TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Jarious Tremayne Mock, was arrested for trying to pay his prison bail with counterfeit money.
Mock was arrested for disorderly conduct outside a Greensboro nightclub after he yelled F-the police several times on the way to his car.
A warrants check revealed that he had failed to appear in court in connection with a marijuana case so he was taken to central booking.
After being informed that he could immediately bail himself out for $200, Mock pulled cash from his wallet.
It was then that investigators realized he had a wad of fake $100 bills.
Mock was promptly arrested for the third time that night.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
An unnamed, 25-year-old New Jersey man, who was arrested for impersonating a police officer after pulling over an off-duty state trooper.
The off duty trooper was traveling on a highway when a white Jeep pulled up behind him with flashing blue emergency lights.
The would-be cop approached the vehicle and demanded to see the trooper’s license, but in the process he made so many procedural errors that the trooper realized it was a ruse.
He revealed his own credentials, causing the man to flee, but on-duty state police caught the man a few miles later.
He was arrested for impersonating a public servant.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Andru Shea Jolstad, a 26-year-old Mesa, Arizona man who was busted for robbery after his arm got stuck inside the video game he was robbing.

When police responded to the building alarm they found Jolstad on his knees, looking inside with a flashlight.
He was arrested on multiple charges of breaking and entering.
