Damn you, Wikipedia!

Justin Miret is a 22-year-old man who is not the brightest fella. Not only did Miret decide to drive with no insurance, but he decided to get behind the wheel of his car with a suspended license. But that’s not even what makes him not so bright, because Miret actually blamed his arrest on Wikipedia.

Miret was caught running a stop sign in Port. St. Lucie, and police quickly discovered that his license had been suspended last year, so of course Miret was screwed. But while police was taking to Miret to jail, this is what he said:

“That’s the last time I listen to Wikipedia about driving. It said I would just get a ticket.”

That’s right, folks. This dude got behind the wheel of a car with no license or insurance because Wikipedia said it would be fine. No harm, no foul.

According to an arrest affidavit, Miret screamed at a policeman and balled up his fist to try to intimidate the police officer. Miret was of course arrested, complained about Wikipedia, and then was charged with a pair of misdemeanors.

What a guy.
