CLEVELAND, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- A Cleveland man complied with a judge's order by holding an "idiot" sign at the side of a road to apologize for threatening police.

Richard Dameron, 58, held a sign Monday outside the Second District police station in Cleveland apologizing for making 911 calls threatening police officers, WKYC-TV, Cleveland, reported Tuesday.

"I was being an idiot and it will never happen again," the sign reads.

Dameron was ordered to hold the sign by Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr after he failed to show up for a court appearance on the charge of making threatening 911 calls.

Dameron told the judge he missed his court appearance because he didn't have a ride.
