Unlike this guy who’s heading to Marine boot camp.
A defendant dropped down and performed 50 push-ups in court Friday, and a prosecutor dropped the charges against him. The dismissal of Chase C. Allen’s misdemeanor trespassing and disorderly conduct charges apparently helped smooth the way for the 20-year-old Marine recruit to report to boot camp.
Pretty cool. But his original arrest was pretty weird.
The charges stemmed from Allen’s April 28 arrest inside Wishard Memorial Hospital’s emergency room. After his discharge, he refused to leave his hospital bed and repeatedly told an off-duty sheriff’s deputy to arrest him, saying he was homeless, according to a police report.
I hope the Marines straighten him out. If not, he’s sure to end up in a Michael Moore documentary.
