Peter Gamblin, a 24-year-old former billiard champion in the UK, was busted for stealing a mobile phone after the victim called him up and asked for his name and address.
Uh...yeah sure. That's Peter Gamblin...G. A. M. B. L. I. N.
According to the court, Gamblin gave the victim his name and address as an "act of bravado". It took a jury only 25 minutes to convict him. Needless to say, this guy is either the world's biggest moron (next to this guy) or he has a serious arsehole friend that set him up to take the fall. [Telegraph via Fark]
