This fellow has been locked in a Utah jail for more than three weeks on misdemeanors because he refuses to give his name. He was arrested after refusing to leave a Provo, Utah police parking garage where he was allegedly peeking into city vehicles. His jailers say he's very polite but just ain't talkin. From the AP:
The man faces three misdemeanor charges of interfering with an investigation, failure to provide information to a police officer and criminal trespass. He's been ordered held on $1,200 cash bond.
He had no wallet when arrested, and Harris doesn't think the man can pay his bond.
Meantime, the man sits in jail, practically silent, save for a few brief conversations with Harris and a deputy who have been trying to get him to talk. Authorities ran the man's fingerprints through a state database but came up with nothing. They planned to submit them to an FBI database Tuesday.
"The only thing that I can even elicit from him is he said that at some point in time, he would need to get out," Harris said. "That's the only thing he's given us. Whatever that means, I don't know..."
"Maybe he just wanted to escape something. Perhaps he had a blowout with his family," (Lt. Dennis) Harris said. "Maybe he just told the whole world to go to hell."
