A judge in Dallas found Ronald Jackson not guilty Tuesday, citing insufficient evidence.
Grand Prairie police arrested Jackson a few hours after he commandeered his daughter's cellphone and refused to return it. The 36-year-old father says a text he found on the phone was rude.
The girl's mother says she owns the cellphone and reported the confiscation as theft.
The father went to court and successfully fought the citation involving his now-15-year-old daughter.
Jackson also kept the cellphone.
One billboard’s war cry against greedy politicians wasting public dollars is creating an online stir not for its message but its memorable slogan: “Take Back Are County.”
The glaring typo seen splashed across a mock-up for the blue and neon green sign appears to be part of a satirical website's attempt to lampoon right-wing beliefs and Christian values.
It seems to be working, but many social media users are apparently not getting in on the joke.
All she needed was a little air!
A major search and rescue operation in Cornwall, England, Monday discovered that reports of a body floating in the water were blown out of proportion.
The actual victim turned out to be.........an inflatable sex doll.
A fisherman phoned emergency workers to report that he had spotted a lifeless body floating face down in Newquay Bay, prompting the air and sea search, the agency noted.
About 90 minutes later, a helicopter crew spotted the doll in the middle of the bay. The faux female wore a "New York" T-shirt and polka-dot pants. The sex toy's giant red lips were unsmudged by the salt water.
Despite the unexpected find, a rescueofficial pointed out that the fisherman took the right courseof action in calling, the BBC noted.
"The 999 caller gave accurate information which led to a successful search and a positive outcome," lifeboat operations manager Gareth Horner said. "While the doll may have been deflated by the incident we were happy to discover no-one was hurt."
According to the Telegraph, the doll might have beena prank in response to a local Newquay ban on sex dolls.
