Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: A car just knocked me off my bike, then kept driving and dragged my bike two kilometers down the road! What's up with that?

Answer: Perhaps the driver thought you were a tree branch? (FAIL Blog, Excuse Fail)

2) Question: An arrestee who we were taking to jail in handcuffs jumped out of the squad car and ran off with his hands cuffed behind his back! We may have some trouble proving a first-degree escape charge, do you have any other ideas on what we can charge him with?

Answer: Third-degree theft of the $29 handcuffs. (Lowering the Bar, One Possibly Unforeseen Risk of Escaping While Handcuffed)

3) Question: Yes, I was growing marijuana in my yard but can the cops really arrest me for this? Don't I have some right of privacy for my own yard?!

Answer: Not when the marijuana is growing in plain view right in your front yard, sir. (Bad Lawyer, When Cultivating Marijuana, Concealment Is Suggested)
