Thanks to Bozo News Hawk Terri Colburn for sending in today’s report. From Magnolia, Arkansas, comes the story of bozo Sam Toler who walked into a Wal-Mart and bought a pair of bolt cutters. Perfectly legal. But a few things aroused attention. First was the time of day, 4:30 in the morning. And second, the cashier noticed he was wearing handcuffs. And third, after buying the bolt cutters, he headed to the store’s restroom where he cut off the handcuffs. After checking him out, the clerk called the cops who arrested him in the parking lot. Turns out he’d been arrested in Louisiana the night before and was on the run after escaping from custody.
