America’s Dumbest Criminal? Man Arrested In Florida After Wearing This T-Shirt

Seriously, this actually happened.


We think the concept of irony was lost on this man. That or he just likes to live life dangerously.

A man choosing his wardrobe this week  (that we assumed he thought would detract attention from his stash) decided to wear a t-shirt with the slogan:

“Who needs drugs?’ above the words ‘No, seriously, I have drugs.”

John Balmer from Hudson, Tampa Bay, Florida, was stopped by police after wearing the suggestive t-shirt.

Despite thinking it may be perceived as a joke, or anyone actually carrying illegal drugs with them would ever wear such an eye-catching top, we’re assuming Balmer thought this was at least funny to wear while carrying his stash.

When police searched him, he was arrested after they uncovered meth and marijuana.

In a last ditch effort to get away with his crime, Balmer tried to hand a “bag of green leafy substance” to the person standing behind him in a queue.

When the cashier noticed the exchange, they alerted the deputy officer who arrester the 50-year old for possession of drugs.

Been there, done that and now he’s worn the t-shirt.
