Woman Arrested For April Fool’s Day Robbery Prank
It's becoming harder and harder to pull a good April Fool's Day prank. At 6 AM Monday morning, 20-year-old Susan Alexandria Tinker called the police from her job at the Waffle House in Hampton, Va. and reported a robbery. The cops rushed to the scene and the canines started sniffing for clues. Then, after an hour of searching for the perps...April Fool's?
The authorities didn't much appreciate Tinker's prank.
"Sometimes we'll get incidents where kids are playing around on the phone," Hampton Police Division Cpl. Mary Shackelford. "But usually it's nothing of this caliber."
Tinker was arrested for falsely summoning police. The misdemeanor charge is no joke as it comes with a penalty of up to a year in jail and/or a $2,500 fine. And now we all know who this year's April fool is.
