Top Five Most-Read Phoenix News Stories of the Week
In case you missed any news action this week, we've got you covered.
Here's our recap of the most-read news stories of the week:
Social Eye Media
Last year, when Governor Jan Brewer announced that the DREAMers who qualified for deferred action would not be allowed to obtain Arizona driver's licenses, the ACLU and other groups shot a hole right through it -- Arizona's been giving out licenses to everyone else the feds have granted deferred action for years.
Now, as Brewer faces a lawsuit that involves that very point, the Arizona Department of Transportation suddenly has a new policy -- no one granted deferred action can get a driver's license.
The Chandler man accused of branding his initials into his girlfriend's vagina has been arrested again, this time for allegedly having sex with a dog.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says detectives served a warrant on 47-year-old Christopher Lynn Jackson's house yesterday, and recovered videos that "clearly show" Jackson and two women "performing various sex acts with a male German Shepherd."
Arizona Highways magazine won't be hitting the newsstands this month, after it wrongly identified a certain mushroom as being edible.
Let's just say that while most people wouldn't consider the fly agaric mushroom to be edible, hippies at a Phish concert might.
There seems to be an especially high number of people who get caught having sex with animals in Arizona.
Just earlier this week, when authorities said a man who was just recently jailed for allegedly branding his initials into his girlfriend's vagina had been re-arrested for allegedly having sex with a dog, we were only a little surprised.
