The Brains of a Houseplant

Police in Attleboro, Mass., spotted two men struggling to carry a large planter out of a business. One of the men ran when he saw the officers, and police offered the other, Enson M. Ibanez, 25, a break: if he’d put the planter back, they wouldn’t arrest him. “No, it’s too heavy,” Ibanez said, extending his hands for the handcuffs. Ibanez was charged with disorderly conduct, malicious destruction, and larceny. (JW/Salem News) ...Prosecutors plan to ask the judge to sentence him to hard labor.
