WILLIMANTIC, CT - Limo drivers have probably been privy to some pretty weird scenes, from stunned tourists to jilted brides, but a Connecticut chauffeur got a first ... on his fare's 50th.

Melanie Roberts hired the limo to driver her and some friends into New York City to celebrate her big 5-0.

Once the party was over ... it was really over.

The driver says  when he gave Roberts the bill, she pulled out a gun and stole the limo's GPS unit. But. the driver already knew who she was since she had already booked the gig.

With very little police work, Roberts scored a free ride, right on down to jail.

And earned the dubious title of our Dumbass of the Day.
