"Wanted man attorney disbarred"


Now that's a headline for you (the full headline was "Wanted man attorney disbarred, six others disciplined"). It turns out that the attorney was wanted by the FBI, which makes him a wanted man, which makes him a wanted man attorney. Still, it seems like one for the noun pile files; usually, a two-noun pile is understandable enough, but this one struck me as a bit jarring. ("Fugitive attorney disbarred" would have been a bit smoother, I think.)
