Police Find Underground Pot Farm in Arlington. Apparently DPS officers were looking for stolen cargo equipment when they discovered 100 pot plants growing under a backyard deck. Here's what should probably happen: because weed is legal in most states and really shouldn't be illegal here either, the two people arrested should possibly get their plants back and talk to the police about this stolen cargo stuff. Also, someone should possibly give them jobs, because this set up sounds pretty ingenious. Here's what probably will happen: felony charges and prison. The Latest on Ethan Couch. His probation hearing was delayed, and his lawyers say he may have been "forced" to go to Mexico. No word whether he was also forced to dye his facial hair or go to that strip club with the sign "Boobies and Booties Galore!" Mother Snaps Photo of Sleeping Day Care Worker. The mother is described here as "outraged." The day care worker in the photo, who was the only adult in charge of a half dozen or so kids, is described as "asleep, curled up on a table." Seems like accurate reporting. Investigation Into Yu Darvish After Brother's Arrest. Yu's brother, Sho Darvish, was arrested in October, charged with running an illegal gambling ring in Osaka, Japan. There's no evidence Yu had anything to do with it, but the league is investigating just to be safe. My friend John Blake, Texas Rangers' spokesman, says this is "standard operating procedure."

Police Find Underground Pot Farm in Arlington. Apparently DPS officers were looking for stolen cargo equipment when they discovered 100 pot plants growing under a backyard deck. Here’s what should probably happen: because weed is legal in most states and really shouldn’t be illegal here either, the two people arrested should possibly get their plants back and talk to the police about this stolen cargo stuff. Also, someone should possibly give them jobs, because this set up sounds pretty ingenious. Here’s what probably will happen: felony charges and prison.

The Latest on Ethan Couch. His probation hearing was delayed, and his lawyers say he may have been “forced” to go to Mexico. No word whether he was also forced to dye his facial hair or go to that strip club with the sign “Boobies and Booties Galore!”

Mother Snaps Photo of Sleeping Day Care Worker. The mother is described here as “outraged.” The day care worker in the photo, who was the only adult in charge of a half dozen or so kids, is described as “asleep, curled up on a table.” Seems like accurate reporting.

Investigation Into Yu Darvish After Brother’s Arrest. Yu’s brother, Sho Darvish, was arrested in October, charged with running an illegal gambling ring in Osaka, Japan. There’s no evidence Yu had anything to do with it, but the league is investigating just to be safe. My friend John Blake, Texas Rangers’ spokesman, says this is “standard operating procedure.”
