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

7 10, 1997

Bozo criminal for today comes from Spokane, Washington where the police were having a community "meet the police" night. Residents were invited to stop by a neighborhood park, get to know the police and see some of the latest law enforcement technology. At one booth, the police were showing off their new drivers license computer that was connected directly to the state’s main computer. Police could "run" your drivers license and check to see if you had any outstanding tickets. The police asked for a volunteer to come up and give them his license number. Bor reasons known only to a bozo, Sammy Smith walked up and volunteered. To the cops’ disbelief, when they ran the license, the found the bozo was a wanted man, with several outstanding warrants. He was arrested on the spot.
