I didn’t know Florida man moved cross country, but looking at this story, you’d think that was the case. Some people have all the luck, or lack of it, especially Fresno, California, resident Keith Chastain!

38-year-old Chastain was arrested, not once, not twice, but ten times in less than a month. Not to give the guy any ideas, but man, you’re this far into it; you might as well try to get into the Guinness book of world records!

Why was he released so many times and so fast? Tony Botti of the Fresno County Sheriff’s office explained how they were Federal Court Order Releases.

“Unfortunately, this is not as unique of a situation as it seems. California has watered down the laws so much over the years for property criminals and repeat offenders that they are not held accountable like they should be. Sadly, it is our community members who suffer due to these soft-on-crime policies.”
– Tony Botti, Fresno County Sheriff's Office
