Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My buddy and I are both over age 70. We were golfing and I was in the middle of my backswing when some punk teenage kids intentionally blew a loud air horn to startle me. Unacceptable! They ran away but one left his jacket behind and just walked back near us. Do we have a right to give him a few whacks with our metal ball retriever on his backside? Did I mention I was in the middle of my backswing?!

Answer: Sorry, but you do not have that right and might wind up getting yourselves charged with child abuse. (NWF Daily NewsTwo charged for striking teen with golf ball retrievers)

2) Question: I was charged with going 8 mph over the speed limit. What is that going to cost me? 

Answer: $9,000. (Legal Juice, Can A Speeding Ticket For 8 MPH Over The Limit Cost You $9,000?)

3) Question: I was stopped for going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone. What is that going to cost me? Did I mention that I am a County councilmember? 

Answer: That will just be a warning for you, councilmember. (WTOP NewsCouncilwoman stopped going 105 mph in a 55 mph)
