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

November 18, 1999

Our bozo for today is from the Dating and Desperate file. From New Jersey comes the story of Clifford Cain who purchased 70 large bales of hay, arranged them on his 35 acre property to spell out "Marry Me Ruth" and then leased a small airplane to take his girlfriend Ruth up to see the question. A problem quickly arose. It’s getting dark earlier and earlier these days and our bozo was afraid his loved one would not be able to read the proposal. So, our bozo’s brother back on the ground set fire to the hay bales. While Ruth was reading the fiery question and saying yes, the neighbors were seeing flames and calling the cops and the fire department. The flames were quickly brought under control and our bozo’s brother was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge for setting the fire.
