This column pokes fun at those who are not the sharpest tool in the crime shed. However, this week's perp derp gets a gold star from me for the effort he put forth during an encounter with police.
According to CBS, a man was pulled over after a police officer noticed the car was registered to someone wanted on a warrant. The officer also witnessed that the passenger was not wearing his seatbelt. After putting on his lights and pulling the gentlemen over, he discovered the passenger was also wanted on a controlled substance warrant. Double bonus.
The police officer searched the suspect, who pulled out a secret weapon: a get out of jail free card. Yes, the card from Monopoly’s “Chance” pile. The suspect took his chance but failed. He was still placed under arrest and went to jail—and he did not collect $200 either.
The officer appreciated the humor so much that he shared the story with the manager of their department's Facebook page.
