Imag­ine you’re a huge Ala­nis Moris­sette fan and you end up in the hos­pi­tal because of Ala­nis Moris­sette. Isn’t it ironic? Don’t you think? That’s what hap­pened to a Jack­sonville, Florida, man who lis­tened to just enough of her music to drive his boyfriend crazy. 24-year-old Allen Casey was arrested for domes­tic bat­tery for smash­ing his boyfriend in the face with a plate because he was lis­ten­ing to too much Ala­nis Moris­sette. Casey is in jail await­ing bail. His boyfriend was treated for cuts and released

A Wis­con­sin state appeals court has rejected a driver’s claim that traf­fic laws vio­late his reli­gious rights by refer­ring to him as a “per­son.” Jef­frey Manke had argued that his read­ing of the Bible
defines him as a “man,” rather than a per­son, so the law doesn’t apply to him. In a short opin­ion, the court said the dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tion of “per­son” includes “man” within it.  The court said a num­ber of other chal­lenges he made were “equally unpersuasive.”

The great thing about this country’s legal sys­tem is that every­one is inno­cent until proven guilty. But that doesn’t help if you’re an idiot.  Two guys, ages 19 and 21, both of Naples, Florida, were picked up on sus­pi­cion of break­ing into a house. They denied doing any­thing wrong, but a video cam­era installed inside the patrol car taped them dis­cussing the specifics of the bur­glary and pass­ing around a joint. They now face charges of bur­glary, grand theft and mar­i­juana possession.
