SACRAMENTO — Ok, we’ve seen our fair share of dumbass crooks, but this one may take the cake. Cops in California says two armed robbery suspects actually live streamed their alleged crime on Periscope.

For an hour, Damon Batson and Carlos Gonzalez detailed their plan — live — for the world to see.

“We riding over there right now,” said Batson. “His girl supposedly got a dude in the crib so we gonna ride over there see what we can do.”


Cops heard about the broadcast, reviewed the tape, and say they were able to catch Batson and Gonzalez red-handed. And that’s why they share the title of Dumbass of the Day.
