Today in Strange First Sentences of News Stories

Posted By on Tue, Jul 31, 2012 at 5:00 PM

From the Oregonian, a story that turns out far better than one might expect:


A man who was intoxicated and masturbating to pornography when he drove a stolen car through the crime scene tape surrounding the homicide of a teen-age boy last year will not have to register as a sex offender.

In case you don't feel like actually reading the story, the once-intoxicated masturbator has been participating in drug treatment and has apparently cleaned up his life, leading to the judge allowing the man to withdraw his guilty plea for public indecency. Hooray for happy endings, right?
