Coronavirus has caused some more than others to do crazy things. But this might be the craziest. And possibly the best memeable mugshot we've seen in quite some time.
"Anthony Ponzi is charged with two felony counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer and several misdemeanor charges, including battery DUI and resisting arrest, Chicago police said." (FOX 29)
Man charged with coughing in Chicago cops’ faces and saying he had coronavirus https://t.co/0arevSKUbk— FOX 29 (@FOX29philly) March 23, 2020
Ponzi's scheme (HA see what I did there?) was to drive his Jeep on the wrong side of the road and crash into an innocent driver. (Only a Jeep driver, am I right?) Then, when police arrived and he resisted arrest he coughed in their faces and told them he has COVID-19. Brilliant.
He was arrested and brought to a hospital where he revealed he did not have the virus. What a shocker. If you're not quarantining yourself because of the virus, maybe think about doing so because there are more and more crazy people out acting like this.
This Chicago man is making all Florida men look like outstanding citizens.
