Dressed to Impress or Dressed To Arrest?

go to jailDeciding what to wear everyday can be a taxing undertaking.  We all wake up in the morning, rub the sleep from our eyes and open the closet door to select the clothes we are going to wear that day.  Now for some, this task is easy…they just grab something that is clean and put it on.  This is a strategy used by most men and children…and the criteria of “clean” can be a very broad term.  Women on the other hand are a little more methodical about this process.  They coordinate shirts with skirts and pants with blouses and undergarments with shoes leading ultimately to the perfect outfit.  By the way, this is something that has baffled the male species for centuries.  Anyway, back to the point of this bail bond blog.  Sometimes a man, completely by accident is capable of pulling off the perfect outfit…and once again, this is usually completely by chance.

Earlier this week in Cape Coral, Florida a young man went through his usual morning routine, throwing on the closest, cleanest t-shirt he could fine.  Little did he know that in that split second he was picking out the perfect outfit for the day.  The shirt was a green short sleeved one with a Monopoly cartoon graphic on it of the Monopoly Man being dragged off to jail (basically the image that is on the Chance or Community Chest card you get when you play the game).   Why was this the perfect shirt?  Because later that day, this young man was arrested…and yes…dragged directly to jail.  His mug shot photo (show above) has become a classic and a police favorite.  So next time you are deciding what to wear in the morning, be careful, because life has a habit of imitating fashion.  BTW, I have been wearing my “I won  the Powerball Lottery shirt all week and nothing.  Read the original story below.
