The Dallas County Sheriff's Department rarely posts videos to the YouTube, and when it does it's usually something unusual -- like, say, this eerie dash-cam smash-em-up. And then there's this morning's find, initially posted a few weeks ago: a mini-doc in which you follow along as a man (actor Fernando Lara) is arrested, booked into the Dallas County Jail, screened for medical conditions, given a bunk in the Suzanne L. Kays jail, arraigned, fingerprinted a second time and released on probation. Bonus: It's scored by the Black Keys.
