Authorities in Florida have arrested a man they say stole a BMW after trying to buy it with a food stamp debit card.
Yup, your typical dwarf pretending to be a Dalek story …
Why criminals need a dress code … Via NBC:
A Florida man may be questioning his wardrobe choice after being arrested for meth- amphetamine and marijuana possession while wearing a T-shirt reading: “Who needs drugs. No, seriously, I have drugs.”
John Balmer, 50, was arrested at a Kmart department store in Hudson, Florida on Tuesday, according to the Pasco County Sherriff’s Office, who posted a photo of Balmer wearing the shirt on its Facebook page.
Balmer has been charged with one count of possession of methamphetamine and another count of possession of marijuana not more than 20 grams, authorities said.

So … if you want to open a bank account, but you’ve got a dubious past and need to use a fake ID, what’s the logical move? Why, use a picture of Jack Nicholson on said fake ID, of course! At least that’s what Sergio Freire de Barros did … and, since he, the 41-year old Brazilian serial fake-ID-user, doesn’t look at all like the 74-year old Hollywood star, he got caught. He’s now in jail awaiting trial.
Maybe he needs to work on his presentation skills?
It had better have been a very very good joke.
