  • CrystalMikey

    Damn, someone stole a Bobcat. Would love to see them cruise down the street in that thing going about 10 mph.

    • JamesE

      how is that even possible without someone noticing?

      • ARLwahoo

        Maybe on a trailer?

    • nom de guerre

      They most likely placed the Bobcat on a lowboy trailer and towed it away.

    • Wishful

      Too bad it wasn’t Bobcat Goldthwait…

    • Philip MacKenzie III

      RootBoySlim stole a streetsweeper once after leaving the Jimmy Carter Center. He drove it away.

    • MrsKerin

      I love how they give the model number, too — like, oh…it’s just a crappy S250, no big loss.

  • Jake

    Like stalking, tt’s only indecent exposure if you are unattractive. I’ve dated several women I’ve met this same way – they liked what they saw.

    • Not Buying It

      Nice try, Kendrick. Now put it back in your pants.

      • Clarendon Skank

        No, I can vouch for him.

  • Douglas Parker

    I’m stumped as to why that didn’t woo her.

    • Hee-Haw

      He had significant shrinkage.

  • JamesE

    I’m still waiting for “Man exposes himself while flipping SUV” story.

    • Major Pup McPuppo Jr.

      on the way to get froyo

      • JamesE

        Let’s do this.

  • jackson

    So the resisting arrest was “attempting to flee the scene by foot” and not assaulting an officer.

  • Douglas Parker

    No mas pantalones.

  • Matt G

    Suspects are getting younger and younger.

    • Swag

      Still just as black.

      • KathyInArlington

        My, aren’t we racist?

      • awh hells bells

        Let’s bring back the stocks. Being locked up in a public setting and pelted with rotten vegetables might be a good deterrent to some of these OG poseurs. I’d assume it’d be hard to look like one has ‘swag’ after getting hit in the face with a tomato.

  • WeiQiang

    that yellow hoodie certainly wouldn’t attract attention

  • MO

    I want to hear more about the malicious wounding by a mob. So this 34 year old dude was drunk at 4 in the afternoon and got pissed on the road so he wanted to fight some yooooths?

  • Hank

    So where’s your Messiah now? Apparently thieving and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
