|Anti-Drug cartoon character arrested|
New York, New York: Daren, official mascot of D.A.R.E. America, was apprehended on Monday in a crackhouse by N.Y. Police. Daren, the cartoon lion meant to serve as a mascot for the anti-drug message that D.A.R.E. promotes, was arrested for possession and sale of narcotics.
Witnesses report that Daren was "stoned out of his mind on crack," when police arrived on the scene. A blood test administered by New York police stated that the level of cocaine in Daren's blood was enough to kill 3 average cartoon characters.
D.A.R.E., standing for "Drug Abuse Resistance Education", is a U.S. Federally funded organization which reaches out to youth, passing along a message against drug use. D.A.R.E. Apparently, the message just didn't get through to Daren. Recently, his life has been a downward spiral of drug-induced paranoia.
