Bookmarks Can Be Lethal

Teacher Arrested After Bookmark Called Concealed Weapon:

Kathryn Harrington was flying home from vacation last month when screeners at the Tampa, Fla., airport found her bookmark. It’s an 8.5-inch leather strip with small lead weights at each end.
Airport police said it resembled a weighted weapon that could be used to knock people unconscious. So the 52-year-old special education teacher was handcuffed, put into a police car, and charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

This could be in DiVERSiONZ‘s weekly Fake Headline contest.
