Wow! Jumped into the forum with both feet didn't you.
Couple of important suggestions before others chime in:
First go to your profile and add your location - many times post/replies are state specific and it helps the moderators.
Second become familiar with the rules for citing - especially regarding laws AND occurrences like this. Copies/links of police report(s), newspaper, etc. will otherwise be requested for confirmation and detail.
Unfortunately, there are those that will manufacture such things just to engage us. So yes, I'd like to see the verifiable reference first. Hope you take it in the spirit intended.
