Open Post: Hosted By The Guy Who Tried To Pay His Bail With Counterfeit Bills

July 1, 2021 / Posted by:

No, it wasn’t Kodak Black. Today in “You Really Tried That, Huh?” a man from Maine tried paying his bail with counterfeit cash. Michael Deschesne was initially arrested in the wee hours of Sunday morning. Police were out on a call about a theft from a motor vehicle and found Michael walking home after “an argument with a female friend.” Even though Michael had nothing to do with the car crime, there was an outstanding warrant on him for an unrelated theft, so off to jail he went! His bail stood at $200. Michael told the commissioner that he had the money, but when he went to pay, he presented the bail commissioner with two phony $100 bills. No word on if they were “Ush-Bucks”.

Obviously, Michael was denied bail and sent right back to jail, now with an extra bonus charge of forgery. Later that day he was able to post his bail with authentic cash from the U.S. of A. His court date is set for August.

Here’s Michael’s mugshot. I’m not sure if it was taken before or after the counterfeit attempt, so those could be the eyes of a man crafting a wild scheme or the eyes of a man who’s thinking, “Oh boy, ya really did it this time, Mikey!”:

The most shocking part about this story is that it happened in Maine and not Florida. It was my understanding that Maine was full of academic writer-types who stare out onto the ocean and think deep, dark thoughts. Or maybe I’m just thinking of Stephen King. It’s high time I open my Canadian mind to the obvious reality that Florida-types are all across America, from sea to shining sea!
