TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Robert Darragh, 21, a Belfast man who was arrested after he tagged himself in a photo taken during a riot.
Darragh took part in a clash between Nationalists and Unionists in Northern Ireland.
A few weeks later he spotted himself in some of the riot photos, and went ahead and tagged himself.
So the cops clicked on the tags, that took them to his profile, and they used the info to track him down and arrest him.
He was just sentenced to two years in prison.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Philip Chege, 51, who called 911 nine times after claiming that a food store accused him of swiping a a $1 beer.
The Florida convenience store accused a guy of shoplifting a $1 beer, but didn’t want to press charges.
Infuriated by the accusation, Chege called 911 nine times to tell them he was innocent.
So he was arrested for misuse of 911.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Thomas Weed, 47, of Grass Valley, California, who was arrested for meth.
I know what you’re thinking, he should have been arrested for his namesake, Weed.
Well after police searched his car they found that too.
Weed was arrested for speeding while on his way to court.
Officers stopped him inside the courthouse, and since he was on probation, they searched his car and found a bunch of marijuana in small packages, also scales and other drug paraphernalia.
He also showed up for his court date high on meth.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Dr. Aaron Strickland, a Columbus, Indiana dentist, who pulled all the teeth of a man who had come in to have just four teeth pulled.
Donny Grigsby, the victim, was placed in a medically induced coma while Strickland pulled all of the teeth, because he believed an infection would spread.
Grigsby’s wife Amanda says her husband was covered in blood and unresponsive, and he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance.
Grigsby says he’s using an oxygen tank because he still has blood clots as a result of the dental procedure, and, he says, he still doesn’t know why his teeth were taken.
