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

Well, We Had To Charge Him With Something

Bozo criminal for today comes from Timaru, New Zealand, where bozo Charles Pope had a little too much to drink, stripped naked, and decided to go for a ride on his bicycle. The cops noticed him weaving and pulled him over, giving him a ticket for riding while intoxicated, right? Wrong. Apparently there’s no legal limit for cycling in New Zealand. Maybe a ticket for indecent exposure? Nope. According to the officer “that would depend on what could be seen” and apparently no naughty bits were showing. So what did hour naked, drunk bicycle rider get ticketed for? Not wearing a helmet.

    Somehow I feel that the Bozo moniker was given to the wrong person in this case. And I don’t mean that it should have been given to the police officer but to the lawmakers who crafted the laws in such a bad way that it forced the officer to lay such a Bozo infraction.

    My two bits worth.
