This Is Embarrassing: Alleged Burglar Arrested Wearing Elmo T-Shirt

Meet Michael Bass.

The Illinois man, 24, was arrested yesterday for his alleged role in a series of burglaries over the past couple of months.

As seen above, when Bass was collared Wednesday he was wearing a t-shirt bearing the image of Elmo, the lovable Sesame Street character with the infectious giggle.

Luckily for Bass, he had to change out of the shirt when he was booked into the Madison County jail, where he is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond.

[On a related note, a perp recently featured in these pages showed a fondness for Kermit the Frog.]

Something tells me he's not going to enjoy his fellow inmates interpretation of "tickle me Elmo"
