McGill was charged with burglary of a structure, causing more than $1,000 in damage, possession of burglary tools, petty theft and resisting an officer without violence.
Left out of the report is the answer to this vital question: What’s there to steal in a probation office worth risking your probation? A surprisingly full petty cash drawer? One of those industrial-grade Keurig machines? The Windsor Crown Jewels? Inquiring minds want to know.

Another Saturday Night and I Ain’t Got Nobody…
Don’t judge. He brought the noodles with him, didn’t steal anything, and so the restaurant owner declined to press charges. Don’t you love a story about a hungry naked bongo player with a happy ending?

Maybe they can find new judicial appointments in Florida, because if any judges ever could figure out the absolute best ways to make the punishment fit the Florida crime, it would have to be these three.
Stay tuned, and perhaps we’ll find out on the next exciting…
