There are just so many times criminals amaze me with their less than brilliant plans. This week’s villain is no exception.

Let’s review:

A Kentucky man was arrested for shoplifting alcohol from a local convenience store. A short time later, he and his friends were discovered drinking it in a public place.

Note: This was not the first time that he had stolen beer from the same convenience store that day.

Even though this individual’s own choice to rob the same store multiple times in one day led to his arrest, of course he blamed the law enforcement official who arrested him.  The criminal decided to get even with the arresting officer.

Which of the following did the criminal do?

A. Use his one phone call to order pizza under the arresting officer’s name to be delivered to the precinct.

B. Steal the officer’s car once he was out on parole.

C. Key the entire length of the arresting officer’s squad car.

D. Have his buddies torch the officer’s mailbox.

E. Smash in the officer’s car windows with a baseball bat.

It takes an awful lot of moxy to dial up revenge, but apparently this criminal cared more about getting even than he did his own freedom.

If you guessed the letter A, you’d be right. The criminal dialed Dominos Pizza to place an order in his arresting officer’s name.

  1. I knew anyone dumb enough to steal beer from the same store more than once would do something dumb like ordering pizza in the cop’s name. lol
