According to jail roster information, James Kirk was arrested on December 9 for "not a small amount" of marijuana possession, allegedly. He was released from custody on December 10 with no bail required. Hennepin County Sheriff's Department carried out the arrest on a bench warrant sought and obtained by the Golden Valley Police Department.
James Kirk, whose birthday is 7/16/1990, might well be the namesake of the famous fictional character of James Tiberius Kirk.
THIS James Kirk's middle name is "Ray," however that also sounds "science fiction-y." His address is 6812 Cloverdale Avenue, Crystal, Minnesota.
I'm not nearly as much of a Star Wars geek as a number of other personalities in North Minneapolis, but all the same it's a bit of a thrill to write a headline containing the name "James Kirk." Now a word to parents who are naming their kids:
Keep in mind that bloggers and headline writers are drawn to odd names, and can you assume your child will never, ever find himself in jail? Look what happened to Picasso and Socrates Dejoachim.
Sure, think about wacky names all you like but then...
Let the medication from labor wear off and pick a more average name.
