A Texan in California, he certainly travels to commit his crimes.
Hopefully he shall have the book thrown at him and he shall receive the appropriate punishment.

And to think -- had he bothered to wear a helmet, he would have never been noticed...

The term you're looking for is "extradite," sport. Which I'm sure he will be in due course.

Funny, he doesn't LOOK that stupid,.....

Betcha even money the hypodermic is due to a drug problem and that is at the root of all his other mistakes. What a waste.
