Poor Donald Noone, not only has he been arrested for one of the dumbest attempts at theft I’ve ever heard, it’s actually the second time he’s been arrested for the same stunt. The 65-year-old man was arrested this week after he attempted to shoplift a rack of ribs from a grocery story by shoving them down his pants.
The meat lover was arrested for the exact same crime in May 2011 according to the Sentinel. Although his crime was deserving of a punishment I have to give it up to him for attempting to up the ante, the ribs this time were worth $20.48, while his last take was worth just $13.34.
Here’s a non-shocker, police say during both attempts Noone was very intoxicated.
During one citation he literally fell off a sidewalk into traffic and eventually passed out on the front porch of a home in the middle of the day before arguing with a group of men at 2:20 in the morning.
The arrest is also the sixth for Noone in the last five months, all related to public drunkenness.
What type of punishment do you think would fit such an odd crime? I’m thinking mandatory alcoholics anonymous meetings and perhaps some community service cleaning up at a slaughter house.
