Ohio man who threatened police wears 'idiot' sign

After serving 90 days in jail, the man will stand outside a police station wearing a sign saying 'I was an idiot'

Associated Press

CLEVELAND — A Cleveland judge who made a woman wear an "idiot" sign in public for driving around a school bus is calling for the public shaming of a man convicted of threatening police officers.

In addition to sentencing 58-year-old Richard Dameron to 90 days in jail, Cleveland Judge Pinkey Carr ordered him to stand in front of a district police station with a sign when he gets out. Media outlets report that he'll have to stand for three hours a day for a week in June with a sign apologizing to officers. The sign will also say, "I was being an idiot and it will never happen again."

Dameron is convicted of threatening officers in 911 calls.

Carr says that sometimes she has to get creative to get through to people.
