This Florida man may be equal parts genius and a**hole for a move he could've gotten away with if a State Trooper hadn’t caught him. 

In an attempt to block his license plate from toll cameras with a remote-activated cover, Joshua West now faces a felony. Sadly for West, his life is not a James Bond movie and in real life, trying to get out of somewhat trivial things like paying to drive on highways actually could land you in jail.

We can't lie, though.  As wrong and illegal as it was, we can't blame the guy for trying! A for effort.
