Dommanic Ingerson, a former player at the University of Michigan, tried to escape police recently by jumping into Oakland’s Lake Merritt. That would have been a brilliant idea if the authorities weren’t waiting for him on the other side some 35 minutes later. When he jumped in he had black shorts on, but when he came out he was fully nude.

Why were the police chasing him? He reportedly robbed two women downtown and if jumping in a lake to swim away from the cops makes you guilty, then he’s guilty.
