Prosecutors say a video shows a Connecticut correction officer running a 40-yard-dash in women's clothing and high heels — at a time he had claimed he was too injured to work.

But he had a totally legitimate excuse:

He's accused of taking part in a radio station's contest for Hannah Montana concert tickets last year. Not only did he have to dress in drag but he had to carry an egg on a spoon.

It's ok - he was high on illegal painkillers at the time. He's still unable to work, if not for physical reasons, then for ethical ones.

Define *injured* FIRST!

Did he win?

...or not...

anyway, the psychological injuries, inflicted upon him by his children, were also the cause of his participation in the aforementioned race.

....and people diss criminal defense attorneys. *sigh*

And this is a law and order guy, who did neither.

he will be the 'belle of the cellblock' if he returns to work...

butt...did he win???

'correction officer'? Does he specialize in just one particular correction? I thought the term was 'correctionS officer,' but perhaps I need to be corrected.

psst, siouxie..."Court documents do not list an attorney for Dalton, and his phone number is unlisted. And no, he didn't win the contest."

oops... thanks, cg!

*note to self - REAL the whole damn thing first!*

and READ it too.


If the winner of that race had been good looking, the headline could have read: "Dish Runs Away With Spoon."

Or maybe not.

*snork* @ Lairbo!!!

I truly believe he has a case for temporary insanity going there. "Hannah Montana made me defraud my workplace!"

Uf I was well enough for work I would'a' won.

If I was well enough for work I would'a' won.

So Hannah Montana made him do it? That's what they all say when they're caught in drag.

"i'd run a miley (in drag) for a cyrus!"

I officially second Diva's snork.

*shakes hands with Tex* Thank you, Ma'am. ;D

Wow, I actually saw that newscast.

And insom, you are truly a national treasure. :)

You're most welcome, divine Diva!

Hannah Montana's not at fault. He wanted an excuse to do this in public. I doubt he has kids.

Doesn't matter, Merri. Hannah Montana's the new Algore. I blame Hannah Montana!

Amen, Diva!

He's accused of taking part in a radio station's contest for Hannah Montana concert tickets last year.

So entering a radio show contest is a crime now ??

I was listening to that broadcast on the way to class. To be precise, the name of the contest was Hannah Mantana.
