The pajama-wearing boys raided the kitchen, snacking on goodies like Teddy Grahams and marshmallows, and even climbed a bunk bed to find some stuffed animals to play with. Lovorn, who works third shift, was sleeping at the other end of the house. "I would have right away looked through my house if I'd known they were missing," Lovorn says. She woke up just as searchers finally saw the boys leaving through a back door, one wearing her son's Clemson University football helmet.
The boys were returned to their parents, who, while relieved, are probably wondering, "If this is what they're like when they're two, what are they going to do when they're 20?"
My husband stood in our daughters' bedroom today and said, "They couldn't have made a bigger mess if they tried." Then I took him downstairs and showed him pictures of what the Farrer boys did, and he felt a little better.

After alleging that the young man had ridden his dirt bike on the sidewalk, police handcuffed the boy and took him down to the station -- where they took his fingerprints and mugshot.

Cops Break Teen's Arm in Arrest Over Dropped Cake
This 16-year-old dropped some cake during lunch and did an average job cleaning up the mess. For some cops took the teen's lackluster approach to cleanliness as justification for arresting her -- and breaking her arm in the process.

10-Year-Old Cuts Her Sandwich With a Knife...and Breaks the Law?
The rules for splitting sandwiches are apparently more rigid than you might think. At least that's the case in one Florida school where a "no tolerance" policy led to felony weapons charges against a 7th grader who was just trying to eat her lunch.
Squatter Couple Accused Of Raising Toddler In FilthA Modesto couple is in custody, accused of raising a 3-year-old toddler in a home full of garbage, with no heat, water or sewage service.
