Former college athlete caught shoplifting, says it was item on his 'bucket list'

Most people have a number of items on their bucket lists – like attending a big game, vacationing somewhere significant, or completing some physical challenge. One man apparently had shoplifting on his bucket list.

You’re reading that right. He had stealing items from a store on his bucket list.

A former West Virginia baseball player named Tony Strasiser was arrested earlier this week for allegedly shoplifting at a Target in Florida. Strasiser is accused of attempting to steal bed sheets and Clif bars by placing the items in a bag he brought into the store and walking out the door without paying. When he later turned himself in to the cops, he told them that shoplifting was on his “bucket list.”

He also said that he suffered from a “lapse in good judgement.” Clearly.

Via the Smoking Gun:

He reportedly told a Clearwater Police Department officer that he shoplifted as a thing for his ‘bucket list.'” The theft, he added, was a “lapse of good judgment.”

Charged with theft, Strasiser was booked into the county jail yesterday afternoon on the misdemeanor count. He was released around 11 PM after posting $250 bond.

The offense is categorized as petit theft and he was later released on bond.

Let’s hope that Strasiser exercises better judgement moving forward.
