Dave Moreland's Bozo Criminal of the Day - The world famous daily report on dumb crimes

June 9, 2005

Bozo criminal for today violated Bozo Rule Number 9087: Never underestimate Granny. From Toledo, Ohio comes the story of bozo Paul Hanks who walked up to a 91 year old grandmother and told her he was going to take her purse. Now, Granny didn’t have her hearing aid in and at first thought he said he was going to take her pulse. When she figured out just what he was trying to do, she was having none of it. In a scene right out of the old "Laugh-In" show, she began bashing him repeatedly over the head with her purse until he finally ran away. Police caught up with him a short time later and charged him with robbery, felony theft, assault, aggravated menacing and possession of drug paraphernalia.
