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

12 2, 1998

The Bozo criminal for today violated Bozo Rule Number 5347: It’s not usually a good idea to take along your kids when you’re planning on committing a crime. From Monclair, New Jersey comes the story of Bozo John Clifford and his 5 year old son Mike. Police officers responding to a call of a suspicious man in a parking garage found our bozo and his son. The bozo told officers he was just passing through the garage and hadn’t seen anything unusual. His 5 year old son then said, "My daddy was trying to break a window on a car." The boy then led officers to the car, showing them the scratches the bozo had made while trying to break in. When his daddy denied doing anything wrong, the little boy said, "Yes you did, daddy. Don’t lie to the police." The bozo was taken into custody on attempted robbery charges.
