World’s Dumbest Criminal: Breaks in, Drinks Champagne, Passes Out in Woman’s Bed

Wow. Remember that show about the world’s dumbest criminals? I used to watch it and laugh because it was baffling to me that they could be so ignorant!

Here’s a new one, and he could have been the star of the show!

An Australian man broke into a home and would have been a thief, if he’d made it out of the house that is. Instead, he was sidetracked by a bottle of bubbly. After drinking some of the champagne, the drunk man passed out in the homeowner’s bed.

A woman told police she arrived home in Esperance, Australia, to find a man, 36, passed out in her bed, Australian network ABC News reported. An open bottle of Louis Perdrier Champagne was also spotted nearby.

“He has consumed some Champagne, I’m not sure how expensive it was, but in the photo, it looks expensive,” Esperance Senior Sgt. Richard Moore told the network.

Moore added: “It must have been quite potent because he has fallen asleep in the resident’s bed, which is not a good thing, and the owner has returned home and located this male person in her bed.”

The woman left her home and called police. Officers arrived to find the man “highly intoxicated.” The would-be burglar’s blood alcohol level was eight times the Australian legal driving limit, according to ABC News.

“This is a bit weird, to fall asleep in the bed and be laying there when police came in,” Moore said.

What an idiot! The man was charged with both burglary and stealing.

Here is a compilation of 10 more dumb criminals who were caught on camera. You won’t be sorry.
