Police cite 10-year-old for sloppy seat belt
Police ticketed a 10-year-old Texas boy for not wearing his seat belt properly. Marshall May admits his seat belt became tangled as an aunt drove him home from school, but says he was “really scared” when a cop stopped the car and issued him a citation. “He made me sign my signature,” said May, “but I don’t have a signature because I’m 10 years old.”

Teen wins legal battle over nose stud
A North Carolina teen has won a legal battle to wear a nose stud to school. Ariana Iacono argued that as a member of the “Church of Body Modification” she should be exempt from the jewelry ban at Clayton High School. The school this week agreed to Iacono’s demands, saying it had decided to “reserve resources for the classroom instead of using it on legal fees.”
