Charges: Marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia

Here's a list of things that need to be shaved off immediately:
1.) That.

Charges: Consuming liquor in public, minor in possession of liquor

How to Disappoint Your Parents, for Dummies, 1st edition.

Charges: Criminal damage, assault

You know that guy who runs hit mouth non-stop, and you think to yourself, "Does that guy ever shut the hell up?" Here is your answer, and that answer is "no."
