Stupid Criminals: The “Drunken Irony” Edition

Catch the irony here (emphasis mine)?

JACKSON, Mo. (AP) – Curtis Lemons was supposed to report for jury duty in a drunk driving case. Instead, according to authorities, the 50-year-old Cape Girardeau man skipped the jury duty so he could drink himself.

Lemons received a summons to appear as a prospective juror in the case. When he didn’t show up on Monday, a bailiff called his house. Lemons told the bailiff he was too busy to come to court.

The dood got a contempt of court charge with a $250 fine.  Man…how many cases of beer could he have bought with that?!?
