Not the sharpest crayon in the box

A man from Georgia who the police were looking for got caught because he tried to get a job with the police!

This sounds like something from a funny story, right? Let’s dive into the details.

Justin Carter, who is 24, was being searched for by the police all over the country. He had done some things wrong in Georgia. He thought he needed money while he was hiding from the police. So, what did he do? He tried to get a job as a police officer in a different state, Arkansas! He did this while he was hiding in South Carolina.

The funny part is, when he applied for the job, he used a fake name. But the police are very smart. They quickly found out his real name using their computers. They knew he was the guy they were looking for.

The police then told him to come back for another chat, but they were really planning to catch him. Before catching him, they made him do a big fitness test! He probably got very tired and sweaty. After the test, they told him they knew who he was and arrested him.

And guess what? He’s not the only one who tried this. Just last year, a woman who the police were looking for also tried to get a job as a police officer!


And they hired both of them and gave them Lieutenant bars to start.


Only a Lieutenant? They’re slipping! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:



You’re shytin’ me :grin:


True story: Once upon a time I was going through the hiring process with a local police department. At the very first in person setting, a classroom size with a couple officers and thirty or forty applicants showing up for to start the full court press of background books and signing stuff, one of the applicants raised his hand and asked:

“What if we have an active warrant?”

The two officers stop, look at each other, Bert stare back, look at each other again…“you should probably get that taken care of first”


Did he follow with “asking for a friend?”


Nope. Just, straight up.
