Criminals make dumb mistakes all the time. (Remember that one guy who left a trail of Cheetos from the convenience store he robbed to his front door?) These blockheaded blunders usually work out well for everyone involved except the criminal (of course). This was particularly true for an unidentified California woman who suddenly developed a very, very upset stomach after having an argument with her boyfriend. No, this was no stress-induced tummy ache. The cause of her gastrointestinal suffering turned out to be a mean-spirited "prank" played by her boyfriend, 27-year-old Shayne Carpenter, who allegedly put Visine eye drops in her drink ... and then texted a bunch of his buddies about it.
Clearly Carpenter wasn't exactly the trustworthy type to begin with, because as soon as his girlfriend started to feel ill, she knew just what to do ...
She checked his cellphone for clues. And boy, did she ever find 'em -- in such eloquently worded texts as this one:
"If she's going to be talking crap then she's going to be crapping."
Dang, this fella sure does sound like a keeper, right ladies?
Anyway, it's a good thing Carpenter was stupid enough to text his pals about his alleged attempt to poison his gal, because when she found the texts, she called the police AND the hospital, where she was treated and released. Carpenter was released, too -- from jail, after posting $25,000 bail (he was arrested and charged with domestic abuse and poisoning).
Sheesh. Check out this dastardly dude:
Hope that relationship is over!
Can you believe someone would be this stupid and mean?
