Jackass creationist, theme-park owner and professional lunatic Kent Hovind was arrested on 58 federal charges.
Hovind, a.k.a. Dr. Dino, is best known for claiming to have obtained a level of education that puts him on par with professional scientists. He is also no stranger to the inside of a courtroom:
In April, Circuit Judge Michael Allen ordered the buildings at Dinosaur Adventure Land closed because Hovind failed to obtain a building permit during the 2002 construction. The outdoor theme park was allowed to stay open.
That's right, our good Christian friend apparently doesn't care about the importance of building codes at a theme park. I guess if kids die in your park because a roof caves on them, they go to heaven faster.
What's he on trial for this time?
In the indictment unsealed Thursday, a grand jury alleges that Kent Hovind failed to pay $473,818 in federal income, Social Security and Medicare taxes on employees at his Creation Science Evangelism/Ministry between March 31, 2001, and Jan. 31, 2004.
How does he think he can get away with this behavior?
Kent Hovind, who often calls himself "Dr. Dino," has been sparring with the IRS for at least 17 years on his claims that he is employed by God, receives no income, has no expenses and owns no property.
So the money is god's, the property is god's, the expenses are god's. I guess that means the responsibility for Kent's actions is also god's. Yeah, that will fly in a court of law.
Way to go, Kent. You deserve whatever you get.
