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

May 03, 2000

Bozo criminal for today comes from Iowa City, Iowa where bozo Tyson Mitchell walked into the police station and asked the dispatcher if he was wanted for any crimes. Don’t know why he did this, because when the computer report came up it showed that our bozo was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant. As he was being taken into custody, our bozo’s problems got a lot worse. Officers found several bags of cocaine in his pocket.

Bozo criminal for today comes from Milledgeville, Georgia where bozo Darryl Alexander broke a window to gain entrance into a home. As he was checking out the inside, our bozo noticed that he was bleeding rather badly from a cut he received when he broke the window. So, our bozo left and headed to the nearest hospital to get stitched up. Police answering the burglar call noticed the bloody footprints around the house and on a hunch decided to check the local hospitals. Sure enough, they found our bozo in the emergency room. But he hadn’t stolen anything from the home, so how did the police know they had their man? He had removed the home’s doorbell switch, which they found in his pocket.

Bozo criminal for today comes from Syracuse, New York where bozo Shondell Pilgrim was charged with illegal possession and discharge of a handgun. After processing and posting bond our bozo was released. Since he had no transportation, our bozo flagged down a police car and asked for a ride home. The officers said they would do it but first they needed to check the bag he had with him. Taking a look into the bag they found…a handgun. Instead of a ride home our bozo got a free ride back to jail.
