Dumb Indiana Criminal Found At Scene Of The Crime

Oh this guy is a real winner... from WSBT TV:
A man found trapped unconscious beneath a 1,000-pound tombstone in a cemetery faces charges and might have to pay for damages, police said.

Michael David Schreiber, 22, has both legs broken beneath the stone, Merrillville Officer Ray Smith said. The Merrillville man faces charges of criminal trespassing, criminal mischief and public intoxication, police said.
Wow, alcohol was involved... isn't that shocking??? I bet money that before the accident he said, "Hey Watch This!"
His condition was not immediately available Tuesday morning, a nursing supervisor at Methodist Hospitals said.

It took five officers to remove the headstone from Schreiber's body Sunday morning at Calumet Park Cemetery in the northwestern Indiana town, Smith said. The family name at the top of the headstone left its mark on the suspect.

"The letter V left an imprint on Schreiber's thigh," Smith said.

Besides facing criminal charges, Schreiber may be ordered to pay for damage to 14 headstones, Police Chief Nicholas Bravos said. Estimated damage totaled about $8,400, Bravos said.

Schreiber told police he and a companion had been drinking before going to the cemetery.

He estimated he had been trapped under the headstone for more than three hours before police arrived, Bravos said.
