Police: Alabama man arrested in women's attire Navy deserter

BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) A 21-year-old man described by police as a two-time U.S. Navy deserter didn't go unnoticed when he was arrested at a traffic stop in Bay Minette. Police said he was wearing women's clothing and makeup.

"A person in a town like Bay Minette that goes around dressed like a woman, stands out pretty good," Police Chief Michael Rowland said. [...]

Because apparently in a town like Bay Minette, female persons don't dress like women any more than the men do. Or something.

Police stopped Javaee Morrissette Robinson for driving with an expired tag Tuesday and learned he was wanted by the Navy for desertion, Rowland said.

Police don't believe Robinson was attempting to disguise himself. Rowland said Robinson has lived in Bay Minette for a while and has a history of cross-dressing.

"We just believe that is part of his particular lifestyle," Rowland said. [...]

And let's face it--navy blue is VERY slimming.

There's probably also some kind of joke in here about "rum, sodomy, and the lash," but I'm not sure it should be made.

I wonder what the guy made on his Armed Forces aptitude test. All he needed to do to get out of the Navy was declare himself to be gay even if all he wished to do was wear female sailor uniforms.

Seems that a lot of people get tripped up by expired tags.
