Today’s award goes to a somewhat befuddled car thief in Chicago.
A Grand Crossing man stole a towing company’s truck and then called 911 himself because he was upset that the truck’s driver dared to pull a gun on him, prosecutors said.
Elliott Scott, 22, is charged with aggravated possession of a stolen motor vehicle, misdemeanor theft, and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
“Mr. Scott called 911?” a befuddled Judge Charles Beach asked prosecutors after hearing their allegations.
“Yeah,” Scott interjected. “Right.”
Scott’s defense attorney quickly advised him, “it’s not best to talk about the charges” in court.
