“Days without Arrest” record is tied

More than five years ago, we installed a “days without an arrest” meter.  I worried at first that it was only a two-digit widget.  What would happen if it ever went above 99?

It’s never been an issue, because the meter has never gone higher than 32.

Today, the all-time high has been matched.

The number is at 32 for only the second time.  But for Chad Johnson’s arrest for allegedly headbutting his wife, the number would be north of 50.

I’ve said within the past year that if it ever gets to 100, I’ll dismantle it.  I’ve still got 68 days before I have to make good on that quasi-promise.
