Smoking out a criminal

Brave police officers in Bismarck protect North Dakotans from killer comedian:

They used to call him Tater Salad, but in North Dakota comedian Ron White now goes by another name -- suspect.

It's all over something White did with his cigar during a show in Bismarck -- he lit it. Apparently the city has an ordinance against smoking in public places, and when some 55-year-old spoiler of fun tipped off the cops about White's routine, they decided to investigate.

According to the Bismark Tribune, a plain clothed officer rolled over to one of White's shows to document the alleged law-breaking. The report says White took all of three puffs during the show.

Sounds like someone fun to hang out with, doesn't it, a guy who goes to a comedy show

Kind of makes you wonder how many "good-nazi wannabes" live in your own community, doesn't it?

Undercover? Glad they used Bismark's finest for such a criminal rampage. Dangers everywhere.
