The actual title from Lowering the Bar is “Clown-Suited Blackmailer on a Tiny Bike Gets Prison” which is just too good to pass up.
A man from Redwood City California (just one city north of where I work on the San Francisco Peninsula) impersonated a federal immigration official to extort $50,000 from some relatives. The SF Chronicle says Frank Salvador Solorza was arrested after taking the payoff while riding a child’s bicycle “dressed in a clown suit, a clown glitter wig, a Pirates of the Caribbean hat (complete with dreadlocks) and sunglasses.”
Why oh why can’t there be photos to go with this?
You’re not the only one 🙂
