Lessons From Criminal Blunders: Don't Steal a Car with OnStar

Earlier today, we warned folks about the dangers of calling 911 from the freeway with a fabricated story of being in danger when the real motive is to get a ride to Miami.

Also, beating up an 80-year-old woman is going to earn you some beatdowns from principled members of the cellblock.
