Now, this is non-yawn inducing news. What a loser. Apparently, Cowboy Mikey is no angel! Glad no one was hurt. He sure was peeing in his own pool.

For once the police exercised restraint. But the next news story we're going to hear is how much money and time it cost the PD to surround the house and stand by. I wonder how the guy was spending his riches.

Here's the movie plot: He bought thousands of Super Lotto tickets, and while jailed, wins $50 million. Your imagination can take it from here ....

Never mind the costings, just be grateful that this "HOOD" was taken into custody and will be tried on the charges pending. One less "Hood" off the city streets.

.... Miguel Angel Caballero

Hmmm, when I was in school taking Spanish classes they told me that caballero meant gentleman ... so it's kind of odd that this guy in particular no angel and no gentleman, isn't it?
