Let’s hear it for another dumb criminal.
The Oregon police released a video yesterday of a man claiming to have been severely beaten in the face by officers.
Aleksander Robin Tomaszewski, 33, was arrested last month and was being held on charges of stalking and first-degree sexual abuse. It was during his interview with police that the California man claimed deputies physically abused him by punching him repeatedly in the face.
Sporting several bruises and a set of black eyes, Tomaszewski insisted on pressing charges of the officers who assaulted him, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
What Tomaszewski did not realize is that the Lane County Jail has a CCTV system so any accusations of officer wrongdoing can easily be looked into and viewed. Bad day for Tomaszewski!
The video shows that within four minutes Tomaszewski bashed himself in the face 45 times with enough force to do sufficient damage, noted the Register-Guard.
What Tomaszewski accomplished was to be fined $100 and 20 days in jail for filing a false report. Added to this sentence is an attempt at coercion charge which landed him an additional 20 days in jail, 36 months of probation and a $500 fine.
Watch one of America’s dumbest criminals knock himself around:
