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

January 31, 2000

Bozo criminal for today violated Bozo Rule Number 9090: When committing a crime, it’s usually not a good idea to make yourself stand out in a crowd. From West Memphis, Arkansas comes the story of bozo Edward Brunson who, for reasons known only to his bozo self, decided to pretend he was wheelchair bound when he held up a local donut shop. Our bozo handed a holdup note to the clerk and wheeled out with about $120 in cash. The police were called and were quickly able to spot our bozo in his wheelchair rolling down the sidewalk. When he saw the cops, our bozo jumped out of the chair and sprinted away, eluding capture. His freedom was short lived, however, since he made one other fatal mistake. He wrote the holdup note on the back of one of his personal checks, which, of course, contained his name and home address.
