So someone gets arrested for shop lifting and his name is given to the public, but some woman is arrested for assaulting a police officer and there is no mention of her name. I wonder why that is ? My guess is favorites are being played. If you are going to print people name in the paper and make it public when they are arrested, then print everyone's name. That is only fair !!!

If you read the article more carefully, you will see that she was not arrested, but will be summonsed...two very different things!
