Another week, another round Darwin-defying cretins who made local headlines.
You know the rules: Vote for the person you feel was the biggest idiot this week.
1. John Henry: A Missouri man arrested this weekend for possession of drug paraphernalia and what looked to be tools and supplies for a narcotics burglary. A traffic cop pulled over Henry and became suspicious of him when he saw scrawled in marker on Henry's clothing a threatening message directed at a fellow cop. Turns out the fellow cop had previously arrested Henry in a meth lab bust.
3. Donald Taylor: The Columbia resident who allegedly pushed his girlfriend through a glass door and then called the cops to complain that she'd broken into his apartment. Only problem, Taylor forgot that he had eight marijuana plants growing in open view inside his apartment and was arrested when the cops arrived to take his statement for the domestic disturbance call.
