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

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
