If you chose to carry child porn along with you on your cell phone for that much-needed fix, you might think twice about leaving that same phone behind at a bar as collateral for an unpaid tab. Not this guy. Now he faces up to 175 years in prison. Epic fail beyond comprehension.

Aaron R. Klein, 24, of Brookfield, Wis., had a $57.75 tab at the Saloon on Calhoun, but told the bartender he couldn't pay. He left his cell phone as collateral and said he would be back the next day to close out the tab.

The bartender was looking through the phone for the man's phone number, but instead found seven pictures of child porn. Yikes.

Police came to the bar and waited for the man to return for his phone. He did. Oh, and he also had some OxyContin pills and a straw, so he was also arrested for possession of narcotic drugs.

Police searched his home computer and found 300 to 400 images, which the man admitted to downloading.

Lesson: Don't leave your criminal evidence in the hands of anyone else. Or how about just not being a child porn fan?
