Why do criminals do stupid things? Maybe the explanation is simply they are high on drugs. Recently, a man in North Carolina found that laughing in court is really no laughing matter.
A Fayetteville, N.C. man was waiting for his case to be heard when the judge heard him laughing in the courtroom. The judge asked him why he was laughing, but 47-year-old Johnny Montgomery refused to answer the judge. As a result, the judge ordered Montgomery to jail on a misdemeanor charge.
When the deputies were preparing to take him to jail, they found more than 3 grams of crack cocaine on him. Needless to say he was charged with felony drug possession and thrown in jail.
What was he thinking? Why would anyone show up in court with crack cocaine and expect to walk out of the courthouse unscathed. Just another stupid criminal doing what they do best – being stupid.
