One thing to remember about schmucks: If they do something schmucky once, there's a good chance they'll do it again. As evidence, check the story of Kathleen McGrath, who's now admitted to pilfering nearly $10,000 from a high school booster club -- a crime that came to light only after she was busted for embezzling $170,000 from the construction company where she worked.

If the folks at the Denver District Attorney's Office are right, Ostell Miles is a schmuck -- a schmuck who used to play in the National Football League.

Miles, a onetime running back for the Cincinnati Bengals, is among three people accused of responding to at least ten people whose cars had broken down not by towing their rides to a repair shop, but by stealing them. Photos, video and details below.

So we offer a tip of the uniform cap to the Denver Police Department for a Facebook post whose headline definitely caught our attention: "SUSPECT RUNS...STRAIGHT TO THE POLICE STATION."

Which brings us to the story of Andrew Blackman.

Tensions are high enough between citizens and law-enforcement agencies without anonymous online posters getting in on the act. On December 17, Google contacted the FBI's San Francisco office to report what it considered a threat: a comment advocating killing police officers by someone using the name "Vets Hunting Cops."

Andres Sanchez-Luevano. Additional photos and more below.
Animal cruelty goes beyond mere schuckiness in our book. But we're featuring Andres Sanchez-Luevano as a Schmuck of the Week anyhow due to his alleged reasons for killing a month-old kitten -- he was apparently trying to punish his girlfriend of three years -- and his initial decision to rabbit rather than face the consequences. The arrest report and more below.

Frankly, we don't know which of the people in our latest Schmuck of the Week post deserves the honor more: the guy who pointed a banana at two deputies, the law enforcers who arrested him or the prosecutor who decided to pursue charges in the case, albeit lower ones than originally envisioned. But whoever's the schmuckiest, we love this story! Get the hilarious photo-and-video-aided details below.
