Usually if you follow your conscience and know right from wrong, you don’t have to worry about winding up in jail. Most laws are pretty obvious and make a lot of sense.
But throughout history, some really strange laws have been written into place in America… and many of them still apply today.
A priest in Florida was arrested and fined $ 500 for bringing a homeless man a plate of food.
A man in North Carolina was arrested for failing to return a VHS copy of Freddy Got Fingered to his local video rental store. Tom Greene, the film’s star, offered to cover his legal fees.
A four-year old in Connecticut was arrested for reckless endangerment and fleeing the scene after giving his mom a wet willy in a restaurant.
A student in South Carolina was arrested for writing about shooting and killing his pet dinosaur. He was charged with disorderly conduct.
A woman in South Carolina was arrested for swearing at a grocery store. She was charged with disorderly content for telling her son to “stop squishing the f*cking bread.”
