Just Another Dumb Crook

The following is a very good example of how not to behave while getting arrested.

From the Star Telegram:

By Alex Branch

A manager of the Texaco station in the 5300 block of Mansfield Highway approached the officer outside the store about 3 p.m. and told him a customer inside was trying to fight him, according to a police report.

As the officer called for assistance on his cell phone, Crawford came outside and punched the manager and a witness in the face, the report stated. Crawford swung his elbows at the officer, who took him to the ground and identified himself a police officer.

The store manager said the altercation started after he saw the man identified as Crawford put $7 worth of bandannas in his backpack and try to leave.
Those must have been some mighty fine cheap bandannas to be worth all that.

This is the best part:

The man told the officer, "You have to let me go. Theft is just a ticket in Texas," the report stated.
Too funny, and the guy just keeps on digging his hole.

After uniformed officers arrived at the store and placed the suspect in a patrol car, the man spit and kicked at officers, the report stated. A department-issued "spit sock" was placed on his head to prevent him from spitting.

The man continued to kick and fight until he was tasered, the report stated.
Looks like maybe he is finally starting to figure it out.

He must have really needed those bandannas.

As pretty as he is I'm sure he will get plenty of bananas in jail.
