Bozo criminal for today was really in a big hurry. From Aiken, South Carolina comes the story of bozo Tom Barker who walked into a convenience store, grabbed two cases of Budweiser and dashed out the door without paying. He threw the beer into the back of his pickup and sped off. Perhaps "sped" is to strong a word. "Sputtered" more closely describes what happened. He almost made it out of the store parking lot before his truck ran out of gas. As he was trying to get the truck started again, one of the store employees grabbed him and held him until the cops arrived.
