Bozo criminal for today comes from Centerton, Arkansas where bozo Milton Haynes came home to discover the electric company had turned off the power at his home due to non-payment of his bill. No problem, thought our bozo, I’ll just reconnect it myself. So, after downing four or five cold beers, he hauled out his aluminum ladder, leaned it up against the utility pole and attempted to re-connect the power line to the house service head, using his bear hands. According to the local power company, he was zapped with 7,620 volts of electricity and should consider himself lucky to have escaped with severe burns on his hands and wrists. When he recovers, he’ll be charged with theft and criminal trespass.
