Dumbest Criminals of All Time
 
 
St. Petersburg, Fla., police now say Dwayne Davis, Jr. is the man shown on store surveillance video grabbing a man out of his car and pistol whipping him in June 2010.

But rather than being detained by crackerjack investigative work by police, Davis accidentally turned himself in. He allegedly called police to ask why he was on a TV news station in a surveillance video featuring unsolved criminal cases.

The station was running a story on crimes police were trying to solve in the area, and Davis reportedly phoned to find out why his picture was part of the story.
