Morning Constitutional

Only a few hours into the new year, and I already feel smarter than even after reading this story:

Oklahoma defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger will miss the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl after being sent home from Arizona following an arrest for shoplifting.

Granger, a starter, was arrested Saturday in Tempe after he tried to steal a jacket from the Burlington Coat Factory inside Arizona Mills Mall, Tempe police reported.

"Mr. Granger removed an anti-theft device from a jacket and then concealed the jacket in a bag. He exited the store walking past the cash registers without paying for the jacket," Mike Horn, a spokesman for the Tempe Police Department, said in a statement.

Wow, sent to a bowl game and you shoplift a $60 coat while at the bowl? Something tells me this isn't this guy's first run-in with the law.

Once a thug, always a thug. Life's hard - it's a lot harder when you're stupid.

(Morning Constitutional is an ongoing series of stupid people I read about in the morning, helping me feel smarter by comparison.)
