US man ordered to wear idiot sign as punishment

A 58-year-old Ohio man who threatened police during 911 calls has been ordered to stand outside a police station wearing a sign that says he is an idiot.

Speaking as he began his punishment, Richard Dameron said he was under the influence of alcohol when the offence took place and that he took full responsibility for his actions.
