Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

SGT Johnson was patrolling his beat one day and saw a man attempting to siphon fuel from a motor home. After a few attempts, the thief finally got something from the tube. SGT Johnson calmly went up to the house that the motor home was parked in front of and informed the owner of what had happened. He then asked if they wanted to press charges. Amid bursts of laughter, the owner declined to press charges.

Why didn't SGT Johnson arrest the thief on site, and why didn't the owner press charges?

Well, he informed the owner, which probably meant the he took him to the motor home and showed where he stole it from. HA HA HA!!! THAT IS SOOO FUNNY!!!!! HE HAD URINE AND NOT GAS!!!!

I have to admit I got the idea from elsewhere.

He knew it was the wrong port because he liked to go camping and had a similar motor home himself.

actually, the news does lie. The National Enquirer is a great example of that.

Anyhow, i read that on an email that went around about the top 50 stupidest things people have ever done.

Oh, brother!
It is funny, but as pointed out, it's been printed in other places. Other than that, it's nice to see dumb people do dumb things that have fitting punishments!

This was not a mystery teaser, but rather a situation. A mystery should contain all the clues necessary to "solve" the story. A situation leaves one to guess at the possible outcome.

That said, this was very funny!

Ughh... I hope it didn't spray everywhere. I would want to be arrested, to save the humiliation. The hint was a little bit of a spoiler but other than that it was great.
