My friends and I are trying to think of a term that refers to someone who is just asking to be put in jail. The closest I can think of is hooligan. Is there anything closer?
I would say the person is a delinquent. But I think a good way to describe someone who is asking to be locked up is saying they are sketchy. If you are young and sketchy you might be a punk. If you look like a bully too you might be described as a thug.
