The Juice does not think he’s brilliant, which means, of course, that he is! Flipping the script, this gent was so confident he was smarter than the cops that he actually taunted them on Facebook. Guess how that ended up? Per The Times Leader (Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania):
The Freeland Police Department posted a photo of [Anthony James] Lescowitch at 9:19 p.m. Monday, noting that Lescowitch, 35, was wanted for aggravated assault and numerous other charges. The post asked that anyone knowing Lescowitch’s whereabouts to call police at 570-636-0111 or 911.
It turns out that the person who responded is the only one who ALWAYS knows where Lescowitch is – Lescowitch!
Had this gent known the consequences, his fingers probably would have been a lot stickier. As reported in the police log at Lancasteronline.com:

Sec. 4-7. Keeping or maintaining certain animals in the city.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to keep or maintain horses, mules, cows, cattle, chickens, poultry, or goats in the city, except for in special events, as approved by the city manager.
You just can’t go around arresting people for cussing, or you may be ponying up, as this Georgia city discovered. As reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Community activist Mary Kirkendoll grew so frustrated with Smyrna’s town hall question-and-answer session, she stood up and began to leave. Before she got to the door, she turned toward the audience and uttered a profanity. “This is [expletive],” she said during the April 21, 2009, meeting. “They are never going to tell the truth.”
Really, AJC? You can’t say “bullshit” when it’s a direct quote that’s at the heart of the story? Anyway …
