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 a contestant in the World Scrabble Championships in Warsaw. I just defeated an opponent in one of my matches, but he has now demanded that I be taken to the toilet and strip-searched to prove I have not hidden a 'G' tile that mysteriously went missing during our game. Can he do that?

Answer: Your opponent can request that, but it is up to the judges whether to order the strip search. (The IndependentG for 'guilty'? Lost letter spells trouble at world Scrabble contest) (via Deadspin)

2) Question: I am ashamed to say that I participated in the Canadian riots that followed the Boston Bruins sweep of the Vancouver Canucks in the Stanley Cup. Should I turn myself in to police? 

Answer: That is your call, but keep in mind that if you do turn yourself in and present your official arrest form to the Eccotique spa, Eccotique will provide you with a $50 "Calm Down & De-Stress" gift certificate to help you calm down and relax. (Consumerist, Spa Offers Gift Certificate To Stanley Cup Rioters Who Turn Themselves In To Police)

3) Question: I tried to text a customer of mine to see if he wanted to buy some illegal drugs, but accidentally texted a cop! Now the cop has come to the meeting place we set up and things are looking bad for me. Should I just delete all the texts real quick and deny I ever texted the cop?

Answer: That will work briefly ... until the cop calls the phone number that the texts to him came from, and your phone rings. (Media General News Service, Authorities say woman mistakenly texted deputy to sell drugs)
