Considering my previous post, it's perhaps fitting that we reach the next century in our Doofus Of The Day series with this report about a policeman in Florida.
Tomas Muñoz, a 15-year veteran of the department, has been suspended with pay after being arrested Saturday and charged with cocaine possession and carrying drug paraphernalia.
He says he’s innocent — and he was set up by his girlfriend’s pimp.
After posting $6,000 bond Monday, he told reporters for WFOR-CBS4 that his was a story of forbidden love.
“I met a girl — she happens to have a pimp, and we fell in love,” Muñoz said. “And he doesn’t let her be free. This came about because he set the whole thing up.”

What can I say, except that in his shoes, at the point I learned that "she happens to have a pimp", I would have decided to fall out of love with her. Right then and there. At once, if not sooner!
