The worst time to commit a crime is when you're wanted for a crime.

In this week's edition of People Behaving Badly, Stanley Roberts caught up with BART police who were trying their damndest to write a ticket to this dude who "piggybacked" on a BART fare, meaning he followed a paying customer through the gates.

The guy claimed he arrived in San Francisco on the same day he attempted to skip out on his BART fare, presumably trying to play dumb. After evading his fare, he remained evasive with the cops, going back-and-forth about who he was and where he lived.

After an exhaustive search for the man's identity, the police finally found it -- on his arm.

Watch how this man who was on parole probation and had a felony warrant for his arrest tries really hard to get out of another ticket:

BART: 1; Fake Southern dude: 0

Typical Black BS, North, South, East and West. Send him to Folsom.

Stanley Robert's "news" segment is invasive and sensationalist. All this guy does is get into people's faces. Put more effort into your articles instead of recycling bad TV! Also, the guy walking with his wheelchair has an obvious limp. Calling out people and putting them on internet and TV is rude!

I note that Ron Burgandy didn't bother to tell us what the felony warrant was for, and why despite that warrant and the fact that the guy was on parole (for what, we don't know), he was nevertheless allowed to go on his way. If the cops refused to give Burgandy this information, he should say so. If he didn't even ask, he should move to the sports desk.

@mitchell39 It was for a 5000 dollar traffic ticket! Keep it Classy Mitchell39 Oh and he was on Probation not Parole .......

@SFRonBurgandy OK. Probation. If the answer was felony traffic, then that fact clearly belonged in the story, not in the SFWeekly's comments section.

My other question, about why this half-baked "Cops" outtake was  a story in the first place, is self-answering.

@SFRonBurgandy You're more correct than I suspect you realize.

And what's great about it is that it's so incredibly rare and remarkable to come upon people behaving somewhat badly in a big American city. I mean, how often do you get a chance to watch the cops questioning some marginal character who tried to sneak onto the subway? That's what makes it news. The novelty.

The segment is called "People Behaving Badly" that is self answering.
