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

7 31, 1997

Bozo criminal for today is a double bozo–not only is he a bozo because he committed a crime–he’s really a bozo because he hired a true bozo as his attorney. Bozo Phillip Heatherton was on trial for armed robbery. For reasons known only to his bozo attorney, during closing arguments, the attorney picked up the .357 magnum handgun used during the robbery and pointed it at the jury. The jury responded by not only finding the bozo guilty of armed robbery but also by filing a civil action against the attorney for needlessly frightening them.
