The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today’s winner is Paul Parrish II. He gets the award for the following.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Charleston police said a man tried to rob a movie rental store with an unusual weapon — an empty cheesecake box. Earlier this week, the suspect placed the box on the counter of the Movie Gallery with a note saying it contained a bomb. He told the clerk the bomb would be detonated remotely if he wasn’t given cash.

The clerk refused and the suspect fled.

Police arrested 43-year-old Paul Parrish II of Charleston on Wednesday.

Sgt. Aaron James said Parrish allegedly confessed after he was shown a store video of the attempted robbery. Parrish allegedly told police he needed money for gas and cigarettes.

Maybe AP deserves a KOD runnerup for one too many allegedly.

I’m wondering if the cheesecake was Sara Lee or Entenmann’s . Never mind, I name Paul Parrish II today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
