Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions
Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1) Question: My buddies and I were driving in a car and we stupidly threw a milkshake at a woman on the street. She became angry and threw her alligator purse at our car, which somehow went right through our open car window. We then learned that the purse contained $2,000 in cash. Can we get in trouble for the milkshake? How about if we keep the purse and the cash?
Answer: According to police, you could face charges of battery for striking the woman with the milkshake, and possession of stolen property or misappropriation of property for the purse. (Palo Alto Online, Woman hit with milkshake loses $2,000)
2) Question: A man was walking past my apartment door and let loose an unforgivable fart. Can I threaten him with my revolver?
Answer: No sir, that could get you charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm and making terroristic threats. (NJ.com, Police: Teaneck man pulled gun on neighbor for farting)
3) Question: The line for metal detector number one at the airport goes on forever, but people are just sailing through metal detector number two. How is this possible?
Answer: Sometimes the TSA employees at the airport forget to plug in one of the metal detectors at security. (Newsmax, Unplugged JFK Metal Detector Leads to Evacuation and Delays)
