Tough Love Idiot IV
Richard Melius, who still lives with his parents despite being 21 years old, stole his dad’s car. Not big news, except that his dad is a sergeant in the Lakeland (Fla.) Police Department and the car was his police cruiser. Polk County Sheriff’s investigators say Melius had been harassing his ex-girlfriend by phone and “intimidated” her into leaving her new boyfriend’s house. When she did, Melius was waiting, and used the car’s lights to pull her over. When the girlfriend called her father for help, Melius scooted home, where he was arrested by sheriff’s deputies and charged with auto theft, stalking, impersonating a police officer, and driving with a suspended license. (Lakeland Ledger) ...Boy, he’ll be grounded for sure.
