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'm working the register at Dunkin' Donuts. I'm pretty sure this guy just said "Give me the money, I have a gun." But he may have said, "Give me a honey bun." Now what?

Answer:  Your call. When that happened in Massachusetts recently, police charged the mumbler with attempted armed robbery. (Consumerist, Dunkin' Donuts Robber Says He Was Just Asking For A Honey Bun

2) Question: I'm a cab driver. This lady is about to stiff me on the tip for a $33 cab ride to the airport! How long can I keep her locked in the backseat of my cab until she reconsiders this rudeness? 


Answer: Unlocking the passenger's door is not optional, sir. (AP, Cabbie Arrested for Extorting $3.30 Tip)

3) Question: A judge just banned me for life from ever stepping foot in the Empire State Building again. Is that even legal?

Answer: It is certainly unusual. Were you recently caught trying try to parachute off of the Empire State Building's 86th-floor observation deck, by any chance? Judges can get prickly over that. (AP, Court bars stunt jumper from Empire State Building)
