Countersuit

TAKEN TO THE CLEANERS NEWS: Roy L. Pearson Jr. wanted to dress sharply for his new job as an administrative law judge in Washington, D.C.

Fortunately, he lost. Let’s hope he loses his shirt in a countersuit.

DRUGS & KIDS NEWS: Investigators in Gulfport, Florida arrested a 14-year-old boy who apparently dialed a really, really wrong number.

BOVINE HEIST NEWS: Robert Kent Summersett and Carl Ray Watford Jr., both prison officials in Columbia, South Carolina, have been charged with larceny of livestock, according to warrants issued by the State Law Enforcement Division. The officers took a cow valued at less then $1,000 from a prison farm at the Wateree Correctional Institution in Sumter County. Got milk?

In April, a leaping sturgeon severely injured a 50-year-old woman. Officials are posting signs warning people about the leaping sturgeon and cautioning boaters against teasing the large, ill-tempered fish.

BUTT ON THE OTHER HAND NEWS: Police blame a woman named Butts for stealing toilet paper from a central Iowa courthouse, a charge that could put her in prison. No buts about it.
