” A naked violinist was jailed in Portland on Saturday after witnesses reported the man setting up in front of a downtown Portland federal courthouse with his violin, bow, and nothing else. The exposed violinist was arrested by police for indecent exposure, yet he refused to budge his bare butt off of the courthouse steps. Police were forced to pick the man up and carry him over to a squad car, reports The Associated Press on May 24.
According to police records, the man gave his name as 25-year-old Matthew T. Mglej. When police arrived, they warned the man and told him to either dress himself or go home, but Mglej just kept on playing. The chin music conversation didn’t last too long; police hauled the naked fiddler off.”
Ohio Student Expelled, Arrested, Spent 13 Days In Jail . . . After A Small Pocketknife Is Found In His Locked Car Trunk By School Officials
” Jordan Wiser, a student at Ashtabula County Technical School in Jefferson, Ohio is rightfully confused after being arrested for bringing a weapon into school. The “weapon” was a pocket knife that he had in his EMT medical vest . . . that was locked into the truck of his car. That’s right, in the latest example of the insane application of zero tolerance rules, the school officials called police after searching the trunk of a locked car to find a pocket knife used by a senior in his work as a EMT. He was then fed into a legal system that refused to show discretion in his prosecution. Notably, prosecutor Harold Specht ran for office based on a pledge that he would maintain a “hardline, zero tolerance policy” as a prosecutor. It was the perfect storm for Wiser: zero tolerance administrators handing a student over to a zero tolerance prosecutor. But it gets worse . . .”
