    Washington Post... the title of the article was "Best Comeback Line Ever."

    In summary, the police arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22-year-old white male, resident of
    Dacula, GA, in a pumpkin patch at 11:38 p.m. on Friday. Lawrence will be charged with
    lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency, and public intoxication at the Gwinnett
    County courthouse on Monday.

    The suspect explained that as he was passing a pumpkin patch he decided to stop. "You
    know, a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around here for miles.
    At least I thought there wasn't," he stated in a phone interview.

    Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin
    that he felt was appropriate to his purposes, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his
    need. "I guess I was just really into it, you know?" he commented with evident embarrassment.
    In the process, Lawrence apparently failed to notice a Gwinnett County police car
    approaching and was unaware of his audience until officer Brenda Taylor approached him.

    "It was an unusual situation, that's for sure," said officer Taylor. "I walked up to (Lawrence)
    and he's...just working away at this pumpkin." Taylor went on to describe what happened
    when she approached Lawrence. "I just went up and said, 'Excuse me sir, but do you
    realize that you are screwing a pumpkin?' "He froze and was clearly very surprised that I
    was there, and then looked me straight in the face and said, "A pumpkin?, ****...is it
    midnight already?":D

    If I were the judge, I would have to let him off just because of the witty comeback!
