WATCH: This woman pretended to be a sign language interpreter at a police press conference

Meet Derlyn Roberts. She showed up at a press conference held by the Tampa Police Department (TPD) in Florida under the pretense that she is an interpreter of the American Sign Language (ASL) and proceeded to interpret as the Tampa Police announced the arrest of a notorious serial killer.

A deaf-mute parent who is the mother of one of the victims of the serial killer, however, was among those left completely baffled because Roberts was signing gibberish.

 

She had signed "fifty-one hours ago, zero 12 22 [indecipherable] murder three minutes in 14 weeks ago in old [indecipherable] murder four five 55,000 plea 10 arrest murder bush [indecipherable] three age 24," said Rachelle Settambrino, a professor at University of South Florida.

 

A spokesperson of the Tampa Police Department said that they regularly worked with a contractor to have sign language interpreters in similar events, and that they did not question

 

Roberts when she presented herself as the ASL interpreter sent over by the contractor they have always worked with.

We don't know about you, but we totally get why they didn't bother checking her credentials. Why would anyone pretend to be a sign language interpreter, right? It sounds like a very strange prank that will only confuse people rather than elicit laughter. And after knowing the full story about the serial killer, you'll realise that it's not funny at all.

After US media outlets published this story, it was discovered that Derlyn Roberts actually has a criminal record and "was released from state prison last year after being convicted in 2012 for organised fraud over $50,000 and fraudulent use of personal information."

This incident won't be added to her police record, though, because even though pretending to be an ASL interpreter is an ethical violation, it is not a crime according to the TPD.

Watch the full, bizarre video below:

It is every bit as cringe-worthy and baffling as this performance:

as the article mentioned, for such an important televised event, should at least check the credentials... doesnt reflect well on the Police Dept... doesnt help when not many people can verify what she signed was correct or not...
