Man tries to get arrested to get a good night's sleep

Aug. 31, 2010

A drunken Brookfield man searching for a place to sleep tried to get caught stealing so he could spend the night in a jailhouse bed, police said.

An officer saw the man steal a number plate from a sign at a gas station at 2:41 a.m. Friday, according to Brookfield police.

When asked why he took the plate, the man said he was drunk and desperate for a warm bed - at any cost.

The man was not cited, and was released to his mother.
