Whenever the telephone rings, William Arias changes from a smiling, easygoing young man to darn near a nervous wreck. For several months, Arias has worn an electronic surveillance anklet while serving a jail sentence at home for drunk driving. That means authorities check on him several times a day and can call at any time. He takes the calls armed with a tall glass of water. He says his mouth gets dry just thinking about being taken back to jail before the anklet comes off in early December.

Angry with paparazzi photos that appear to show Lindsay Lohan partying on the rooftop of her beachfront Venice home, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner told the actress she can no longer entertain more than one guest at a time while under house arrest. Lohan was in court Thursday after a probation report said she had failed a June 13 alcohol test, but Sautner ruled that a failed alcohol test did not violate her probation and that the testing requirement had ended months earlier.

Former NFL player Darren Sharper is slated for a hearing next week in Phoenix to decide whether he can continue to be held in a Los Angeles County jail without bail on charges that he drugged and sexually assaulted two women in Tempe last year. The Arizona charges are the latest against the Super Bowl-winning safety who has been charged with sexually assaulting four women and is under investigation in connection with another four assaults on women across several states. Los Angeles prosecutors initially charged Sharper, 38, with two rape and five drug counts, alleging he drugged and attacked two women he met at a West Hollywood club in two separate incidents.

Andrew Luster, the fugitive rapist who was recently captured in Mexico, slipped away despite an electronic anklet that was supposed to notify authorities if he fled. If Luster strayed more than 150 feet from his Mussel Shoals house in Ventura County, a radio transmitter in the device was to flash a message -- "out of range" -- that would be relayed every 15 minutes to a monitoring service.

When former President Harry S. Truman visited Disneyland in 1957, it was a tossup as to who was most entertained--the President or the public. As his Adventureland boat made its way into the cavernous mouth of a whale that was supposedly Jonah, someone asked the former President if it reminded him of any Republicans. "Oh, no," Truman said. "Whales have got some brains. " And when asked to pose on Dumbo, the elephant, his reply was swift: "Make it a donkey, and I'll do it."
