This is too nutty for words

(Doooook, you might want to skip this one.)

Try threading your way through this legal morass.

Summary: woman is pulled over for breastfeeding her child while driving down the Ohio Turnpike. She doesn't pull over for three miles because she's allegedly been asaulted by police officers on the side of the road before, and is under instruction from her husband to go to the nearest public place with witnesses before she pulls over. (OK, that's semi-sane. I've lived in one state where if you were pulled over on an empty road, you were allowed to keep driving until you got to a place with other people around.)

Here's where it goes off the deep end: her husband is claiming that according to their religion, he is the sole head of the family and is the only one who can punish the woman for a public act. Therefore, he should be the defendant, not her.

But go read the story. It's even wackier than what I've described.
