Clearly eager to earn the title of Dumbest Criminal of All Time, 18-year-old Keithan Manuel was arrested after strolling into the Wilmer Police Department and attempting to rob an officer.

Murray realized where he was shortly after telling the cop to give up the goods while holding a white towel over his hands to mimic a gun, so he tried to change the subject, telling the officer he was there to check on a warrant. When he figured she wasn’t going to let him slide, he went all in and told her, “You do know I have a gun.” Pray for the youth, folks.

He was arrested easily and taken to Dallas County Jail where he was charged with several crimes, including robbery. Manuel’s defense: “Man, I play like that all the time, I didn't think she would take it seriously.”

In the immortal words of Craig in Friday, name one person in the hood you know that plays around like that.
