But let us move on to the stories that might of been overlooked this week.
|Public Service Announcement..It's time to dig out your ugly Christmas sweater.|
On the subject of "whose naughty or nice", there seems to be a few people (other than Crabby Pants) that are currently on the naughty list.
Love Thy Neighbor or Don't
Sarah Henderson was ordered by police to take down her Christmas lights.
Why, you ask?
Police in Denham Springs, Louisiana, ordered Sarah to remove her lights or face a $400.00 fine. Sarah put up the lights to send a message to a neighbor that she has been having an ongoing dispute with. In an interview with the local paper, Sarah said, "This is how I express myself." She went on to say. "I've always been a little different." (we might of guessed that)
Sarah has agreed to remove the lights. Of course, the story doesn't end there. The local chapter of the ACLU of Louisiana has picked up Sarah's cause. They have communicated with the police department saying that the "finger" is protected under the First Amendment.
Sarah is now considering of replacing the finger with a swastika. That is sure to win rave reviews in the neighborhood.
Doesn't Sarah sound like a lovely neighbor?
A Realtor's Work is Never Done
Andre Dismuke, a 36 year old Denver man, was arrested and charged Saturday for allegedly shipping 12 pounds of marijuana to his real estate agent's office in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
According to WBOC, Dismuke and his wife planned on staying in a Rehoboth rental for six weeks and shipped their weed ahead. (you know that TSA agents are a real buzz kill about weed going through security)
The problem arose when the packages of marijuana arrived in Delaware, an employee of the real estate office opened one of the packages. Dismuke faces charges of trafficking, possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released on a $10,500 bond. His marijuana had a street value of $18,000.
For all the years, I have been a Realtor, I have never had any of my clients entrust their weed to me. I am not exactly sure if this is indicative of their overall lack of confidence in me or just they are being a bit cagier with their illegal drugs. (illegal in Kansas...that is) Which leads me to the question, why didn't the Dismukes just stay home. Why wouldn't "stay-cation" in Denver where they could have their pot legally?
We Would of Never Recognized Him
A California man dressed in a Spiderman costume is facing an attempted robbery charge after trying to steal a woman's purse.
Daniel James Bradley was caught Saturday afternoon by Merced police after approaching a 24 year old victim and demanding her purse. Fearing he had a gun she ran and Daniel was subsequently apprehended.
Officials recovered a metal pipe he had been holding. When asked about his superhero costume, he explained it was part of his disguise.
A rather uneventful purse snatching, for sure. But you have to admit that his DISGUISE was less than perfect. Doesn't seem to bother him. This has to take the prize for the happiest mug shot ever.
|even in his ill-fitting costume, he is one happy Superhero.|
One Nasty Bridge
If there was a naughty list for overpasses, this one would be on it.
