TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Shane Stahl, 33, who was busted for shoplifting … a bunch of kale from Walmart.
A security guard caught Stahl pushing his cart of vegetables out of the store without paying and called the cops.
He was also stealing croutons and bagged salad.
Shane was arrested for retail theft.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Ben Scott, 31, a British man whose bragging on social media caused a judge to sentence him to 12 months in jail.
Scott had attacked a member of the Royal Marines but a judge issued a suspended sentence.
However when Scott went home and bragged on Facebook that he was untouchable and above the law, the judge caught wind and sentenced him to 12 months in jail.
Judge Christopher Harvey Clark described Scott’s social media post as a “stupid and gloating comment.”
The judge added he must now “face the consequences of his stupid and arrogant behavior.”
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Attorney Jeffrey D. Moffatt, who was disbarred in Arizona after it was learned he asked his prospective client for nude photos as payment.
Moffatt asserted that he only sought a nude photo of his prospective client to buy time for payment, or that he was simply exercising his freedom of speech.
In addition to the nude photo, he reportedly asked his prospective client to commit a criminal offense by soliciting a “surrogate” for him to have sexual relations with.
Disciplinary proceedings revealed several aggravating factors which led to Moffatt’s disbarment.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Gareth Jones, 36, a Church of England vicar, who lashed out at police and paramedics following a night of heavy drinking
When police and a paramedic found him passed out, Jones screamed at them, “I have diplomatic immunity” as he punched, kicked, bit, and spat at them.
Jones had downed three bottles of wine, several pints of beer, a number of gin and tonics, and a large quantity of vodka.
Jones pleaded guilty to two counts of assault by beating.
This parish priest is no stranger to police, and has previous convictions for a bomb hoax, possession of cannabis, fraud, criminal damage, and driving matters, all before he was 21 years old.
