Man Busted Stealing Gas From Cops After Posting Picture of Himself Giving Middle Finger

"We was just standing there and thought it would be funny..."

File this under "not smart."

A Kentucky man was busted for stealing gas from a patrol car after he posted a picture of the act on Facebook, which also included him giving the middle finger.

"We was just standing there and thought it would be funny to take a picture and then post it on Facebook," 20-year-old Michael Baker told WYMT-TV.

"Yeah, we're sorry, but it was just a joke. I mean if we was going to steal gas, we wouldn't put it nationwide on Facebook. We don't steal anyway, but we're sorry," his girlfriend, Joann Sandelin, added.

But the more they talked, the more honest they became.

"I got a little bit of gas. I ain't gonna lie but not much. I couldn't get much. I tried but there wasn't much in it," said Baker:

"If they're going to do it to a police car, they're going to do it to just about anybody," local Police Chief Allen Bormes told the news station.

Baker spend a night in jail and has been charged with theft. The station plans on getting lockable gas caps now.
