Too casual

Judge socks it to lawyer who hates socks

A lawyer who habitually appears in court without socks faces sanctions including possible fines if he shows up sockless again in an Indiana courtroom. Blackford Circuit Judge Dean Young issued an Aug. 25 order directing lawyer Todd Glickfield of Marion to wear appropriate business attire, including socks and a tie, in the future. Glickfield appeared without socks in Young's court Aug. 22. The order says the court advised Glickfield he wasn't appropriately dressed, to which Glickfield replied, "I hate socks." The order also states Glickfield has appeared in court without a tie and with an open-collared shirt.

Into the shadows

Maybe her eyes gave her away

A woman whose mug shot shows her in heavy aqua and pink eye shadow is accused of shoplifting $144 in makeup. Police in Fayetteville, Ark., arrested 31-year-old Brandy Allen, accusing her of stuffing handfuls of eye shadow into her purse. Officers said when confronted, Allen went on a profanity-laced tirade and tried to damage makeup as she pulled it out of her purse so it would appear used. Allen was released on $830 bail on charges of shoplifting and disorderly conduct.
