    Last night, our daughter was at the neighbor's house watching a movie, so the wife and I decide to go to Wal Mart sans kid to pick up her last few "I want ___________ for Christmas" presents.

    After we get done in white trash hell, we stop for coffee at my Circle K on the way home.

    While I wait for the pot to brew (yes, I AM picky and like my coffee fresh) a little commotion starts by the register.

    Nothing violent, just some douchebag cussing the girl behind the counter because she is refusing a tobacco and alcohol sale due to no ID.

    I get our coffee and head toward the counter.

    The guy has a 750ml bottle of Rare Reserve Vodka (think rubbing alcohol in a plastic bottle) and two packs of GPC 100's on the counter.

    Now the guy is cussing more loudly....dropping the F Bomb, the C Word, and generally being a douchebag. As yet, no crime has been comitted, as the clerk has not asked him to leave, and disturbing the peace on private property, even in a public access location is a hard one to make stick.

    Finally...I suggest to the clerk, that she ask him to leave, to give ME or my wife who is a currently serving officer grounds to act.

    The clerk takes the hint, and tells the douchebag to leave.

    He refuses, and picks up the vodka and smokes. He puts the smokes into his pocket, and sticks the vodka into his jacket.

    BINGO....Now his *** belongs to ME. He has refused to leave (criminal trespass), AND BINGO...SHOPLIFTING (of a controlled substance).

    My wife shows her badge and identifies herself, and gives him a chance to put the items back on the counter and leave.

    He gets mouthy with her...there's that C Word again...and the "What'cha gonna do? You ain't ****...blah blah blah...I got people 'round here....blah blah blah..."

    The next thing he knows....he's face down on the counter, getting hooked up.

    My wife would have made a GREAT partner...she had her cuffs out of her purse while I put him into an arm bar, and she hooked him up...and I never had to say a word to her.

    On the search incidental and pursuant to arrest, my wife found not one but TWO gram bindles of meth. Stupid tweakers.

    I use my cell to call the direct line to dispatch and have a cruiser come by and transport him to the jail. The deputy who came by called a hook to have his truck towed and we gave him the arrest. Paperwork avoidance. We were only a little late getting home.

    Good time had by all. Who says there's not a cop around when you need one?

    The moral of this story....Don't go to jail for being stupid.

    That whole thing stinks all around. Sorry he was who he was, sorry he was where he was, sorry he was doing what he was doing, sorry youse had to do what you did.

    Question; How is it shoplifting if he hasn’t left the premises?

    He put unpaid for items into his pocket and into his jacket that the clerk had LEGALLY refused to sell. Even if he had (didn't) thrown an amount of money equal to or greater than the cost of the items on the counter and walked out, he would STILL be guilty of larceny under state law governing tobacco and liquor sales. In Arizona...concealment equals shoplifting.

    He picked UP those items and placed them into his pocket and into his jacket AFTER a lawful order to leave the premises was given by the clerk who had already refused the sale of controlled substances because he refused to show, or did not posess proper identification.

    In Arizona a retail establishment can refuse the sale of alcohol or tobacco FOR ANY REASON...in this case the reason happened to be becasue the guy had no ID. He didn't look "30"...if I had been in her shoes, I'd have refused the sale too. In Arizona, it is a misdemeanor accompanied by an average fine of $500 to sell alcohol or tobacco products to a minor..so she was in a tough spot no matter how the cheese got sliced.

    Maybe its not actually shoplifting, but it was very clear intent to commit a crime. He put it in his pockets and headed toward the door, on purpose. Close enough in my book.

    Hey AZ, was it the same clerk who hit on you? If so, your her hero now. you better watch out, there will be no stopping her.

    AZL, way to go! you and the wife! idiot must have been on a little bit of his "medication" to be such an %$s. well jail is usually full of stupid people. sounds like he was given a choice to do the smart thing but let stupidity cloud his judgement. gee this will cost him legal fees, impound fees, charges for shoplifting, trespassing and possesion of narcotics. think he gets the message now?

    Is there any other way to go to jail???? I don't believe I ever put anyone in jail who didn't go because they weren't stupid??? :confused:

    Good bust, though! I always love the ones where I don't have to do the paperwork! :D

    Brother...you know damned good and well MOST folks go to jail because they didn't SHUT UP, and talked their way into a cell. That equals stupid in my book too!

    Amen.

    I miss the good ole days sitting out on the deck at the bar watching the drunk wannbe bad ***'s mouth off to the boys in blue , given ample opportunity to walk away and go home to a warm bed but they ended up taking the asphalt taste test with a knee in the lower back . But I was always more of a fan of watching them get sprayed or getting lit up .
    Among my favorite lines that ensured an *** whipping by the leos were :
    You aint Sh1* !
    F U
    Watcha gonna do ?
    I know people !
    Im gonna whip your *** !
    Pig
    Boys and Girls ..... None of thee above comments will ensure your night will end well and will more than likely end you up in jail with blood coming from somewhere on your body

    Ive had to deal with more beligerant drunks than i can count, we have about 25 bars in the county where i live. The stupidity that they do or say is endless. One of the more memorable instances is one night we were called to one of the bars due to 2 brothers trying to fight everyone. When i arrive on scene i observe one of the brothers outside and punch another person in the face. When i made contact with the individual i advised him to turn around and before i could say anything else he yells "f*** you!" and then he swings at me. I already saw the punch coming so i pushed him causing him to miss and then he takes off running. I quickly caught up to him and pulled the X26 and just let him ride the lightening. He was still in full stride and "LOUDLY" sh!t himself all the way to the ground until the 5 seconds was up. Thats when being a K9 handler comes in handy.....you dont transport..lol

    Sounds like a fun time. Sounds like he got just what he deserved.

    Why would his trespass have been a felony, assuming he didn't have the shoplifting issue?
