From the New York Times:

Corpse Wheeled to Check-Cashing Store Leads to 2 Arrests

 Two men were arrested on Tuesday after pushing a corpse, seated in an office chair, along the sidewalk to a check-cashing store to cash the dead man’s Social Security check.

Clearly movies are educational after all.  If these guys had only been fortunate enough to see Weekend at Bernie’s, or it’s sequel (which is currently earning 3.6/10 stars on IMDB) they could’ve avoided possible fraud charges.

My favorite part of the article is the detailed description of how the corpse was dressed:
The late Mr. Cintron was dressed in a faded black T-shirt and blue-and-white sneakers. His pants were pulled up part of the way, and his midsection was covered by a jacket, the police said.

I’d like to think my roommates would at least go to the effort of putting my pants all the way on.

    I saw an update that had a very comedy movie twist: the dead man’s sister was a cashier at the check-cashing store.
