Arrested For Throwing Beer At Deputy, Fleeing
My nomination for Stupid Criminal of the Day goes to...
A Delhi man was arrested after allegedly throwing a beer can at a sheriff's deputy and sparking a high-speed pursuit.
Chris Baker, 19, pulled up next to a police vehicle early Monday morning and rolled down the driver's side window, according to the Merced County Sheriff's Department. Baker allegedly asked Deputy Delray Shelton if he wanted something to drink, then hurled an open 12-ounce can of Budweiser through his open window into the deputy's vehicle.
Baker then allegedly drove off and refused to stop when a nearby deputy gave pursuit. Baker allegedly sped through a parking lot and evaded pursuit on Hillside Avenue.
As authorities searched the areas, Deputy Shelton recognized Baker walking down the 9000 block Of Rochester Avenue and confronted him. Baker allegedly resisted arrest, and Shelton used his taser to subdue him.
Baker reportedly told deputies that he wanted to be arrested after his relationship with a girlfriend ended, and found it funny that he struck the deputy with the thrown beer.
Baker told deputies that he had only committed a misdemeanor and that he expected to be released in a day.
Do you suppose the deputies thanked him for the legal advice?
He is currently being held in the Merced Jail on $30,000 bail on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon, battery on a peace officer and resisting arrest, and could face a felony charge of evading a peace officer.

Ah, I know the area well. This is about 20 miles south of me. Redneck farm town slightly over run by illegals and everything else. This guy doesn't seem to be too bright upstairs. I see he got to feel the prongs of Mr Taser. I hope he had a good ride on the lightning as you all in LE put it. I hope they throw the book at him.
What is a 19 yr old doing with alcohol in his possession anyway? Drinking age is 21 here.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I laughed when I read that he was tased. I laughed harder when I read what he thought he'd get charged for and what he's ACTUALLY getting charged with. And I REALLY laughed at Jenna's and Ryan's comments.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
