Maybe duct tape can make a prison

May 24, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A man who wrapped his head in duct tape and tried to rob a liquor store was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the bizarre caper, which spawned mocking videos on YouTube. Kasey G. Kazee, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree robbery. Police said he entered an Ashland liquor store on Aug. 10 with his entire head, except for openings at his eyes and mouth, wrapped in duct tape. He threatened to harm a clerk if she didn't give him money, but another employee tackled him and held him for police.
