CT’s Finest: Dumb Arrest of the Week- “This is a Stick Up”
This is 2013. There are certain things most people know you simply can’t do. You can’t yell “I have a bomb” in an airport. You can’t make any jokes about people that have suffered from cancer or AIDS… Oddly though, STD’s are still fair game. No joking about 9/11- Ever. But the number one thing you never do is yell “This is a stick up” in a bank. No one is stupid enough to do that. Oh wait, yes there is… and he was arrested this week in Bridgeport.
Hiram McReynolds, a 31-year-old from Bridgeport, allegedly entered a People’s United Bank Branch last week. H He then yelled out “This is a stick up!”. When police showed up, he claimed that he was just kidding. Really? That’s the kind of weird, sick, twisted sense of humor you have? You just randomly yell “This is a stick up” in a bank? Seems like you have the worst sense of humor of anyone. Ever.
What makes this whole story even more nuts is that he has a prior arrest record. He was convicted and served two years in prison for an arrest that dates back to 2010. He fired 20 gunshots into the air out of his apartment window from a high-powered rifle in Bridgeport, was that hilarious too?
He is scheduled to appear in court this Friday.
Let’s set the record straight- Here’s a list of things that should never come out of your mouth under any circumstances:
I have a gun.
This is a stick up.
I’m going to blow this place up.
Really, any time you fake threaten to harm people, it’s not funny.
(The Not So Obvious)
You’re almost as hot as your mom.
I can’t believe you just had a baby, you still look so pregnant!
I have a gun in my pocket, I’m not happy to see you.
Teenage girls are hot. (Note: Unacceptable if you are over 20 year-old)
Wanna hook up and sleep over? I live in my Mom’s basement. (I know this one from experience… He was 34.)
I’m sure there’s a ton that I forgot- Add them in the comments section.
