Man Arrested For Trying to Sell Baby on Craigslist

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Turns out, the guy who called 911 last week because McDonald's messed up his order is NOT the dumbest criminal of the summer.

Nope. That dishonor falls to Paul Marquez, a 23-year old Staten Island resident who twice tried to sell his girlfriend's baby on Craigslist last month because its asthma was starting to get truly irritating.

"I have a 2-month-old baby, she loves to play and have her little fun, but there's one problem," the ad read.

"Doctors say she has asthma and if she turns a certain way she can stop breathing. She's really getting on my nerves and I don't want her."

Court documents say Marquez admitted to the act in order to "get back" at the child's mother.

Marquez was arrested on Thursday and is being held on $1,000 bail.

He has been charged with authority to place or board out children, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child. He'll go to jail for a year if convicted.
