Scavenger Hunt Dismay

This is almost as funny as the cops in the police helicopter landing beside a donut shop incident that happened a few years back:

A man on a scavenger hunt entered a police station hoping to get a photo of an officer eating a doughnut.

What he got instead was thrown in jail.

Fruitport Township police officers Bryan Rypstra and Jon Durell heard a knock at the station's back door Saturday evening and found a man wearing a long wig and a Kiss T-shirt and a woman in a frilly pink dress.

The pair said they were on a scavenger hunt with another woman who had gone to a nearby store to buy a doughnut.

"Part of the scavenger hunt was to get a picture of a cop eating a doughnut. They wanted to know if one of the officers would be willing to get their picture taken," police Chief Paul Smutz told The Muskegon Chronicle.

The officers planned to play along, and they chatted with the man and woman while waiting for the doughnut run. As they spoke, the man, Louis Jasick, recognized Rypstra, a high school classmate who happened to be working overtime that evening.

Durell then remembered seeing Jasick's name on a flier that had been posted in the station only a day earlier. Jasick was wanted on two felony warrants for failing to pay $5,000 in child support.

Moral: if you have an outstanding warrant, don't go to the police station. Duh!
