Police say first he went to the Loves in Tahlequah to try to cash in his altered ticket. And when they refused, he drove all the way to the Lottery commission office in Oklahoma City, three hours away, to try to get the teller to cash it there.

This makes no sense if Shaske altered the ticket because that means he went to jail arguing the authenticity of something he knew was a fake. It makes more sense that he did find the ticket on the ground at a Wal-Mart and was upset when he found out it was worthless.

      Maybe he just wanted to be in jail. Free food, free health care, free accommodation.

      I'd hate to be in prison, although I've read those minimum security Federal facilities aren't too bad, all things considered...a chance to further your education, nobody convicted of violent crimes jailed with you and more privileges.   They don't have fences, but the guys don't try to escape because if they do and are caught, they're sent to a maximum security prison...where the other inmates (and guards/correctional officers) aren't nearly as "nice".  Texas prisons are horrible...but Oklahoma prisons are worse.

        He's not very bright and he deserves to go to jail. He got lucky the first few times when he got told no by the store clerks that they weren't going to cash his fake ticket. He should have took that as his warning that his plan wasn't going to work.

        Well, ThatScaryChick, he only went to two locations (store then lottery headquarters) to claim the ticket.  The "clerks" the article references in the first paragraph were both, or all, at the SAME store.  So, if a paranoid person, he might have felt that those clerks/friends were trying to make him lose out on legitimate monies due him ... simply to be spiteful to him.  We don't know from this article. 

        Although I do wonder why he didn't go to a second local vendor BEFORE being in such a huff/rage that he drove very far to lottery headquarters.

          What he should of done is asked Mr.Patel if it was a 20k winner. Mr.Patel would of lied and said it was only $100. Then dum dum could of bought more tickets with the $100 because Patel won't call the cops.
