Actually, That's an MP3 Player in My Pocket


Darren Nixon had left work and had just gotten of the bus taking him home when police officers, accompanied by police dogs and pointing guns at him, demanded that he stop. It turns out that a woman had seen his MP3 player and had mistaken it for a gun. That's something the Staffordshire, England, police should have figured out when they searched him after stopping Nixon. Instead, they took him into custody, photographed him, took his fingerprints and a DNA sample, and interrogated him. A spokesman for the department says the officers acted properly. No word on whether Nixon's prints, DNA, and mug shot will remain in their files.
