A Cheyenne man who doused himself with white latex paint in hopes of avoiding a police Taser  was hit with the stun gun anyway.

What an idiot. Everyone knows that only works with semi-gloss.

Wyocowboy would know better.

This guy needs a primer on basic physics.

During his brush with the law, he bristled.

And now he has a stain on his record.

Pigment to just tase him, but he nearly dyed.

If they didn't tase him, he would have varnished without a trace.

This is one case that won't be dismissed for lacquer evidence.

Slow news day. Like watching suspects dry.

"I am not enamel! I am a man!"

When they tased, he glazed.

silly meanie & annie :)

'Repaint, you thinner! Repaint, and thin no more!


Color me surprised.

He must have given this a lot of thought.
No, not really.

Cops got the dropcloth on him.

Don't fire until you see the white of his thighs.

...and caught the perpintime.

You're right, Nursecindy... He should have doused himself with kerosene.

Wait...the police stood there and watched while the man painted himself? And since when has incurring dry cleaning become a felony?

veee - maybe the guy had a prior record, and this was his second coat. Then, three strokes and he's out.

So where did the phrase "Let's see him paint his way out of this one" originally come from?

Well, you see, Michelangelo had lost this bet, and .....

*snorks* all around!
