Oh boy! Small town drama! It seems a local police officer didn't do the math right on converting milliliters to ounces, and so arrested a guy for having too much pepper spray in his car. Now the man has filed a federal lawsuit against pretty much the whole of Conway's administration, from the mayor on down.
Can I just note here how much I would not want to drive around with a bottle of pepper spray in my car? It seems much more likely that I would end up the teary-eyed victim than any would-be criminal!
I think this is a solid argument for the metric system (since logic, reason and global use seem to have failed).
