ATHENS, Ga. -- University of Georgia police arrested a student and her boyfriend early Wednesday after she locked him in a room at her Russell Hall dormitory during an alcohol-fueled dispute, UGA police said.

Lacey Erin Peek, 19, and her boyfriend, Kyle Brian Monson, 18, were each charged with underage consumption of alcohol, police said.

Peek was charged under the state Family Violence Act with false imprisonment, according to police, and Monson was charged with obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

In my college days this

In my college days this probably wouldn't even have been reported to the RA, much less a statewide "Latest News" story. Sheesh folks, is Mr Morris paying bonuses based on number of "new updates" per day?

It's amazing how something

It's amazing how something that wouldn't have made it past the attention of my dorm monitor back when I was in school in '92 now is something that can make the newspaper.

The reason its news in the AC

The reason its news in the AC is because its free to them. They don't have to hire a real reporter to sniff out real news.

Part of the new regime's

Part of the new regime's commitment to keep us informed up to the minute with every piece of information that someone might send to another person as a tweet. Some much of it is just for the birds, and some of it jacks people up for no good reason. And WHY, WHY WHY! is the birth announcement of Na'Tricianna Ma'Khayvighnon Philpot still anywhere except the archives? What? Are they keeping it around to prod us into recognizing child abuse by their name?

How can a name be child

How can a name be child abuse? Because its not Sue or Christy? You do know minorities will be the majority after a while. Most kids will have a hispanic sounding name. When that time comes in the future. Do we considered it child abuse when somebody names their child Mary Ann or Bobby.

If you want to talk about

If you want to talk about names, I can tell you about names. My parents had unusual names, so they named me a common name. What a pain in the neck. Every where I go, there are numerous people with the same name as I. In school there were always 2 or 3 three of us with the same first name. In the military service, there were five of us in the same division with the same first name. Whenever anybody calls out my name, I never know if they are calling me or someone else. If I had been smart when I was young, I would have started going by my first two initials, R B, and most people would have thought my name was Arby and that would have been fine with me.

Unusual names are good; it is

Unusual names are good; it is when parents name the child something that will take them til they are out of grade school to spell that could be an issue. Or perhaps when it is some that will invite ridicule from other children common sense might need to be applied. My children all were named with this thought process and they seem to like what they got. I mean really think about the name and if you yourself would want that name in the real world once you are grown and decide! I would not appreciate Doga, Coyote, Raisin, etc... please it is child abuse to inflict such pain on a child.

My children have names that

My children have names that are pretty uncommon, but they are all NAMES, and mostly of saints for that matter. I just feel for any kid who gets tagged with something that has more letters than the alphabet and is torture for anyone trying to pronounce it. But the name of this poor infant wasn't actually the point of my 10:26 comment, now, was it?

I really love to read a good newspaper; hard copy and online,
but this article is just one more example of the pathetic garbage that your paper tries to pass as news. P.S. Get some decent comics, or I am no longer buying the paper on Sundays.

One of the fools called 911,

One of the fools called 911, that's how it got reported. My guess is that it was Kyle. The police don't deal well with drunken bs calls. They wanted the police, they got them. Bye bye, Lacey and Kyle! And obstruction of a police officer isn't harmless.
