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

8 25, 1998

The Bozo criminal for today comes from Key West, Florida where Bozo Lenny Whittaker learned the hard way that you can’t always believe everything the police tell you. It seems Key West Police were called to the Ocean Key Marina early Sunday morning with a report of a prowler among the large boats docked there. Police spotted a suspicious man, our bozo, on the bridge of one of the vessels and when the bozo saw the cops he dove into the water. Thinking quickly, one of the cops, instead of yelling "Freeze" or "Halt" instead yelled "Shark". Taking the cop at his word, the bozo turned around and swam to the shore in a panic and into the custody of the cops. Buy the way, there were no sharks in the area.
