College Student Spends 4 Days In Jail After Being Mistakenly Arrested
Jawon Johnson, 18, is a freshman at West Virginia State University. He even plays on the football team as a wide receiver.
“I never thought I would be sitting in jail, especially for something I knew for sure I didn’t do,” Johnson said.
But on Saturday night, he put on a different uniform after he says he was pulled over by a Havre de Grace police officer for making an illegal U-turn. He expected to be handed a ticket, but after an hour he was handcuffed and taken to the Harford County Detention Center on a federal warrant.
“I told them the picture wasn’t me. They continued and insisted on, in fact, it was me,” said Johnson.
Jawon, with an “o”, was accused of being another Jawan Johnson involved in a burglary case in D.C. The man wanted by the federal government spells his name with an “a”. It took police four days to realize their mistake. All the while, Johnson sat behind bars innocent.

we live in a world where the pizza arrives faster than the police
Well the pizza driver faces consequences when their job isn’t done right.

i had a fucked up dream my family or maybe the family of a movie i was watching (in my dreams lately these things are very transmutable) was about to be murdered by a reality-bending assassin named the Chef played by the dude who played the drifter in shortlived nickolodeon show 100 Good Deeds for Eddie McDowd, and i cant get it out of my head it’ll never leave
this is what the chef looked like and it was terrifying

Arthur Marx wrote several books about his father—the one, the only Groucho—starting with 1954’s Life With Groucho. But he had a bit of a practise run.
Marx put together some anecdotes and came up with a story for the February 1949 edition of Radio and Television Mirror

that’s almost too cruel
I had to do this once with Privateer II: The Darkening. It gained a bit when he said “I bet you didn’t play it through, I bet somebody just told you how…” and I was able to smile gently and say “God, possibly, since I wrote the game.” And plainly the Deity was with me that day, as I happened to be carrying docs from my UK agent (who’d done the deal) that showed not only that I was the writer, but the five-figure sum I had been paid. …It was a happy day for me. Not so much for him. I’d never had a referent for the word “slink” for a full grown male before. As in “slink away in utter dejection.” I smiled for at least three days without stopping. And am smiling now… I had completely forgotten about this.
Reblogging because “I beat the game” is fantastic, but “I wrote the damn thing” is even better.
