TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Blake Meir, a 31-year-old Ohio man who told police he was jogging through town naked because it was hot out.
Police received a call that a naked man was running down a main road at 1:30 in the morning.
When they caught up with him, Meir claimed to be unaware of his offense and said he thought it was okay because of the temperature.
The temperature at the time was 85 degrees, but he was fined $110 for disorderly conduct.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
An unidentified Boston man, who was arrested for drunk driving after getting behind the wheel just 300 feet from his house.
The man left a house party down the block from his home, but decided to drive.
Because the Boston traffic system caused him to go around in a circle to turn around, he was spotted by police, who administered a sobriety test after they saw him hit a curb.
He was arrested and had his license suspended for 20 months.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Levi Charles Reardon, a Montana man who was arrested after “liking” his mug shot on a Crime Stoppers page.
A friend of Reardon’s had pointed out his photo on the page, prompting Reardon to “like” it.
News that he “liked” his own mugshot incited local media attention, which resulted in a local news outlet setting up an interview with Reardon.
It was there that cops arrested him, after being unable to locate him for months.
His trial is set for August 31.
