Make Yourself Right at Home

houseguest.jpgHere’s a great story from the Jolly Old Brits. Shane Sims is a 19-year-old who has been serving a 2-year-probation for a prior assault. He was recently in court over this, where he admitted to breaching a supervision order (dunno what that is, exactly, but I’m guessing it’s similar to failing to check in with his probation officer). So the court ordered him to spend a week under house arrest, complete with an ankle tag.

Trouble is, the house he was ordered to stay in wasn’t his own and the folks who live there, Brenda and Robert Cole, kinda didn’t want this young hoodlum around. See, Sims is friends with the Cole’s 16-year-old daughter, and he claims she said he could crash at their house since he had a falling out with his own pops. When Sims then went to court for this whole thing, he put down the Cole’s address as his own, so the official court order said this was the house he had to stay in.

The cops said they were helpless to do anything about the situation unless/until they had an official court order. As for Sims, well, he was pretty understanding about the Cole’s unhappiness over the situation, allegedly telling Brenda Cole:

I’m staying here until the tag’s off. There’s fuck all you can do about it. The courts have told me.

Pleasant lad.

BAM!

They should have gotten a restraining order against him. That would, like, rip a hole in the judicial space time continuum, or something...
