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

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
