The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Dorian Fox. He gets the award for the following.

Dorian Fox, 18, of suburban Boca Raton was arrested on charges of home-invasion robbery and aggravated battery after he stole up to a sleeping man's bed and began beating him with a golf club, police said.

Roused by the attack, 22-year-old John Hatfield complied with Fox's demands, handing over a black safe filled with cash and prescription pills.

As Fox made his escape, Hatfield's girlfriend, 23-year-old Christina Lazarou, grabbed a knife and tried to stab Fox before sending him tumbling down the stairs, she told police.

The safe broke open at the foot of the stairs, and Fox scrambled to pick up scattered pills and bank notes before bolting out the door, where a 16-year-old girl was waiting in a white car, police said.

Fox turned the key, but the engine wouldn't crank. He and the girl ran from the car; a police dog tracked them to a fence by the north side of the apartment building at 559 N.E. 44th St.

When Hatfield and Lazarou emerged from their apartment to confront the pair, they recognized the teen from the getaway car as Lazarou's best friend, police said. She was arrested and taken to the Palm Beach County Juvenile Assessment Center.

The Palm Beach Post headline said Mr. Fox had a bad day. Today isn't going to be any better, in addition to being humiliated and made into a laughingstock, Dorian Fox is today's Knucklehead of the Day.
