The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Charles Chambers. He gets the award for the following.

ANDERSON, S.C. - Authorities say a man drove a stolen car to the Anderson County Sheriff's Office to demand the return of nearly $2,000 officers seized from him during a drug arrest last June.

Deputies said after they told Charles Chambers, 36, to leave Tuesday afternoon, an officer noticed he got into a car that matched the description of a vehicle stolen about three hours earlier.

Another officer pulled the man over and told him to stop the car. The officer said Chambers stuck a screwdriver in the ignition to shut it off because the vehicle's key switch had been removed.

Authorities say Chambers was charged with possession of a stolen automobile, driving under suspension and a tag violation.

I don't think Charles Chambers will get back that $2,000 but he does get today's Knucklehead of the Day.

Thats almost as smart as expecting the NYT to back a republican for president, and then you get mad when they run a hit piece on him.

Not related in anyway to the story, but i just thought it serves as a good parallel to the idiots that thought McCain was going to get fair treatment from the media. hahahahaha

Or the guy who stabbed an enemy gang member 11 times, was chased and arrested. Man was dead, but the perps defense was that someone must have come by and stabbed him more, cuz he was alive when the accused ran from the scene!

DUI in front of KPD yields arrest
by The Garden Island

Police arrested a man on suspicion of driving while intoxicated early yesterday morning after he crashed into a boulder outside of the Lihu'e police station.

The driver, Lance Marushige, told one of the arresting officers that when he left Rob's Good Times Grill on Rice Street, he wanted to take "back roads," and therefore ended up crashing his Dodge Ram in front of an officer about to begin his shift.
