Cub’s closer Pedro Strop had his car stolen right out of the garage of the apartment building where he’s staying. The car was found not far away after cops attempted a traffic stop, the perp took off, and crashed into a parked car. No one was hurt but no one is in custody either. The kicker – Stroup was talking about the incident with officers in the dugout, but he told them he had to go to save the game. And it worked! Hopefully they catch the bad guy soon.

Today’s Lack of Intelligence Report took place in Florida! That’s where a man was arrested for exposing himself to people in traffic while attempting to advertise a weapons class. In this case, the weapon was not concealed. Now thankfully there are no pictures of the incident, but we do have a mugshot.
