Consistency is not a virtue if you are a screwup.

Screwup #1: Drunk driving, that got his license suspended.

Screwup #2: Getting caught driving without a license.

Screwup #3: Trying to get out of it by pretending to be dead.

SALEM, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts authorities are searching for a man they say faked his death to beat charges of driving without a license. The Gloucester Times reported that 42-year-old Michael Rosen of Salem sent a man to court last week to file a certificate showing that Rosen had died the previous week. Afterward, a judge dismissed the traffic case.

But a suspicious probation officer heard from a colleague in a neighboring town that Rosen had checked in four days after he purportedly died. Additional investigation showed the certificate contained spelling errors in the place of birth, cause of death, and the cemetery. City officials confirmed the document was a fake, lacking a raised seal and printed on the wrong kind of paper.

Rosen now faces additional charges of forgery and counterfeiting.

Seems a bit extreme but at least he tried.

So he goes from a ticket to probably doing time. Great plan.

Next he should sue the police officer for suffering caused by the false report of his death that transpired after the ticket.

I'm hoping he continues his streak of digging himself deeper. Maybe a jailbreak? Trying to fake an injury?

Faking your death to get out of a ticket? Sounds reasonable.

At least L. Ron Hubbard saved himself millions of dollars in unpaid taxes by faking his own death. This guy thought he'd save himself, what, about $900?
