netbuzz writes: Police in Georgia recently arrested a man for “stealing” an estimated 5 cents worth of electricity from a school where he plugged his car in for 20 minutes during his son’s tennis match. "He broke the law. He stole something that wasn't his," says a police sergeant in Chamblee, Georgia. While not the first to face legal action for taking an unauthorized charge, publicity surrounding the arrest may spark public discussion as to acceptable practices and limits when it’s a car and not a laptop or a cell phone that needs a quick charge.
