The Maine lawyer who divulged President Bush’s drunken-driving arrest days before the 2000 election was arrested after he was spotted on a highway overpass wearing an Osama bin Laden Halloween costume and toting a toy gun. Tom Connolly, 49, was charged with criminal threatening, a misdemeanor, and was released after posting $500 bail. He intends to plead not guilty. “There was a First Amendment this morning when I woke up. I don’t know how it evaporated with the dawn,” Connolly told reporters after his release. Police said the costume included plastic dynamite, grenades and a replica of an AK-47 assault rifle. “The whole thing is just incredibly bizarre,” said Police Chief Ed Googins. “It just crossed the line.” Connolly’s wife has described him as “marvelously eccentric.” Nailed A dispute over a St. Bernard between a Florida woman who adopted the dog after Hurricane Katrina and a Louisiana couple that says they boarded the dog before the storm now centers on one of the dog’s toenails. Pam Bondi claims the dog is not the same one that Steven and Dorren Couture lost after the storm. She said her dog has all his toenails. According to paperwork from a shelter where the Coutures’ dog was held, the dog had a “ingrown rear toenail” removed. Murray Silverstein, the Coutures’ lawyer, said that’s wrong. “The intake says it was clipped, not taken out. Now we have this toenail as a basis of an identity dispute.”
