REDDING,Calif. -- A Shasta County inmate's picture has gone viral, not because of the crime he's accused of, but because of the tattoo across his forehead. Investigators say 21 year old Patrick Brooks tried cashing a check from Cottonwood Bible Baptist Church at a check- cashing store on Bechelli Lane Monday. His mugshot shows the prominent tattoo, which features a four-letter word starting with the letter "f."But store manager, Glenn Bassett got suspicious when he saw Brooks’ forehead which had an obscenity tattooed on it.
There’s certain things you just have to give up when you tattoo FUCK YOU on you forehead, and felony bank fraud is one of them. You could have walked in there with your sweet old grandma and her purse of change looking to open yourself a new college fund and these people would have assumed you were up to no good. Fact is you’ve left very few things for yourself to do. Hoodlum, hoodrat, maybe pimp, that’s really about it…you can’t even be a drug mule, because really, is anyone going to trust the guy with obscenities plastered on his face to make it through airport security with a balloon of coke up their ass? For sure not my friend, for sure not.
