If You Want to See What It's Like to Be Thrown in Dallas County Jail Without Getting Arrested

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.
