Even though I could easily imagine David Letterman having a field day with this story, it’s really not funny. Fortunately, the baby is going to be okay, but the lunacy that put her life in danger could be chalked up to one of the many unintended consequences of strip clubs. Just saying.
After crashing through the gates of a charter school in Pembroke Pines early this morning, Emilio Espinoza-Rojas decided a police cruiser was fair game.
