Another upstanding failure of Middlesex County who is not worth 2cents. This guy definitely loves jail food and maybe they should ship him back from where he comes from. It was only a matter of time before they were able to put him behind bars.Jail is too good for this loser. He turned himself in... WOW... He knew he was not the sharpest knife in the draw..so he decided to fork it up. A little late....
