Ivory Francois Jr must have had the most chapped lips in the history of man.
He tried to smuggle, and I mean smuggle, a tube of lip balm in his butt when reporting for jail.
Francois, a man who owes as much as $122,000 to five different women for support of his seven children in three states, was reporting for weekend time as part of his probation sentencing. During a strip search the tube was discovered and set off a chain of events that could have sent him go to jail for three years.
Because of the probation he was already on, and previous convictions of domestic battery the act of hiding the lip balm was enough to endanger his freedom. A judge finally decided to limit the sentence to more probation and time served.
