Bad Costume Choice.

Halloween costumes are getting more elaborate all the time. Of course the basics like witch, vampire and pirate were the top adult costumes this year, but there are some really odd ones out there. A young man in Oxford, Ohio thought it would be great to dress up as a breathalyzer. the costume has three levels of sobriety, boring, life of the party, and sotally tober. (Gee, my spell check didn't like that last one. Go figure.) Of course, if you are going to wear a costume like that, you should be the designated driver. Unfortunately the young man didn't get that memo. When he was driving the wrong way down a one way street he naturally attracted the attention of the police. They had a better breathalyzer and his BAC was .158. The fact that he is 18 didn't help his case. Maybe next year he will pick a more generic costume.

A 27 year old Denver man also made a very bad choice. He was skateboarding and wiped out. He tore his pants, which happened to be his uniform pants. He worked for Blockbuster. He feared getting written up so he came up with a bright idea. Since his face was already marked up from the accident he decided to stab himself in the leg. He then went to work and claimed he was attacked by three men while on his way to work. Police quickly discovered holes in his story and he admitted the truth. Now he has been charged with filing a false police report and obstructing police. I think the write up would have been better.

Who needs to watch television. real life is more entertaining.
