Better check if those palms are clean 'cause you'll be putting your faces into them in just a minute. Today's encounter of the sad kind is from Spring Hill, Florida, where a 23-year-old dude stole a Wii and pawned it for some booze-and-cigarette cash. It wasn't some Wii from the guy next door or from some random apartment - it was his mom's.
As soon as his mom noticed that her console was missing, Christopher Bayko simply told her that it was "at a friend's house" - a story he must've thought fullproof, except he forgot to hide the damn receipt. That's the kind of mistake that gets you in trouble in kindergarten
. As you might've guessed, mom sees the receipt, mom probably yelled her lungs out, and now the guy is facing charges of theft and dealing in stolen property.
All that for the US$ 56 he got for the Wii.
