Lashon Stuckey, 33, of Chicago either qualifies as father of the year or as the dumbest criminal of the day – maybe both. Stuckey, after being arrested on Monday, allegedly chewed through the squad car seat belt so he could attend his son’s birthday.
Stuckey was arrested for two counts of possession of a controlled substance (several bags of heroin) and one count of criminal damage to a property. He was also allegedly conducting a narcotics transaction.
After being arrested, Stuckey told the police that it was his son’s birthday and that he didn’t want to miss it. When he wasn’t allowed to leave the car, he allegedly chewed through the seat belt. Unfortunately for Stuckey, it didn’t work. He still missed his son’s birthday and he is being held on in lieu of $75,000 bail.
Here’s that story and other weird news:
Maybe Stuckey should have taken lessons from this Michigan man who removed his handcuffs and escaped the back seat of a police car. It was even caught on video:
