That chick who insisted on being able to get to the waiting area despite your desires to get that perfect shot.

Brookline Police charge a local man with gau'ing berserk at the Golden Temple on Beacon Street early Friday morning:

Upon arrival [officers] observed the kitchen to be in disarray with dozens of broken plates, prepared food, and other items scattered on the floor. Mr. Homan was placed under arrest and brought to the police station. Fallon ambulance determined that they were going to transport him to Beth Israel Hospital. While the subject was being escorted to a room he slapped a nurse across the face and became very belligerent. During a struggle to restrain the subject, he also managed to hit the officers.

Also in Brookline, police report that when they responded to 229 St. Paul St., where some new residents moving in were reporting the theft of their stuff, they noticed a resident of the building carrying a stereo into his apartment. They asked to take a look and when he said yes, they discovered the missing items. Busted.

Kung Pow I.

Innocent until proven guilty.
