We've seen these stories before, where judges order creative punishment to law-breakers.

So was the case in Cleveland, Ohio for Judge Pinkey Carr who came down on one Richard Dameron. The 58-year-old was arrested back in February after he repeatedly called 911 and threatened to kill a police officer named Jim Simone.

This is where the creative sentencing came in. The judge ordered Dameron to wear a sign in public basically calling himself an idiot.

Every day this week the man has been standing in front of the police station with the sign.

In case you need deciphering from the above picture, the sign reads: "I apologize to Officer Simone and all police officers for being an idiot, calling and threatening to kill you. I'm sorry and it will never happen again."
