HR Strange But True!
March 17, 2003

We all know that HR is never boring. But sometimes it gets downright strange...

What happens when you make exceptions

At the Colorado casino where he worked, Leonard Crapps was exempted from having to wear the required uniform - a pocketless jumpsuit that buttoned down the front. The reason was his size: At 5-foot-6 and 280 pounds, he simply couldn't fit into it.

Instead, the casino allowed him to wear sweatpants - which in turn gave him the means to steal thousands of dollars from slot machines, according to authorities. By stuffing bills into his sweatpants, Crapps took the casino for at least $160,000, though no one's sure of the exact total, the Associated Press reports.

He already has pleaded guilty to the crime and been ordered to pay nearly $200,000. He's also on probation for 12 years.
