Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: I got into an argument with my boyfriend and told him to go home. When I woke up I found him in my room shaving off my hair with electric clippers. Unacceptable! This has to be some crime, right?
Answer: He could face charges of domestic battery for that unauthorized haircut. (Naples Daily News, Buzzing mad: Immokalee man charged with shaving sleeping girlfriend's head)
2) Question: There is a beehive in a tree on my property in a suburban neighborhood, and a bee just stung one of my buddies. Unacceptable! Can I "retaliate" against that evil bee's hivemates by pouring gasoline on the tree and exploding it?
Answer: Firefighters say the correct way to address this situation is to call a beekeeper, not to blow up the tree with gasoline and fire. (The Bellingham Herald, Lynden man causes explosion after igniting gasoline-soaked beehive)
3) Question: I am a screener for the TSA at the airport. Is that seven snakes in that guy's pocket or is he just really happy to see me?
Answer: It is seven snakes. And three tortoises. (CBS News, U.S. arrests man with snakes, tortoises in pants)
