TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Treasure Dawn Shockey, 27, an Oregon woman who was caught hiding from police under the lid of a portable toilet.
Shockey, who was wanted on identity theft charges, ran from police and into a construction site.
About 20 minutes later, a construction worker told police he had lifted the lid of a port-a-potty and was surprised to see her inside the chemical toilet (EW!).
Police removed Shockey from the toilet and they arrested her.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Robert Seals, 15, a Florida teen who is on life support after dousing himself with rubbing alcohol and getting a friend to set him alight for the “Facebook Fire Challenge.”
The teen suffered severe burns after attempting to perform the online craze where people set themselves on fire.
The incident happened near his Orlando home as Seals was with several teens who were playing a game where they dared each other to do stunts.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Eliphalet Miller Ford IV, 34, a Colorado man who stunned cops when asked if the powder in his nose was cocaine.
Ford was sitting on a park bench in Aspen, Colorado, with a friend, getting ready to do a line of coke, when two cops came up.
When asked if the powdery substance caked on his nose was coke, he told the officers, “Of course I have cocaine up my nose. It’s Aspen!”
He was arrested and charged with narcotics possession and resisting arrest.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
