Doofus Of The Day #343

Today's Doofus is from Indiana.

Officers searching for a man wanted on methamphetamine charges found him hiding neck-deep in a liquid manure pit at a northeastern Indiana farm, police said.

Noble County sheriff's deputies thought they'd lost the man until an officer spotted him in the tank beneath an outbuilding floor on the farm near Albion.

Chief Deputy Doug Harp said the man, 52, had been neck-deep in the combination of hog and dog feces for at least an hour Tuesday evening. He later became combative and had to be shocked twice with a stun gun.

The suspect was treated at a hospital for hypothermia before he being taken to jail.

Here's a video clip showing the scene of the stink crime.

I'm most sorry for the poor police officer who had to transport Mr. Hovis in the back of his car! I trust they hosed him down thoroughly before loading him . . . perhaps that's how he contracted hypothermia?

That may be why over half our sheriff vehicles out here in the semi-boonies (we have paved roads!) are pick-ups. Not for the clearance or all-terrain drive, but for putting smelly miscreants in the bed thereof.

What could a judge/jury do to this guy that he hasn't already done to himself?

My Mom was a Sheriff. Thank goodness the only "floaters" she had to deal with were poor drowning victims.
