Who needs truth serum when you have a 2 year old? - St. Peters­burg police said offi­cers went to the home of Valdet Gjeloshi, who was wanted for vio­lat­ing his pro­ba­tion, Sat­ur­day after­noon and the mother of his child, Megan Mer­schen, told them he wasn’t home. How­ever, his 2-year-old child blurted out that he was in the attic. Gjeloshi was arrested and charged with vio­la­tion of pro­ba­tion and resist­ing an offi­cer with­out violence.

A dopey 911 call — Earl Williamson dialed 911 after hear­ing sus­pi­cious noises out­side, and got a suit­ably quick response from the boys in blue — which turned out to be a mixed bless­ing. The intruder was, in fact, scared away, but deputies found more than two dozen mar­i­juana plants grow­ing in the garage, and nearly a pound of weed ready to sell. Williamson is slated to answer drug charges at the end of next month.

Rocks in his head -  A Florida man made a crack-pot cloth­ing choice when appear­ing in court on drug charges — by don­ning a jacket adorned with a “how to cook crack” design.  The man, whose name was not released, was wear­ing a coat that fea­tured pic­tures of a white pile, a yel­low car­ton of bak­ing soda, a pot over a fire and an end prod­uct of a rock, com­plete with arrows and plus signs.His attor­ney, who wasn’t crack­ing up at the dis­play, said it was “prob­a­bly not the smartest idea for a defendant.”
