The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today’s winner is Gabriel Saucedo. He gets the award for the following

Arizona State University student Alex Botsios said he had no problem giving a nighttime intruder his wallet and guitars.

When the man asked for Botsios’ laptop, however, the first-year law student drew the line.

“I was like, ‘Dude, no — please, no!” Botsios said. “I have all my case notes…that’s four months of work!”

Police said Gabriel Saucedo entered Botsios’ apartment through an open window early Thursday morning. When Botsios woke up, Saucedo threatened him with a baseball bat, police said.

He was just like, ‘I’m going to smash your head in,'” Botsios said.

At that point, the law student wrestled the bat away and began punching Saucedo, Botsios said.

“I basically grabbed him and threw him this way, and he held onto the bat so it threw him to the ground,” he said.

Police said they took Saucedo to the hospital for stitches before they arrested him on charges of armed robbery and kidnapping. Other than a bruised knuckle and a few scratches, Botsios was unharmed.

If you’re going to threaten someone with a baseball bat, you better know how to use it. Also don’t try to steal a law student’s computer which has all his class notes on it. He’s liable to fight back. All of this earns Gabriel Saucedo today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
