There are days when Cuff ‘Em is horrible and the only story we can wrangle is something about a guy wearing a Colorado Rockies baseball hat & ‘poofy’ jacket jumping through a drive-thru window and robbing a coffee shop. Then there are days when BC comes across starlets like Georgia soccer player Carli Shultis. This chick was arrested last week on one of the craziest theft charges – EVER.
Via the Athens Banner-Herald:
Shultis, 19, was arrested by UGA Police and charged with theft by shoplifting Tuesday morning at the Tate Center Bulldog Café. A restaurant employee called police after witnessing Shultis putting hash browns in her pants and then proceeding without paying for them, UGA Police spokesman Lt. Eric Dellinger said.
Police were dispatched at 8:32 a.m., and Shultis admitted to the responding officer she had taken the $1.06 order of hash browns, according to Dellinger.
Shultis was taken to the Clarke County Jail, where she was released that morning on $1,500 bail, according to records.
Two questions immediately come to mind:
1.) Was Carli drunk? Um, 8:32 a.m. on a Tuesday likely rules out alcohol as a factor.
2.) Is Carli having some emotional & psychological issues right now? Well, according to her Facebook, Carli went from being “in a relationship” to “single” on Jan. 8. Could be some lingering effects that led to the five finger hash brown discount. Guess we’ll have to wait for the trial.

Todd Helton is relieved all the hype of a year ago surrounding the big-spending Colorado Rockies has subsided significantly.
Slugger Carlos Gonzalez acknowledges that the $80 million, seven-year contract he received last offseason and Troy Tulowitzki's monster deal might have been a distraction for a club that began 2011 as an NL West favorite.
Helton says, ''When we...
SCOTTSDALE — The Rockies’ rotation will begin its American Idol-type auditions this week, attempting to narrow the candidates.

Helton appears to be back in businessSCOTTSDALE, ariz. — The baseball rocketed off Todd Helton's bat Saturday, inciting a big grin from Rockies hitting coach Carney Lansford.
Marco Scutaro waited, peering around the clubhouse. There had to be more. Maybe they were running late, or scrambling to find tripods for cameras or batteries for recorders.
The Rockies' interest in pitcher Guillermo Moscoso lies not just in the one thing he could do well, but in the variety of options they have with the right-hander.
It was a recurring image throughout the Rockies' first week of Spring Training. Troy Tulowitzki would take batting practice with the club's first group -- players like Todd Helton, Carlos Gonzalez, Michael Cuddyer and Jason Giambi -- but when other position players would retreat into the clubhouse afterward, he'd emerge to take grounders with the young, secondary group.
A tour of the Rockies’ plush spring training clubhouse tells me something. The Rockies are taking this team culture, team chemistry, team building thing seriously.
Here’s what I mean:
* Drew Pomeranz, the 23-year-old ace in waiting, has a locker next to 49-year-old Jamie Moyer.
* Wilin Rosario, the 23-year-old catcher of the future, has a locker next to 36-year-old Ramon Hernandez...
Five years before one became Tulo and 10 years before Linsanity, Troy Tulowitzki and Jeremy Lin squared off in high school hoops.
