TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Priscilla Lee Bembow, a Florida woman who called in a bomb scare to a U.S. Navy recruiting office because she needed a ride.
Bembow told the petty officer who answered the phone that if somebody didn’t pick her up from a gas station, she was going to detonate a bomb she’d planted in the office.
The petty officer notified his superiors, who in turn contacted 911.
Bembow got her ride, but it was to the slammer instead.
No bomb was found.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
36-year-old Chad Mudd of Largo, Florida, and his 34-year-old wife, Joey, who were busted for offering their teenagers drugs for doing their chores and getting good grades.
The parents were arrested for bribing their 13 and 14-year-old daughters with pot and cocaine.
The mother admitted she’d smoked weed with her daughters five times as a reward for them doing chores and as, “a bargaining tool.”
Both mom and dad were charged with child abuse and drug possession.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Alice Barron, 52, an Arkansas woman who was arrested after police and fire fighters found her stash of meth during a house fire.
Barron had asked rescuers to go into the house to save her cats, but while they were in there, cops also found a massive stash of meth.
The cats were rescued, but Barron was arrested on multiple counts of drug possession.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
37-year-old Samuel Dufner, a science teacher in Oregon, who was arrested after he used a Tesla coil to burn the phrase “I Love Mom” into the arms of students.
A parent saw his work on their child’s arm and contacted authorities.
Dufner posted $2,000 bail and was placed on leave by the school system.
Although he was briefly suspended, all charges were eventually dropped after it was revealed that all students volunteered to be branded.
