We have a winner!!! (11/02/09)
NH man pleads guilty to serial bigamy after 153 arrests. The exhausted 49-year-old plaintiff explained that he had always been a romantic and loved women so much that he had to propose to them to see the delight on their faces. Naturally they all said 'Yes, oh yes' and then he felt obliged to marry them. Asked how he could afford so many wedding ceremonies, which were conducted in places as diverse as Finland, Australia and many of the states of the USA he replied that he had been left a considerable legacy by his father, Don Juan, which allowed him to travel. He told each of his wives that complex business affairs took him around the globe. His most recent bride snorted derisively and said, 'Business affairs? He told me he was a diamond merchant' as she glanced at the huge solitaire on her finger.

NH man arrested for the 153rd time to plead guilty after he was apprehended riding his neighbour's donkey through his wife's prized tulip beds. Mr. Rodrick Beanstalk of Pelham, NH has been in jail since his arrest late Sunday night and seems to have no interest in leaving. "My damned wife feeds those flowers more than she feeds me!" the suspect was heard bellowing as the police lead him away. "Mr. Beanstalk seems to think that the donkey also hates the tulips as her pen overlooks the flower beds and he's seen her 'looking askance' at the colourful blooms. He's stolen her a number of times to aid him in destroying the garden," the police chief reported to the press during this morning's briefing. "Princess Merriweather the donkey will not face charges for participating in the repeated vandalism. She will, however, now be fitted with a bell."

Paul Baldwin, is quite a disgrace
(And New Hampshire is such a nice place!)
He was drunk off his gourd
Now he wants an award
For punching that guy in the face

What do you think, Call Me Cate? Does he deserve a Punch in the Face award?

DUI? He was arrested so many times because they could never persecute him because the evidence kept getting misplaced and the breathalizers were malfunctioning........

Love love LOOOVE the idea of this blog/project. I'm totally in. So here's my shot at today's cue.

The man was arrested 153 times for his compulsion to steal cases of Trader Joe's bottled water. He was a bit of a germophobe, so he would take the case of water and dump every bottle into his above-ground pool; he didn't trust the water that came out of his hose. The offense being relatively minor, the man kept getting off the hook with a slap on the wrist (and of course, after reimbursing TJ's for their stolen water bottles).

I'm guessing it has something to do with public intoxication. Otherwise, he wouldn't keep commiting the same crime. Perhaps DWI? Or assault?

He kept spitting on the side walk. They needed DNA to prove it was his spit.

Twenty-two year old man arrested for the 153 times for having too long of a beard and mustache.
There is a very old, little known law on the books requiring beards and mustaches not to be more than 3 5/8 inches long. His were 4 inches.
His mother kept trying to get him to shave, she is much against facial hair of any kind, he refused to shave. She kept having him arrested.

I'm pretty darn sure I read (not really) that it was for public drunkenness. The guy was just too drunk to remember that he got caught last time. Unfortunately, his short term memory is so fried that he keeps doing it over and over. He's a damn moron.
