TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Quincy McGee, 29, a Florida man who was arrested for robbery after the victim recognized him as one of her Facebook friends.
McGee was one of four men who stole a woman’s purse after she got out of her car in a parking lot in Jupiter, Florida.
Two of the four guys were wearing masks, but two of them weren’t.
The woman told police that one of the men looked like a friend on Facebook.
It’s not clear where they met, and they didn’t know each other very well.
But she forwarded his profile to the cops, and he was arrested and charged with robbery.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Two cops in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, who apparently didn’t know their discussion about oral sex was being broadcast over the loudspeaker of their police helicopter.
Residents in the city’s downtown reported hearing parts of the officers’ conversations, which at one point included oral sex.
The Winnipeg Police service has apologized for the incident, which happened while the pair and one other officer were on routine patrol aboard the helicopter.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Jaroslav Kratky, 65, whose pot growing operation was revealed when a lightning bolt sparked a fire at his Florida home.
Fire trucks arrived and noticed a strange smell to the smoke so they called police, who searched the home.
The cops found 15 plants in the house, seven plants outside, and a big suitcase stuffed with packages of weed.
Jaroslav denied running a grow house, claiming, he’s just a hoarder.
He said, “I’m a packrat, you know, I got things. I’m a junk man. I take all kinds of stuff.”
He was arrested on multiple counts of possession and distribution.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Nicholas Papoutsis, 31, a Pennsylvania man who spent his wedding night in jail after a fight broke out at his wedding.
Police arrested seven people, including Papoutsis, the groom, during the altercation, which reportedly began over a guest letting her 14-year-old son drink alcohol.
More than a dozen different police departments in a southeastern Pennsylvania county responded to a wedding brawl that grew violently out of control.
Police say one guest was unfazed after an officer twice used a stun gun on him.
The groom reportedly challenged police to fight before being subdued and charged with disorderly conduct, interfering with the administration of law, and public drunkenness.
