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

8 4, 1997

Bozo criminal for this morning comes from Des Moines, Iowa where police responded to a 911 call in which the caller did not say a word and quickly hung up the phone. Fearing something was amiss, the dispatcher traced the call. It turned out that our bozo, 49 year old Jerry Bentley had inadvertently dialed 911 while he was wiping a spilled beer off the phone. Upon arriving at the bozo’s house, police ran a routine check and found the bozo was wanted on outstanding warrants for drug possession and failure to appear in court.
