Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm at the Frederick County Courthouse in Maryland. Why did they suddenly evacuate the building?!

Answer: A courthouse deputy found a stray coconut. (WUSA9, Deputy Spots Suspicious Coconut At Frederick County, Md. Courthouse; Deemed Safe)

2) Question: I recently won $2 million in the Michigan state lottery! Can I stay on food stamps? 

Answer: Michigan? Yes, that's what two other winners there did, so I guess so. (Consumerist, Michigan Woman Who Won $1 Million In Lottery Stays On Food Stamps)

3) Question: How can I be arrested for jogging naked in public? What part of "I lost a bet in a bar over a game of darts" don't you understand? 

Answer: Sorry, but "bar bet" is not an affirmative defense to this type of disorderly conduct charge. (WHBL, Naked Man Cited in Fond du Lac)
