24 of the Funniest Reasons People Got Arrested

Getting arrested is no laughing matter — unless it’s for something so stupid you can’t help but crack up. It’s impossible to keep a straight face while telling your friends and family that you got arrested for throwing a piece of fried chicken at your husband. That’s a situation where you just have to take the L and accept that you will be haunted by the memory of your mugshot every time you drive past a KFC

Poultry aside, Redditors have revealed the funniest times they ended up in the clink, including one person who got booked over… books.  

 в 4y Had a boyfriend in high school that was a bit of a delinquent. Не and some friends found a box of dildos outside. They took this trash and because they were teens proceeded to put these all over the neighborhood, the dildos were hollow so they put them on car antennas, etc. Turns out the box was sitting outside a porn shop, and it wasn't trash, it was merchandise, now stolen. Poor boy had to tell that story every time someone asked how he ended up in Juvey. ... 42

Midnite_StOrm . 4y Knowingly Bringing a BB gun into school and causing a lockdown. His defence was that he forgot it was in there from the night before at his friends house and people only saw it when he pulled it out to show his friend. Then someone called the cops.

The fucking madman did it but there was a cop not too far away and he saw. Got arrested for indecent exposure but nothing too serious

BigBlueJAH . 4y My buddy hates anyone knowing about this, but it's pretty funny. Не went to the courthouse to pay a speeding ticket and at the metal detector he emptied his pockets into the container. This included a small bag of weed.

 . 4y Stick with me here. A friend of mine in college had a fake ID and was arrested for public intoxication. Не didn't remember a thing, and upon his release we asked if they also charged him with a minor in possession of alcohol thru consumption. Не didn't know so we asked to see his citation. Turns out, when he got arrested, he showed the police his fake ID rather than his real one. So whomever the ID belongs to, you have a public intoxication charge in Lancaster county in Nebraska as of 10 years ago! And therefore,

DentedAnvil . 4y Couple friends of mine climbed up a microwave tower in the middle of town.
