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

4 19, 1997

The Bozo Criminal for today comes from the International File. Bozo Jeff Pearce of Perth, Australia was convicted of assaulting a police officer–with his breath. The Bozo testified that he deliberately chewed a whole clove of garlic as he was being pulled over by a traffic cop and then breathed into the officer’s face as he approached the window. Unfortunately for our Bozo the judge chose to impose a seldom used Australian law defining assault as "the direct or indirect application of force, including gas or odor, in such a manner as to cause personal discomfort." He was fined and ordered to never leave the house without a bottle of Scope.
