SMH at this guy hiding in the bushes in the Wendy’s parking lot:
A man accused of stealing socks and underwear led police on a foot chase before he was caught hiding behind a trash bin, then arrested for the 100th time. Joseph Wilson, who turned 50 this year, reached the dubious milestone Thursday in Port St. Lucie.
According to an arrest affidavit, Wilson walked out of the Bealls department store at 10135 U.S. Highway 1 with the merchandise under his clothing. When a loss-prevention officer tried to confront Wilson, he jumped into a waiting minivan and ordered the driver to “take off,” the report said. Wilson’s friend didn’t take off, so the suspect hustled out of the other side of the vehicle and ran away, according to the affidavit. The officer lost him, but a witness called police a short time later to say Wilson was in the bushes in a Wendy’s parking lot just down the road.
When two officers arrived and found Wilson, the sweaty suspect first said he was out for a jog and just trying to cool off behind the trash bin. Eventually, he cited “hard times” and was taken into custody without any further struggle, the report said. The merchandise Wilson is accused of stealing was worth $174.
Prior to Thursday, Wilson had a record that included 37 felony arrests, 47 misdemeanors and 15 others. In all, he’s been convicted in 35 of those incidents.
50-years-old, and you’re still ganking underwear and socks??!?!?! C’mon Son!
