Man Buries BMW?

Ohio resident Bill Mueller decided to bury his 1997 BMW when the engine went *poof*. Why? Well, insurance, stupid!

BUSTED! Yeah, the fuzz found out. Obviously, he didn't get away with it...

"Mueller, 35, was sentenced to one year in prison for committing insurance fraud, tampering with evidence, falsification and receiving stolen property. Adding insult to injury, he also had to pay restitution to his insurance company and $15,500 to the state--- its fee for digging up his BMW."

Ouch. (Management note - Does it really cost $15,500 to dig up a car? Oh yeah, it was the GOVERNMENT doing it. Duh...)

Moral of the story - Do NOT try to "deep six your straight six."

A very funny and well-conveyed story, DCS.

Was he going to put a discreet tombstone on the car grave?

What would it cost the govt. to pick up a pebble off the sidewalk?

Pebble off of the sidewalk is $5.15.
