Man who threatened police wears court-ordered 'idiot' sign

People passing Cleveland's Second District police station this week may notice a man wearing a sign.

The sign says he is an idiot for making 911 calls threatening police officers. Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr ordered Richard Dameron, 58, to wear the sign apologising to former “super cop” Jim Simone.

Police said he threatened to kill Officer Simone and other officers back in February. During his career, Simone was shot twice, including once in the head.

The sign reads, in part: "I apologise for being an idiot and it will never happen again." Dameron will have to wear the sign for three hours a day for the rest of the week.
