Brickbat: Sweet Hitchhiker
Rodney Peterson has three children and has a fourth due later this year. So when he spotted two teenage girls walking in a snow storm with "no umbrellas, no coats or hood" he says he felt he should help. He pulled his vehicle over and asked if they needed a ride. They said no, so he drove on. But the girls reported his offer, and three days later, Barrington, Illinois, police came to his house and arrested him for disorderly conduct.
