25-year-old Cody James Romano of Wisconsin rang in the new year in style. Instead of blowing some noise makers like a total dweeb, Romano got a running start and delivered a picture-perfect belly flop onto a police car windshield shortly after midnight on Sunday. Watch Romano take flight in the video below.
What a goddamn maniac. Here’s The Smoking Gun with more information on Romano’s idiotic New Year’s Eve celebration.
After a scuffle with cops, Romano was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for treatment. He was then booked into the county jail on multiple charges, including battery to a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage to property.
Investigators say that Romano “had been drinking” prior to his ill-conceived execution of the January 1 belly flop in Menasha, a city about 35 miles south of Green Bay.
He’d been drinking!?!? I refuse to believe it. If I’m his lawyer, I’m pleading temporary insanity after becoming deeply distressed due to Mariah Carey’s trainwreck of a performance.
Here is Romano’s mugshot and a photo of the damage he did to the police car.

It’s hard to say which is in worse shape. While Romano’s actions were unbelievably stupid, at least he’ll have an easy New Year’s resolution for next year. Just refrain from treating police cars like swimming pools and he’ll be golden.
