    Default Oh NO! Joey Starbuck's been ARRESTED and is in JAIL!

    His mug shot is below.

    His crime? Breaking and entering. Tomorrow I should have the police photographs of his crime...but as of right now, we only have the police blotter to go by:

    On Sunday, December 7, 2008 at approximately 7:04 a.m., officers from the Melmont Sport Horse Farm Division were dispatched to 28XXX Mine Run Road, a horse farm located within Orange County, Virginia, in regards to a suspected breaking and entering. The preliminary investigation revealed that one section of three board fence, in its early twenties, had been broken in half. One board was broken in the middle, and was transported to the burn pile via personal vehicle. It was reported DOA upon arival, as were subsequent boards in the section.

    A second, third, fourth and fifth section, located at the scene, was broken in the middle, top, bottom, and middle, respectively. They are in critical condition and currently undergoing carpentry.

    Officers from Melmont Sport Horse Farm Division (MSHFD) and detectives from the Violent Crimes against Board Fences Unit (VCABFU) also responded to the scene to assist in the investigation. Officers and detectives arrested a JOEY STARBUCK, a four year old equine, who refused to answer any questions regarding the crime. Witnesses, however, are being questioned.

    Currently Mr. Starbuck is being held in a maximum security area, under suicide watch, with a 24-hour guard, and dangerously-high electrical fencing.
    Please, fellow CoTHers, I need to raise bail (the Joey Starbuck Legal Defence fund has been started) to get him out. The judge, at his arraignment, said he was going to have to do community service, repairing public fences ... and he doesn't even know how to use a hammer!

    Anyone else been there???? Any place you can recommend for rehab?

    Oh, the shame of it all. A criminal in the family...

    That's ok.... my 3yo mare developed a habbit of sneaking out to go to the mall. (Ok, she went visiting the TB fillies in the next field and they were having a wonderful gallop when we caught up with her. I guess they're more fun than the mature mares she's turned out with??)

    It's 'tough love', but I think Mr. Joey Starbuck committed the crime and must do the time. That being said, I'll send him a carrot cake with a saw inside (but then if he can't use a hammer, he probably can't use a saw either).

    Just remember, when he goes to trial, if the shoe don't fit, you must acquit.

    It's actually sort of impressive that he destroyed that much fencing. I mean, it's almost like he had to think to himself "HMMMM today I think I'm going to break a lot of fencing! Sounds like a plan!"

    It appears that Joey Starbuck could benefit from the installation of electronic parameters.......

    You haven't seen OM's fencing... I hear Noah used left over wood from the ark to put it up .

    Hire him out to a demolition crew until he earns enough to cover his damages.

    Anybody need a fence taken down?

    So I guess that makes him a Section Five offender.

    In Mr. Joey's defense, although what he did was a grave error in his ways, it has made me smile on a day when smiles were hard to come by.

    Therefore, I hope the jury will request time served and restitution for his offences
