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

3 19, 1997

The Bozo Criminal for today comes from Washington, D.C. and for a change this Washington Bozo isn’t a politician. Bozo Reggie Brown broke out of a D.C. jail and sought refuge at his girlfriend’s apartment. This seemed to be a good idea, because several days passed and the fugitive bozo still had not been caught. Then, the bozo’s girlfriend had to appear in court on a robbery charge. She asked the Bozo to accompany her to court, which he did. At the lunch recess, the Bozo went out for a sandwich. While he was gone, the girlfriend needed to see him, so she had him paged, using his real name, over the courthouse public address system. Police officers recognized Reggie’s name and arrested him as the Bozo returned to the courthouse in a car he had stolen over the lunch hour.
