Dumb Crime of the Week 5/10/13

by Joe

If you're trying to quit smoking, most people use the patch or chew gum. For one woman in California, she decided that spending some time in jail would help her quit.


Etta Lopez decided the best strategy to quit smoking was to get thrown in jail! Lopez, 31, followed through on her plan and slapped a police officer this past Wednesday. She told the cop, "I want to go to jail so I'll be forced to go without cigarettes". 

Sure enough, Lopez is behind bars for assault of a police officer.

Why not just...oh, I don't know...try quitting like normal people do?

And this is your dumb criminal of the week!
