DeEvening Links: Happy New Year

Banned from McPherson Square (Escambia County, Fla., Sheriff’s Office)
District of DeBonis closes out an eventful 2011 on this note: James Donald Ruffin, accused of kicking a U.S. Park Police police officer so hard in the groin that he vomited, has been released from custody. But the Examiner notes that Ruffin, of Sandy Springs, Ga., has been barred from returning to McPherson Square. (The mug shot above is from Ruffin’s April 2010 arrest in Florida.) Happy New Year! See you Tuesday.
