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

2 6, 1997

Bozo criminal this morning comes from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bozo criminal Ralph Simpson walks into a convenience store there. Instead of using a weapon to demand money, our bozo used a rather unusual threat. He walked in and told the cashier that if she didn’t hand over the money, he’d hold his breath until he passed out and then he’d sue the store for being injured on the premises. The attendant simply laughed at the bozo. He held his breath until he turned red, probably more from embarrassment than lack of oxygen. When it became obvious his plan wasn’t working, he headed for the door where he ran smack into an off duty police officer stopping by to pick up a cup of coffee.
