Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My neighbor's lawn is a mess. Turning brown, sprouting weeds, outrageous! Can I go water it even though he doesn't want me to?

Answer: First of all, that is trespassing, so no. And if they call the cops on you (it happens) and you get into a scrap with the police (also happens), you could wind up with two black eyes plus an arrest for battery to a law enforcement officer, assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence, depriving an officer of communication, and resisting an officer without violence. Worry about your own lawn. (, Man Watering Neighbor's Lawn Fights Cops) (via Legal Juice)

2) Question: I lost my license and it turned up as bogus  "proof" of some other girl's age in a Girls Gone Wild video. Can I have $3 million, please?

Answer: No problem. (Internet Cases, Woman mistaken for Spitzer prostitute in Girls Gone Wild internet video awarded $3 million)

3) Question: I was halfway finished getting a haircut when, to make a long story short, I got into a fight with someone in the barbershop and got arrested. Can they make me sit for my mugshot with my hair in this half-finished state?

Answer: There is precedent for this, yes. See below. (Tosh.0 Blog, If You're Going To Stab Someone, At Least Wait Until Your Haircut Is Over)
