Guests’ dogs can be admitted to the floor, but dogs are still forbidden to play poker.
What a great
example she is
The usual furtive restroom photographer is male, but sheriff’s deputies in Plantation, Fla., arrested Rhonda Hollander, 47, in July and charged her with several misdemeanors and a felony stemming from an episode in which she allegedly followed a man inside the men’s room at the West Regional Courthouse and snapped photos of him at a urinal.
Hollander insisted she had violated no law, and indeed the charges against her were only for conduct after she was confronted by deputies (when she continued to take pictures as they led her away).
Hollander is actually Judge Hollander, who works in the building as a traffic magistrate.
