Sometimes people don't always think things through.

A Massachusetts man was taken into police custody Thursday after police allegedly saw him skipping a $2.10 fare at a transit station in Boston's Back Bay, and subsequently discovered a warrant for his arrest. During his booking, authorities say they found nearly $7,000 in cash on his person.

"Yes that's correct, he evaded a $2.10 fare while in possession of nearly $7,000 and had a warrant for his arrest. Hmmmmmmm," the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority police wrote in a blog post on the arrest.
