This guy wins the dumbass prize: Teenager Tried To Rob Officer At Police Station! LOL!!!!

WILMER (CBSDFW.COM)– Keithan Manuel is sitting inside the Dallas County Jail Tuesday night waiting for someone to believe him –– it was a joke, he told investigators. He didn’t really want to rob that police station.

Police, however, say the 18-year-old walked into the Wilmer Police Department Saturday evening with a white towel covering his hands.

Police Chief Victor Kemp described the incident saying, “Yeah well, a young man walked into the lobby and approached the dispatch window there and told our Communications Officer ‘give me all your money.’”

After pointing a towel-covered hand at the officer and making the statement, Manuel soon changed his tune and claimed he was there to get some information.

“He said he’d like to check on a warrant, but it was pretty obvious it was a situation … he gave a different name and after a few moments of maybe playing it off he said ‘you do know I have a gun’. At that point he seemed to be very serious,” Kemp said.

It was then the officer decided she didn’t feel like ‘joking’.

“She called for officers immediately and called for backup from another agency,” Kemp recalled. “The officers arrived and were able to take him down at gunpoint.”

Manuel didn’t have a weapon, but dispatcher Patrice Hughey said he said otherwise, recalling the teen telling her, “Well, you know I have a gun, right?”

“I didn’t say nothing like that, I swear to God I didn’t say nothing like that; that’s why they didn’t find no guns on me,” Manuel said. “Man I play like that all the time, I didn’t think she would take it seriously.”

Manuel remains is in the Dallas County Jail with a $200,000 bond for several charges, including Robbery.

“This young man wasn’t using his head for sure,” he said. “You hear of those World’s Dumbest Criminals every once in a while but you never think it’s gonna happen in your city.”

  1. Kemp has received very few mtinues over the last seasons and Magilton just subbed him in the first half. A reaction I would expect. I have been in such a situation before and I honestly could have mauled the coach at that point, no matter how bad I was playing. Although, it is up for discussion as Kemp’s football was much similar to a dogs dinner. Kemp was once a decent asset to the Victory three to four seasons ago, and it is quite sad to see him leave in such a manner. Despite the fact he has only received a one match ban, I really can’t see him playing again as he is currently fallen out of line with the new manager, thirty-one years of age, injured, in horrible form and seemingly far back in defender preferences. Not connected to this topic, I would like to add that I believe Melbourne Victory will (at least try) to sign Mark Milligan as a permanent centre back. Just my opinion.
