It all started with a $25 ticket for walking a dog without a leash. As reported in The Washington Post, per Washington, DC resident Peter McMahon:
When I got to the station on April 12 at 6:45 a.m., I was promptly arrested. Throughout the day I was put in five cells, handcuffed three times, fingerprinted twice, made to wear leg shackles and photographed before being released at about 5 p.m.
Handcuffs?! Leg shackles?! You’ve got to click here and read the whole story to believe it (and even then, it’s hard to believe).
