Connecticut Convict Lands Himself Inside Again on His Way Out
I would think that once you've done your time, you'd like to never see the inside of the prison walls again. Evidently, one Connecticut guy doesn't feel that way.
Okay, I'm thinking I'm not going out on a limb when I say, "Here's your sign!"
Back in December of 2016, the Connecticut Post reported a story about 22-year-old Marcus Colon being arrested in connection with thefts affecting several area towns. Fast forward to August 2017, and a day of freedom that should have been cause for excitement, apparently, was a day for stupidity.
According to ctpost.com, Marcus Colon, of Stamford, couldn't even make it out to see daylight from the Bridgeport Correctional Center. After spending nine months behind bars for his crimes back in 2016, Colon was on his way out. You know how people sometimes give what's called a "parting shot" while others offer words of advice? That's what apparently went down.
The report says that as a corrections officer was taking Colon to the front door, he offered up a bit of advice by saying, "Don't come back." That's when Colon offered up his "parting shot" by turning around and punching the corrections officer.
The Connecticut Post reports that police say fellow officers came to help their co-worker by hitting Colon with pepper spray and dragging him back to a cell. Colon has now been charged with interfering with an officer, assault on a public safety officer, breach of peace and disorderly conduct.
Thanks, buddy, for wasting some more tax payers' money. Stupid is as stupid does.
