Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am at a football field for my 7-year-old's first football game! After we won the game on a late touchdown, a dad from the other team ran on the field protesting the play and cursing. The officials asked him to leave but he started throwing chairs onto the field, then got into a fight with two police officers and bit them both. This was not addressed at the pre-season parents' meeting. Isn't this against the rules or something? 

Answer: Against the rules and against the law. That can get you charged with battery, battery by body waste, resisting law enforcement, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct. (FOX 59, Franklin Twp. man arrested, accused of biting two police officers)

2) Question: I am a security guard at a courthouse, and I've been given the job of holding an infant during a custody hearing concerning the infant. Now that the judge has ruled on custody, a bit of a brawl has broken out in the courtroom. Should I hand the child off to the woman next to me and help break up the brawl?

Answer: You need to be careful here, as sometimes when guards hand children off so that they can go break up courtroom brawls, the child will then get lost in the chaos. (The Associated Press, Infant goes missing after court brawl in Detroit)

3) Question: I'm a clerk at a Dallas convenience store. On one hand, I believe this man is trying to rob my store and is demanding money. On the other, he is wearing a pair of tighty-whitey underpants on his head (with the Y-flap in front) and what looks like a dress. Joke or robbery?

Answer: An underpants-on-the-head robber recently struck in your area. Err on the side of "robbery" here. (Newslite, Robber wears Y-front pants on his head
