Arizona's Dumbest Alleged Criminals of 2012 (Thus Far...)

In the past few weeks, we've ranked the dumbest moments of two of Arizona's most trusted elected officials, Governor Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

We decided to give the politicians a break this week and rank the dumbest moments of individuals who we'd actually expect to have really stupid moments -- alleged criminals.

The criminals on this list aren't ranked for the gruesomeness of their alleged crimes -- just the sheer stupidity they displayed in the process.
