Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I've had one too many rum and cokes on the Lido Deck of this cruise ship, and I now have a very strong urge to break into the ship's control room and deploy the ship's anchor. Hilarious, right?! Go for it?

Answer: You may think it is a joke now, but you can face up to 20 years in prison for dropping that anchor. Go sleep it off. (WSJ Law Blog, Anchor's Away! An Act of 'Felony Stupidity'?)

2) Question: Over and over I have tried to tell the auto dealership that the van they sold me is a lemon, but nobody will listen to me. What if I just drive to the dealership and start crashing the van into a half-dozen or so of the other cars on the lot? Would that get my point across?

Answer: Yes, but you will likely face charges for "criminal mischief." Maybe try a strongly worded letter instead? (CBS/The Associated Press, Car buyer irate over "lemon" smashes dealership)

3) Question: Dilemma: We are at home high on meth but there is an intruder in our house! Should we call 911?

Answer: Is there anyone not high on meth there who can confirm that there is a real intruder in your home? Because you may just be hallucinating and calling the police on yourself. (CBS/The Associated Press, "They were so high they called 911 on themselves")
