TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Edgar Cortes, an Orlando man who was dumb enough to take a sip from his beer while next to a cop in traffic.
Cortes tried to avoid getting pulled over, but when the officer stopped him, he was seen stuffing something under the seat.
The officer saw the open beer and smelled unburnt marijuana.
Police eventually searched Cortes’ vehicle and found a small bag of marijuana and a 9 mm. pistol loaded with 11 cartridges under the driver’s seat.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Krystal Kurlowich, 23, of North Fort Myers, Florida, who celebrated the end of her probation for drug charges by throwing a party with drugs and alcohol.
Police responded to a noise complaint and found alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs inside a hotel room that was rented by Kurlowich.
One of the teenagers in the room was charged with a felony for possession of a controlled substance.
Deputies arrested Kurlowich as well.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Jennifer Terry, 44, of Ogden, Utah, who was arrested for driving her daughter and friends around while they egged houses.
Terry’s feeble attempt at parenting and bonding resulted in the egging between 10-20 houses and thousands of dollars in damages.
The mother drove around her daughter and their friends and they all egged houses together.
But the cops traced it back to them.
Terry goes to court facing a misdemeanor charge of causing a catastrophe.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
