Meet 20-year-old Jarious Tremayne Mock. Thanks from a tip from the smoking gun website, we all learn a valuable lesson as to how to turn a bad day into something much worse.
The night started with Mr. Mock leaving a nightclub and drunkenly shouting “F–k the police” as he saw nearby officers. The cops responded by giving him a citation for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. Per usual regulations, the officers ran the North Carolinian man for warrants and they discovered he had an outstanding warrant for a failure to appear on a possession of marijuana charge!
This cost him an arrest. He was taken to jail where he was then told that he could make bail of only $200 if he wished. He told the cops the money was in his wallet. What the police found instead earned him a felony charge. The police discovered a counterfeit $100 bill and a fake $20 bill! His bail was increased to $2,000 and he is now facing a load of charges.
In Florida, he would be facing two misdemeanor and two felony counts, all because he got the cop’s attention at the worst time possible!
