    after they'd "swiped a laptop"?

    Is that another euphemism? She was swiping her boyfriends laptop then gave him a carjacking when they both unexpectedly got more wood than they'd planned on...

    "she'd actually been distracted while performing a "sex act"*"

    Was she rear ended, I can't imagine it was a face on incident.

    New meaning

    It could also give a new meaning to the phrase, 'swiping a laptop'.

    for the wood?

    Hmm

    I guess the police were not convinced by the sex act story either. And having looked at the picture, you can see why....

      I'm not usually one to make comment ...

      ... on someone's appearance, but I am forced to wonder at the desperation of the "boyfriend". Even allowing for the notoriously awful quality of police mug-shots, this one would come last in a beauty contest for wart-hogs!

      No - in this case it seems to have been Mirror, Signal, Man-over

    "..charges including " ... hindering apprehension"."

    So it's illegal to run away and you get additional charges for it? Surely there are long standing historical precedents for the folk-tradition of running away from the authorities after committing a crime. It's part of our heritage.

      Failure to stop

      In the UK this would be "failure to stop when required to do so by a constable in uniform".

      Surely this is common sense. For example, if the cops try to stop you for some traffic offence but you lead them on a hour long chase, you would have to expect different penalties than if you had stopped promptly and cooperated.

    Why isn't there a Sick-Bag icon?

    @Ex-IT

    There's the spod with the glasses icon. Boyf must need a new prescription. Or there's the troll - disturbing similarity to the CGI creature in LotR. Or perhaps more relevantly, there's the alien - "there is an extra-terrestrial explanation for all of this".

    I can see it now. "It was horrible. I was beamed up to the alien spaceship and they performed all manner of degrading experiments on me. I could deal with that. But then they beamed me back next to this *thing* which wanted sex with me. Please doctor, can you help me?"
