TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Richard Relliford, 26, a Florida man who was arrested after he failed to convince police that the bag of marijuana in his car was salad.
The incident happened during a routine traffic stop.
The St. Mary’s Police Department posted a photo of the marijuana in a sandwich bag on its Facebook page.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
A 42-year-old North Kingsville, Ohio man pretending to be a real cop, was arrested when he pulled over a real cop.
An off-duty officer was stopped by the alleged impersonator, who was driving a black SUV with red and blue emergency-style lights.
The unarmed man in civilian clothes repeatedly tried to convince the off-duty officer that he was a real lawman, but eventually drove away.
The real officer contacted police, who found the bogus cop within minutes.
Now he gets to spend some time in a REAL jail.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..

Matous, who according to his Facebook page was an Assistant Manager, and Kent Jerome Duby, 56, were arrested for conspiracy to manufacture meth.
