Forget cowboys, mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be criminals.

A 32-year-old man in Carroll County, Georgia – who has either the best name ever or the worst – was booked into jail on Monday, May 9, and charged with possession of meth, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and entering an automobile with the intent to commit theft.

That man’s best/worst name ever? Willie Nelson Waylon Jennings Scarborough.

According to the Times-Georgian (via Saving Country Music), WNWJ allegedly broke into a car, stole a pistol, and then had his getaway car, a Chrysler PT Cruiser (best getaway vehicle ever), run out of gas in the middle of a road. Police responded to citizen reports to assist the stranded motorist, but got suspicious and ended up searching his car.

“Our deputies said he indicated that he had ran out of gas. As the officers were speaking with him, they noticed a plastic bag in the vehicle that led them to conduct a further search,” Capt. Jeff Richards of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office told the Times-Georgian..

The search allegedly turned up not only meth but also the stolen pistol.

“We think he may have broke into a few other vehicles, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet,” Capt. Jeff Richards said. “We’re still investigating the case, so there could be more charges added.”

On top of the car break-ins, Scarborough is also accused of breaking into a shed and stealing a weedeater.

Because, why not?
