10 Bizzare Arrests That Will Boggle Your Mind

Journalist

We all like to read about crimes that were well thought out and daring. They seemed to be enacted by characters larger than life, by people who are destined for the big screen. They are either ingeniously secretive or astounding in every way. Those are the criminals that make us forget petty crooks and other vagabonds.

However, sometimes the crimes - or arrests - are just bizarre. For every high speed chase of drug kingpin, there are many other arrests that are plain confounding or enacted on people who have not done anything that criminal. This article celebrates these bizarre cases of the law, so here they are, presented for your enjoyment!
