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

4 2, 1997

The Bozo Criminal for today comes from Memphis, Tennessee where 18 year old Brandon Hughes appeared in court on a minor charge of driving with a suspended driver’s license. He walked up to the stand with his hand in his pocket and when he took it out to place it on the bible, a little plastic bag of white powder fell out. Yep, it was cocaine, right there in front of the judge, the sheriff and several deputies. The most the Bozo would have received for the auto violation was a fine. He’s now looking at 12 years.

(No Foolin’!) The Bozo Criminal for today might have never made the bozo rap sheet if he had only owned a drill. Bozo Joseph Aaron was charged with reckless use of a firearm after he admitted himself to the hospital in Wesley Chapel, Florida with a gunshot wound to the leg. It seems our Bozo was installing a new tail pipe on his car. He needed to bore a hole in the pipe to mount it and since he had no drill he decided he would simply shoot a hole in the tailpipe with his trusty hand gun. Bad idea. The bullet ricocheted off the pipe and lodged in the Bozo’s leg.
