I read about this story 6 months or so ago and meant to write about it then. Since it still makes me chuckle whenever I think about it, I’ll write about it now.
I heard about a guy who skipped parole and they were looking for him. When I saw Nathan Barrett’s description, my first thought was “Well, that won’t take long to find him.”
He is described as being black, 5’7” and 176 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He also has several distinctive tattoos, including a star and dollar sign near his left eye, a Nike symbol on his forehead, a butterfly on his neck. Tattoos on his forearms include the sun, a wing and the word Scorpion on the right and a wing, a moon and the word Barrett on his left.
Tattoos include? So, there were more? Why even try running if you are covered in various super unique tattoos, including your own freaking name? And why does anyone tattoo things on their face? You can wear long sleeves and cover your arms…but your face is much harder to keep covered all the time. Maybe I just don’t get it because I don’t have tattoos.
I was right, it didn’t take long. he was arrested 3 days later. I wonder if it was the tattoos that got him.
