Today’s winner is Michael Drennon. He gets the award for the following.
Drennon robbed Bensalem Bank on October 17, 2005, passing the teller a handwritten note made out on the back of a pay stub bearing his name. He was arrested shortly thereafter.
Using a old pay stub for a holdup note. That’s classic but at least he was recycling as this blogger notes.
Mr. Drennon was appealing his conviction, which he lost. There will no appeal of my decision, I name Michael Drennon today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
