A car stop didn’t end well for this Georgia dad. When 24-year-old Detavis Madison was pulled over for driving with his infant daughter on his lap down a highway, he allegedly put the 3-month-old girl on the floor of his car and told police he was the only person in the vehicle. Madison’s attempt at hiding the child didn’t fool police, who quickly found her. The news outlet reported that Officers then discovered a stolen handgun beneath the baby after lifting her up. During the police search, officers also allegedly found marijuana and at least 500 ecstasy pills in the shape of Lego characters. The girl was given to her mother after Madison was hauled off to jail. Madison faces a slew of charges, including possession of a firearm and transporting a child in a passenger vehicle without a restraining system. (https://goo.gl/CG56a7)

A Florida Man who identified himself to police as “Ben Dover” was arrested on an obstruction charge for providing cops with a phony name. On Tuesday, a sheriff’s deputy asked a man to leave a park in Palm Harbor, a St. Petersburg suburb. In an arrest affidavit, the cop noted that John Chestnut Park closed at 6:00 p.m. and, as such, he was preparing to issue a trespass warning to the park-goer. Asked to identify himself, “the defendant responded by stating his name was ‘Ben Dover,’” Deputy K. Baldwin noted. The man then gave the cop the middle finger and got in the deputy’s face “as if he was going to hit him.” The man then fled on foot, but was apprehended after a short chase. “Dover,” as it turned out, was actually Andrew Leighton, a 22-year-old Palm Harbor resident. Leighton was charged with two misdemeanors: obstruction by a disguised person and resisting an officer. He was released from the county jail early yesterday morning upon posting $300 bond.
