Massachusetts man William Mavrides was arrested Thursday at a subway station, after he bragged to a police officer about his criminal status and arrest warrants.
Mavrides was waiting at the Quincy Center MBTA station at 9:30p.m. when he confronted the officer.
The 25-year-old from Weymouth was wanted on two charges of assault and battery, one of larceny and one of witness intimidation out of Quincy District Court. He told the plainclothes MBTA officer of his charges, adding that he was a wanted man and that he would probably end up in jail soon.
The officer later placed Mavrides in custody and transported him to the transit police headquarters for the arrest booking process.
As MSN quipped, “He got his wish!”
While Mavrides may not be the brightest felon, Florida man Mathew Oliver probably has him beat. In July, Oliver qualified himself for a spot on “World’s Dumbest Criminals” after commenting on his own “wanted” photo on Pasco County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
Oliver attempted to submit an alibi and called the charges against him slander, though he was arrested two days later.
Pasco County Police said that though the office had success in finding criminals through its Facebook page, Oliver was the first criminal to respond directly to his own picture.
