As a general rule, the worst thing that can happen during a comedy set is realizing you’ve accidentally stumbled into some kind of hellish Dane Cook/Daniel Tosh marathon. But it could be worse! You could, for example, be sitting in a comedy show around midnight at the Upright Citizens Brigade’s Chelsea theater when four members of New York’s finest come in, fish you out of the audience, and arrest you. That’s what looks to have happened this past Saturday night, during a UCB variety show called Underground Americana. The comedian onstage, Adam Newman, says he watched officers come in with flashlights and immediately handcuff a guy sitting to the left side of the stage. When Newman asked what was going on, an NYPD officer advised him to “shut the fuck up.”

Catoosa County Magistrate Judge Anthony Peters has been permanently dismissed for smoking marijuana and acting crazy

‚ÄčA judge in Georgia has been fired for smoking marijuana and for kicking down the doors at a relative’s house. The state Supreme Court unanimously, immediately and permanently removed Judge Anthony Peters of Catoosa County from the bench.

Peters, 49, “has not sought treatment for his admitted drug problems and has done nothing to show that he has any ability to live up to the high standard of conduct expected of members of the judiciary in Georgia,” reports Jim Galloway at the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The court cited Judge Peters’ weekly use of marijuana during a two-month period from March to May of 2010, during which he said he used cannabis to wean himself off prescription narcotics, reports Steve Visser at the AJC. The judge said he had become addicted to prescription opiates after being seriously injured in a 2005 ATV accident.
The court also cited an incident in which Peters kicked in the doors of the home of his sister-in-law’s estranged husband, reports Andra Varin at Newsmax.

In another bizarre incident, the judge pointed a gun at himself and told another judge he was “not afraid to die.”
