TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Miracle Crimes, 31, (yes that’s her given name), who got arrested for assaulting an employee at a convenience store, and then kicked a cop in the groin.
Crimes allegedly hurled the tray of donuts at a convenience store manager after being told to leave the store.
Police responded, but she resisted arrest and threatened to kill the officers before being Tasered and transported to police headquarters.
Once there, she kicked an officer in the groin and renewed her threats, saying, “I’m going to kill you so call your kids and tell them goodbye.”
Crimes was booked on six charges, including two counts of threat to commit a crime (murder), assault and battery on a police officer (foot), and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (donut tray).
As an added bonus a seventh charge was added the next day, after she allegedly spat in the face of a court officer.
BTW, she pleaded “Not Guilty.”
AND THEN THERE’S …..
Andrew Cheadle, 45, who was arrested after he set fire to his underwear in a California Walgreens bathroom, because he couldn’t get them off.
Cheadle went into the Walgreens bathroom and couldn’t get his underwear off, so he set them on fire.
That apparently worked, but the smoke forced the evacuation of the store.
First responders tracked down the source of the smoke and learned hot-pants Cheadle had on two outstanding warrants, and arrested him.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Two Tishomingo (Oklahoma) High School basketball coaches, who were fired for using a school bus to go on a beer run.
A school board member says it happened while the coaches were out of town with the team at a basketball camp at Connors State College.
The action was confirmed by a store clerk, who told investigators the two drove a school bus to their store buy beer.
BTW, the college they were at does not allow alcohol on campus.
OKAY, ONE MORE …..
Three teens, two males ages 15 and 17, and a 16-year-old female, all members of the LAPD cadet program, who are facing charges after they stole three police cars and crashed two of them.
In addition to the three vehicles, police also recovered two Tasers, two police radios, and a bulletproof vest.
LAPD officers attempted to stop the teens driving the patrol cars, but both fled and at one point during the pursuit, went different directions, initiating two police chases throughout the streets of South Los Angeles.
The teens, one of whom was wearing an LAPD bulletproof vest, were arrested and taken in for questioning.
During the investigation, one confessed to having stolen a third patrol car.
What’s also alarming is the theft went undetected for several days, until a watch commander doing daily inventory noticed two black-and-white LAPD patrol vehicles missing from their fleet.
Investigators believe that the cadets may have impersonated police officers using these vehicles.
