Did We See This on Cops?

Just want to make sure that sunk in: his 25th offense.

Among other things he ran red lights, a DUI, a second DUI and, last but not least, drove around town with a suspended license. While Florida's oddballs still have him beat, it is nevertheless baffling that the man told the judge that he was "wrong for driving." Perhaps he should have considered that after being sentenced to jail in '99 after his second DUI. Or even sooner, like on his 15th charge of driving with a suspended license, when his crime became a felony.

Anyway, 45-year-old Willie Mabry asked for a trial, and admitted he was wrong, which will thankfully get him off the streets for 3 to 7 years. Then again, this is America, so it will probably only keep him off the streets for ... wait, how the hell long is Paris in jail for? Well, a few weeks longer than that.
