Woman shows up drunk for DUI hearing

Well, this was certainly one way to make sure you’re found guilty.  At the very least…it sure didn’t help out any future defense.

47 year old Helen Chancellor was arrested back in May for DUI…and was to be arraigned at a hearing late last week.  When she showed up for the 9:00am…that’s right, I said NINE AM…hearing, she was found to be “highly intoxicated“.

Chancellor was arrested again, this time for being intoxicated in public, and taken to the police station until she sobered up.  Her arraignment was rescheduled for November.

Please…someone keep this lady away from the bottle before the next court date.

Army dad not allowed in school dressed in fatigues, because it may be “offensive”

This is one of the most ridiculous stories I’ve ever read.

An Army Lieutenant Colonel in Michigan wasn’t allowed into his daughter’s high school because the uniform he was wearing “may offend other students”

Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker, a 24 year veteran of the US Army,was turned away from Rochester Adams High School when he went to discuss his daughter’s class schedule. He was told he would have to go home and change his clothes before he was allowed in the building.

Rochester superintendent Robert Shaner, who is also a veteran, has apologized to the family. He said, “The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school.The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately.”

The Baker family does have a meeting scheduled with the principal of Adams high school in the near future.

Disgusting.

Should this kid be allowed to use this as his senior picture?!

A high school senior from Schenectady, New York had a master plan for his senior portrait — to include his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth. Do you think he should be allowed to keep this photo?

I say YES! YES! YES! What a fantastic picture! So far the school district says no. Read more about it here!
