Today’s stupid criminal story is brought to you courtesy of the Miami News Record. The paper reports that a man who tried to escape jail by giving a fake name was caught – because the person whose name he gave was wanted by police too. Furthermore, the conman – real name Mark Straughter – was already on probation after he was charged with giving a false name in an earlier incident. Police Spokesperson Steve Johnson said: "It's funny, but you would be surprised how often this happens.”
