Back in the day, I would post A LOT of “Hot Mug Shots of the Day”s, but stopped when people accused me of glorifying/drooling over criminals. Fair enough, though I think it’s safe to drool A TINY BIT over Bradford Gibbon II, above, who recently broke into an Austin, Texas, home wearing a Beto O’Rourke campaign shirt and stole a Popsicle.
I mean, as far as crimes go, that’s just mildly weird.
via CBS Austin:
According to an affidavit, a witness told police that he was doing yard work and saw the suspect, 28-year-old James Bradford Gibbon II, wearing a Beto T-shirt and lingering at the front door of his neighbor’s home.
When the witness asked Gibbon what he was doing, he said that he was “campaigning for Beto for president.”
Police say the witness warned Gibbon about the dogs at the home, since he believed he would be soliciting there. A short time later, the witness noticed Gibbon come out of the house and enter the backyard.
The homeowner told police she went into the kitchen and found Gibbon eating a Popsicle. She confronted him and he said it was a “misunderstanding” before backing out of the house. The woman’s son called 911.
When police arrived, Gibbon reportedly said he knew he did not have permission to enter the home, but broke in anyway through a side door.
Once inside, police say he admitted to going through a wallet, briefcase, and an iPad before helping himself to a Popsicle.
So what do you think? Cottonmouth cutie or dangerous creepazoid? And more importantly: WOULD YOU?
