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

August 1, 2009

Bozo criminals for today come from Atlantic, Iowa, where it’s been very hot this summer. Police officers stopped by to check on our bozos after their trailer blew a tire. It was what they were hauling in that trailer that attracted the cops’ attention. In the trailer was a 1500 hundred-gallon tank filled with water stolen from a city fire hydrant. But it was their excuse for stealing the water that ensured their place in the Bozo Hall of Fame. They told the cops they’d taken the water with the intention of making a water slide. They’ve been charged with theft and public intoxication.
