Why do you have to go through the hassle of putting your belongings through an x-ray machine whenever you enter a courthouse? This is why. Someone might try to slip a dangerous iguana into the bowels of justice. So it's a good thing that the deputy sheriffs of Boulder County, Colorado were paying close attention. The Daily Camera quotes a police representative:
"At the Justice Center only service animals are allowed. No iguanas...even if it goes through the X-ray machine."
Boulder County sheriff's spokeswoman Carrie Haverfield said the person was turned away.
"Apparently he was there with some friends, so he waited outside with his iguana," Haverfield said.
