6 Chill As Fuck East Carolina Students Arrested For Breaking And Entering While Wearing Hawaiian Shirts


Six students at East Carolina University (above) were arrested on felony breaking and entering charges over the weekend in an act of revenge for a female friend.

From WNCT:

The break-in occurred around 1 a.m. Saturday, when officers said six men entered the victims’ apartment through the unlocked front door and took their dog.

Officers said they eventually left without the dog when the victims went downstairs and forced the door closed on the men, who were near the doorway.

Neither the dog nor any of the victims inside the apartment were hurt.

The suspects then called one of the victims and challenged him to fight near Library Street, where police arrested the suspects, officers said.

Dylan Cole, 19; Caleb Quinn, 20; Tanner Bridges, 21; Brandon Stroud, 18; Casey Dyer, 20; and Taylor Larson, 19, have all been charged with felony breaking and entering with the intent to terrorize or injure.

How about their names? Dylan, Caleb, Tanner, Brandon, Casey, and Taylor? Sounds like the lineup the ultimate frisbee club runs out every Saturday morning down on the quad. Was this a break in or the tailgate for a jam band festival? I mean, the door was open. Kind of bullshit it’s a felony to walk through an unlocked entrance.

And in case you just completely overlooked the mugshots up top, yes, all the suspects are wearing Hawaiian shirts. Personally not my first choice when I want to inconspicuously pull off a B and E or get into a fist fight, but to each their own. I guess it’s loose enough and non-restricting so you could be capable of getting yourself out of virtually any physical jam. Plus, you’re immediately going to be seen as a less threatening individual.

No one’s expecting Tommy Bahama to throw hands. That’s just not the vibe a Hawaiian puts out. You know what? I’m talking myself more and more into the Hawaiian as the best shirt to break the law in. By the time anyone realizes any wrongdoing by your party, you SHOULD be long gone from the scene of the crime. This is obviously not the best example, as they essentially told police where to arrest them and weren’t hard to spot, but the point still stands.
