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:
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.
