An Indiana man who was arrested for a domestic violence-related offense was wearing an “I did not hit you, I high fived your face” T-shirt when he was taken into custody and later booked into the Vanderburgh County jail.
The suspect apparently got into an early morning altercation with his wife about Valentine’s Day, which occurred the day before, and allegedly punched her in the face.
“Aaron Crowe, 30, was arrested… on a misdemeanor domestic battery count after cops were dispatched to a Motel 6 in Evansville, where Crowe’s wife told officers that he pushed her and walloped her in the face. Crowe, whose wife had a bruise on her right cheek, told officers that the couple had been arguing about Valentine’s Day,” The Smoking Gun reported.
He was booked at 5:13 a.m. on February 15, according to Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office records.
This was another instance, Smoking Gun observed, about the mug shot of a suspect “arrested wearing a message T-shirt that fits their crime.”
“I don’t know what would possibly possess someone to buy this shirt, but I guess this idiot is the target customer,” WLNH radio claimed about the apparel with a disturbing, if not offensive, message.
Valentine’s Day unfortunately also turned violent rather than romantic for an Ohio couple. A woman in Washington County reportedly was so disappointed that her husband didn’t buy her a Valentine’s Day gift that she allegedly struck him in the head with a mini baseball bat. Sheriff’s deputies charged the wife with felonious assault and domestic violence. Her husband declined medical treatment, so presumably he wasn’t seriously injured, although he did lose consciousness in the assault.
Unrelated to Valentine’s Day, but as alluded to above, the suspect in the Indiana incident is not the only individual who has worn prophetic, memorable, and/or ironic apparel in connection with alleged lawbreaking, as the Inquisitr has previously chronicled.
These are instances, perhaps, when the fashion police and the real police overlap, as it were.
For example, a woman who allegedly shoplifted about $700 worth of goods from a Marshall’s retail store in the Orlando, Florida, area in August, 2015, was caught on surveillance video wearing a “won’t be caught” T-shirt. Cops finally arrested her in late November, 2015.
In April, 2015, in a separate Florida-based incident, a woman wearing a “won’t be caught” T-shirt and a female companion were filmed on a surveillance camera allegedly helping themselves to about $1,500 in perfume products from a beauty supply store in the Tampa area without paying.
Both suspects were subsequently arrested, but the woman wearing the T-shirt in question, who reportedly has a long rap sheet, apparently no-showed her court date and was considered a fugitive before being subsequently detained in early September.
In March, 2015, a Texas man wearing a T-shirt labeled “Warning: I Do Dumb Things” saw his mugshot go viral on social media after he was busted for an alleged ninth DUI charge.
Elsewhere, a Kentucky woman, arrested in November 2014, for possession of meth, happened to be wearing an “I Love Crystal Meth” T-Shirt when cops took her in. In May 2014, a man wearing a shirt that read “it’s all fun & games until the cops show up” was arrested in Idaho on suspicion of bank robbery. In a separate incident, an Oregon man wearing a T-shirt labeled “drunk as s**t” on the front found himself getting arrested in April 2014 for an alleged DUI and other charges.
