A bumbling fugitive forgets that he is on the run, and flags down officers before being promptly arrested


After asking police for help with his car’s breakdown, a clueless driver was arrested. He had forgotten that cops were looking for him.

The man forgot to bring petrol so he was stuck in middle of the road.

After reviewing his options, he decided to ask West Midlands Police officers for assistance with his car.

After asking for help from the police, the officers quickly realized that the man they were dealing was making an allegation and also driving an untaxed car.

Officers took the driver into custody for not having his vehicle taxed. Also, they found that he was wanted on suspicion of making threats against killing.

The next line was: “Ran out of fuel, ran out of time and also… you’ve ran out of tax!”The hashtag is then followed “Whoops”.

The final line was: “One male arrested for threats to kill and vehicle seized.”With the hashtag result, and the eyes emoticon.
