Kevin searches far and wide to find some of the funniest and craziest stories about people who just aren’t thinking as clearly as they should be. They usually get in trouble for what they do and it makes headlines in the news. When that happens, we find the best of the best and bring you a little something we like to call, ‘People Are Dumb’.

Our first story comes out of Tuscaloosa, Alabama where a student at the University of Alabama is in jail after police say he made threats to LSU’s Tiger stadium. 19-year-old Connor Bruce Croll is suspected of calling in a bomb threat during Saturday’s game versus the University of Florida. Police say he admitted to calling in the bomb threat to stop the game because “His friend was on the verge of losing a large bet.” Now, that’s a wingman. He’s being held in Tuscaloosa without bond and is expected to face charges in Baton Rouge including making false bomb threats on school property.

In Illinois, a man was arrested after giving police a fake name despite having his real name tattooed on his neck. Matthew Bushman supposedly gave a false ID and Birth Certificate to officers. Authorities said the Bushman, or “Matty B” as it said right across his neck, had a warrant out for his arrest in Peoria County and so he lied about his name. He was arrested on October 11th for obstructing justice and booked at Coles County Jail.

Finally, a man tries to steal flute by sticking it down the back of his pants. This story will “crack” you up. The “cheeky” thief in the act. The surveillance video shows him walking around with the flute in his hand. The video shows him carrying the flute over to where the camera is and puts id down the back of his pants. The flute was so long it was comical. It was sticking out of his pants, it moved his shirt over and you could clearly see it, it was absurd. The thief was confronted before he could walk out the door and he said that he has a flute and that’s where he keeps his flute. It was taken out from his pants and the man got away empty-handed. The owner could not in good conscience ever have anybody put their lips on that instrument. So he decided to turn the “glut” flute, into a lamp. This is the best.
