Man Jailed After Politely Holding Door for Cop

What's that they say about no good deed? A Massachusetts man found himself under arrest after he stopped to hold the door for a police officer leaving a mall in Natick, reports the MetroWest Daily News. “The officer turned around to thank him and recognized him,” says a police spokesperson. After returning to his patrol car, the officer looked up 28-year-old Kayvon A.

He then returned to the mall and arrested Mavaddat, who was being held without bail. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
