TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Nicholas Johnson, 27, a South Carolina man who called 911 because his mom yelled at him for smoking all their meth.
Johnson told a 911 dispatcher that his mother had become violent because he smoked the last of the meth they were sharing.
When police arrived Johnson wouldn’t stop screaming and swearing at his mother on their front porch.
So he was arrested for disorderly conduct.
However, since he’d consumed what was left of their dope, no drug charges were filed.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Anthony Dixon Jr., 18, who broke into a Family Dollar store and sprayed himself with two fire extinguishers to hide his identity.
However, it had the opposite effect, because cops found him walking a few blocks away covered in white powder.
Dixon admitted to breaking into the Family Dollar in an attempt to steal cigarettes and added that he stole the fire extinguishers and sprayed himself to shield his identity from surveillance cameras.
Those will end up being expensive cigarettes as his bond was set at $11,000.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Lisa Makris, 45, a Boca Raton woman who called 911 eight times, because she blacked out and couldn’t find her car.
Florida police say Makris told the dispatcher she had quite a bit to drink and couldn’t remember where her car was.
The dispatcher told her that wasn’t a reason to call 911, and hung up.
So she called again and again until a cop went to her house and arrested her for misuse of 911.
There’s no word on whether or not she ever found her car.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Michael Banks, 27, a California man who fell off a cliff while proposing to his girlfriend and ended up having to be rescued by helicopter.
Banks had climbed up a mountain so he could propose to his girlfriend on FaceTime.
After she said yes, he attempted to take a different trail back down the mountain.
However, the trail was much steeper and he couldn’t go in any direction and wound up sliding onto a sheer ledge, with his feet dangling 80 feet off the ground.
Rescuers called in a helicopter, and a first responder descended by cable to hoist Banks from the narrow ledge.
– Which begs the question, WHO proposes over FaceTime?
– Marriage is a slippery slope.
