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

July 1, 2010

Bozo criminal for today proves the old adage that the Bozo Apple Doesn’t Fall Far From the Tree. From Paducah, Kentucky, comes the story of bozo Richard Tucker who was in jail on theft charges. His mother knew that his bond would be reduced if he could prove that he had a job. So, she did what any Bozo Mom would do, she forged a letter from a local company stating that her son was employed by them. Which might have been a good idea if only she’d one her research beforehand. She didn’t and consequently she misspelled the name of the company he supposedly worked for. He’s still in jail. She’s joined him, charged with evidence tampering.
