If these funny arrest stories keep coming from Florida, we may have to rename this section "Florida Arrest Stories"!
A common Christmas event that takes place in towns all over the country is the Shop With A Cop event. That is where local law enforcement officers take children from their community who may not have any Christmas presents and let them shop for some fun toys. It's a wonderful event every year that helps build community relations and ensures that children do not go without at Christmas.
So recently, in Osceola, FL, many local law enforcement officers were at the St. Cloud Walmart shopping with children. The Walmart store was filled with nearly 40 deputies alongside the forensics team, the community services officers, the OCSO Majors, and Sheriff Marcos R. Lopez.
During the event, a suspect named only as "Brad" was found to be shoplifting. Needless to say, it did not take law enforcement long to respond to the call from Walmart, seeing as the store was filled with them, and Brad was arrested right away.
The Osceola County Sheriff's Office posted this on their Facebook page, which went viral, and the comment section is quite entertaining. One poster was so inspired that he wrote a poem:
Brad thought he was Rad!
But Brad got caught being bad!
Now Brad is sad!
Don't Spend Christmas in Jail, folks!
