Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The First Day of Spring Knucklehead Festival Part Seven

Our seventh winner is Rachel Otto. She gets the award for the following.

BOCA RATON -- Police arrested a 21-year-old Boca Raton woman for impersonating a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputy and conducting a traffic stop, complete with handcuffing a victim, about 4 p.m. Tuesday in the 3000 block of Clint Moore Road.

Computer Web designer Rachel Otto, dressed in Army camouflage, allegedly had victim Michael Mellin, 20, cuffed on the floor because he cut her off, according to an arrest report. She initially told police she was a PBSO deputy. When police asked her for identification, she removed the handcuffs from Mellin and walked back to her 2000 BMW. She said she was making a citizen's arrest for road rage and started naming people she knew in PBSO.

Mellin said he was headed eastbound in the 4000 block of Clint Moore Road when two cars were speeding up behind him, a BMW and a Honda. Mellin said he thought Otto was a male and saw her put on a utility belt, that police said had mace and handcuffs, and walked over to him asking for his driver's license and registration. Mellin left and the two cars chased him and Otto pointed mace at him, according to the police report.

Mellin was boxed in and pulled over, he told police. Otto then cuffed him, police said. Boca Raton Police pulled over when they saw the scene and arrested her.

The driver of the Honda, Philip Krizmanich, told police he thought Otto was a deputy and he was helping out.
Why people like this man or woman do stupid acts like this is beyond me.

Oh and you got to love the Palm Beach Post's headline for their coverage of this story.

Boca police: Cross-dressing fake deputy arrested

LOL looking at Otto's mug shot, TFM has a hard time telling if its a man or a woman but one thing is sure, Rachel Otto is today's seventh Knucklehead of the Day.
