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

August 09, 1999

Bozo criminal for today comes from Charlotte, North Carolina where bozo Lawrence Evans carjacked a Mercedes, holding a gun to the owner’s head and forcing him out of the car. Our bozo didn’t make a speedy getaway, however, since the car was a standard transmission and bozo Lawrence didn’t know how to drive stick. In his effort to get the car into gear our bozo hit a shopping cart, a retaining wall and another car. Finally, after about ten minutes of gear grinding, our bozo got out and tried again, this time carjacking a sport utility vehicle with an automatic transmission. As he sped away, he promptly ran into another car, this one driven by an off duty police officer. He’s been charged with attempted robbery, first degree kidnapping, robbery with a dangerous weapon and hit and run.
