"A woman was ordered to serve three days in jail after a judge found her in contempt of court for inappropriate dress." It's not as draconian as it sounds: Kirstie Arnold, 28, of Lancaster, Kentucky, had already been warned twice for wearing hot pants to previous court appearances and on the second occasion was fined $50. When confronted by Judge Karen Booth as to why she insisted upon perping this crime of fashion, Arnold said that she "forgot." The memory lapse cost her three days in the pen for contempt, not counting whatever she gets for the original offense of having knocked over a tombstone and driven away. [The Guardian]
