Richard Dameron was found him guilty
of threatening to kill a police officer after a boozed-up phone call to 9-1-1.
So he spent his Labor Day standing in front of the Cleveland District police
headquarters wearing a sign calling himself an idiot.
He said he has had enough humiliation
for one day, "I hope that Officer Simone and his
family take my apology because I was drunk. I was running off at the mouth and
I apologize from deep down. And I don't want no repercussions coming back on it
because of all this. I just want it to be over with and done."
His punishment isn't over yet. Dameron
will have to wear this sign three hours a day for the rest of the week.
