 TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

    25-year-old Prionda Hill, a Cleveland woman who was arrested after taking the phrase, "Jesus take the wheel," a bit too literally.
    Hill told police she was driving when “God told her to let go of the wheel and he would take it from here.”
    Unfortunately, God quickly slammed into a motorcycle, throwing the male driver to the ground and running him over.
    The man suffered severe but non-threatening injuries, but Hill kept going, hitting a pickup truck twice and finally stopping when her car crashed into an island between two fast food restaurants.
    When police caught up to her, she was arrested for failure to stop at an accident and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
    Jesus was not charged in the accident.



AND THEN THERE'S .....

    Julius Lupowitz, an Australian man who was arrested after he called in a fake murder so he could get out of a speeding ticket.
    Lupowitz was pulled over for speeding, but he called in a murder in progress in hopes that the cops would be dispatched to the scene.
    As the dispatcher broadcasted the murder, he mentioned the 911 caller's name was a Julius Lupowitz.
    The officer who had pulled him over for speeding heard the dispatch and realized Lupowitz was the same person who made the 911 calls and arrested him.
     Lupowitz is facing up to five years behind bars and the original $209 fine for speeding.



OR HOW ABOUT .....

    John David Martinez, 68, a Denver man who was arrested for bank robbery after driving his own car and wearing a T-shirt inside that had his name on it.
    Martinez successfully got a teller to fill his bag with money, but when he fled in his silver Honda, several witnesses got the plate number.
    Police responding to the robbery quickly identified him as the suspect and arrested him at a local motel.

AND THEN THERE'S .....

    Joseph Carl, 48, a Florida man whose night of partying ended when he was run over by his own truck.    Carl, who had been drinking, crashed into another vehicle that was stopped at a red light.    Carl then leaped from his pickup to confront the other driver, but failed to put his truck in park.    The frightened woman in the other car sped off, so there was nothing left to keep Carl's Dodge 1500 from moving.
    In a last ditch effort, Carl put out his arms and tried to stop it, but it ran over him.
    He was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries.


OKAY, ONE MORE .....

    Police caught up with Kessler some time later and charged him with unarmed burglary of an unoccupied structure and theft.

    Driskell told police he spent some of the $2,000 he got from the robbery on marijuana.
