SACRAMENTO - It isn't enough these days for certain state lawmakers to defend their voting records when seeking reelection. Some also have to explain arrest records. Within the last 20 months, five state legislators and one former state senator with active campaigns have been arrested on suspicion of crimes including drunk driving, perjury, voter fraud, shoplifting and trying to carry a loaded gun through airport security. Not since the FBI sting known as Shrimpscam, which targeted influence peddling in the Capitol in the 1990s, have so many state lawmakers posed for booking photos in such a short span of time.

Oakland defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested Sunday morning on a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief after allegedly causing a commotion at a neighbor's house while inebriated. We probably wouldn't even be discussing his arrest right now ... if it weren't for that unfortunate mug shot . Now I don't want to make fun of the man -- like I said, not his finest moment. I'll just describe the mug shot as "unflattering" and let it go at that. Bryant, who was held on $1,000 bond after being booked at 9:24 a.m. Sunday, has 10 1/2 sacks in four seasons with the Raiders and is due to be an unrestricted free agent on March 12. Can you imagine potential employers searching for information about Bryant online and that's what pops onto their screens?

Former Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich blames overzealous prosecutors and political enemies for his downfall in a new book that offers glimpses of his rocky six-year tenure and his upcoming defense against federal corruption charges. "The Governor" describes his arrest on charges that included trying to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama last year. In keeping with the governor's long-held position that he's been victimized by rivals and "unethical" prosecutors, Blagojevich writes that his guiding thought in selecting a new senator was, "How much do I love the people of Illinois?"

Roman Polanski's attorneys helped provoke his arrest by complaining to an appellate court this summer that Los Angeles County prosecutors had made no real effort to capture the filmmaker in his three decades as a fugitive, two law enforcement sources familiar with the case told The Times. The accusation that the Los Angeles County district attorney's office was not serious about extraditing Polanski to facing sentencing in a child sex case he fled in 1978 was a minor point in two lengthy July court filings by the director's attorneys.

Pakistani intelligence sources in Karachi said Sunday that security forces in the southern port city have arrested Adam Gadahn, a Southern California native who became a top propagandist for Al Qaeda and is wanted by the U.S. on treason charges. A U.S. counter-terrorism official said later that the CIA and other agencies "are looking into reports" of Gadahn's capture, but could not immediately confirm his arrest.
