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

February 16, 2006

We are only now getting word of a couple of bozos in Sheridan, Colorado who had big plans to celebrate the Super Bowl. After the game was over, they planned to set off their own pyrotechnics display by lighting some balloons filled with an explosive gas. They never got to enjoy their big plan. After filling a large balloon with acetylene gas, they drove over to where the big party was being held. As they were driving, the balloon rolled back and forth across the back seat, building up a static electricity charge. Eventually the charge sparked, setting off an explosion that broke the windows of the car and pushed the roof up about a foot. Our bozos miraculously weren’t seriously injured. They’ve been charged (no pun intended) with felony possession of an explosive device.
