And now . . . this - Mar. 17/14

Who are you, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo

This article is actually a couple of months old, but I came across it and thought it was too good to pass up:

An alleged drunken driver arrested while hiding 30 feet up a tree Friday on I-290 “rambled on about being an owl” when confronted, police wrote in court documents.

Troy A. Prockett, 37, of Hudson, was arraigned Monday on a slew of charges – including third-offense drunken driving – after town firefighters had to use a bucket truck to bring a cop 30 feet into a tree to arrest him.

Seems like a waste of effort, when all they had to do was trap him using dea mice as bait.

The suspect was later allowed to stay in the tree, after Al Gore pointed out that he was an exceedingly rare sotted owl.

This is why it's called "dope"

A medical marijuana dispensary guard shot himself in the foot for unknown reasons Friday night, according to police.

Just after 9 p.m. officers went to the 3300 block of East Highland Avenue to investigate the shooting.

"On our arrival, we found that the security guard for the business, for some reason, had his weapon out, discharged his firearm, striking himself in the foot one time," said Lt. Travis Walker.

Apparently the San Bernardino police are unaware that a gunshot wound to the foot is a painful "medical condition." Methinks the dispensary guard is now also a client.
