Man chooses arrest over returning heavy planter
A man in Massachusetts caught trying to steal a planter turned down the offer to escape arrest if he returned it, according to this report:
Enson M. Ibanez, 25, is charged with disorderly conduct, malicious destruction, and larceny, but police offered the man a reprieve: Put the planter back where you found it and we won't arrest you.
"No, it's too heavy," Ibanez told police, according to the report.
Ibanez later put both his hands in front of him insinuating he wanted the police to put handcuffs on him and arrest him, the report said.
