear Creek Township in northern Michigan. Williams, dressed as Batman, was at the crash scene thanks to his monitoring of a police scanner.
Concerned that Williams’s actions could compromise their dog’s ability to track the driver’s scent, troopers directed him to depart the area. But the wannabe superhero refused to comply. Troopers responded by arresting Williams for resisting and obstructing a police investigation, a felony carrying a maximum two-year prison term.
Finally, an woman standing in line at Washington Dulles International Airport indignantly began drinking straight from her bottle of Smifnoff vodka when TSA officials told her she couldn't take it with her through security. She was neighborly though, offering swigs to fellow travelers.
