The sunshine state has become notorious for its odd assortment of oddly creative criminals like the man charged with assault with a deadly weapon when he threw an alligator through a Wendy's drive thru window, or the Florida man who broke into jail because he wanted to hang out with his friends who had been arrested.
How then does a law enforcement officer begin to deal with such a mess of oddballs? How about a weekly game show called Wheel of Fugitive.
Florida Sheriff Wayne Ivey posts a new video of his weekly game show featuring Florida fugitives at large whose mug shots are taped to a spinning wheel. The videos have a pretty decently animated opening intro with gameshow music and an audience yelling, "Wheel of Fugitive!."
Ivey makes a couple of jokes, spins the wheel, and when it stops, he gives all the identifying details of the fugitive of the week and the nature of the crimes committed. He then invites the fugitive to give themselves up saying,
"Go out there, turn yourself in, and get this chapter of your life behind you."
The videos end with contact info for citizens who may have seen the featured fugitive.
Not bad, not bad. I feel like it's missing something though.
I'm just spitballing here, but maybe if they added a live studio audience, some '80s music, a little dancing, and some crazy muscle-bound stalkers to fight the fugitives, I think we'd really have something.
