A man who's been arrested over 1,500 times will be spending yet another Thanksgiving behind bars.
Henry Earl, dubbed "World's Most Arrested Man" by The Smoking Gun, was arrested last month for public intoxication in Lexington, Ky. The 65-year-old has spent nearly 6,000 days -- nearly 16 and a half years -- in custody over the course of his life, almost entirely on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
Earl's first arrest, which took place in 1970, was for carrying a concealed weapon.
Earl made national news in 2008 when Judge Gary Payne, noting that Earl was in court for his 1,000th public intoxication arrest, sentenced Earl to 1,000 days in jail "for your anniversary," WBKO reported.
Multiple media outlets also reported the arrest as Earl's 1,000th. However, The Smoking Gun called the sentence an error, stating that at the arrest in question was actually Earl's 1,333rd.
In any case, The Smoking Gun has put together a stellar graphic depicting some of the best of Earl's mugshots over the years.

John Wender of New York has decided to sue his ex-girlfriend after she claimed that he had a “micro-penis” in an online rant. According to the lawsuit, Wender is suing Louise Silberling, editor at Cornell University, for $1.25 million.
Wender, 53, and Siberling only went out on three dates after meeting on an online dating site two years ago. However, their courtship went sour fast and Siberling wanted to make sure that other women would not make the mistake of dating Wender.
Siberling created an online blog called truthaboutjouhnwender.wordpress.com that featured several scathing articles and poems about Wender. She suggested that he had a “micro-penis,” was infected with an STD and was turned on by auto-erotic asphyxia.
Siberling wrote, “John Wender is a pathetic little gnome. He smells foul, he’s got herpes and he has the smallest penis I’ve ever seen. A pity by definition, his pubic hairs are white like Santa Claus. He gave my friend herpes and more. Good catch ladies!”
Wender sued Siberling and says that her blog has affected his life and caused his kids embarrassment. He believes Siberling is a maniac and is suing for defamation.
Maybe not intentional, but Mike Tomlin certainly didn't mind being in Jacoby Jones' way.
Jacoby Jones answered a touchdown by Emmanuel Sanders with a huge 73-yard kickoff return. He busted through a huge hole, and all of a sudden there was nobody between him and the end zone besides... Mike Tomlin?
That's Tomlin, apparently watching the play unfold on the Jumbotron -- hey, I wouldn't want to look directly at the Steelers playing football either, but I'm not their coach -- but the whole scenario seems a little bit strange.
Tomlin is literally as far out onto the field as a coach is allowed to be -- in fact, he kinda has a foot on the field, directly in Jones' way. It's clear that Jones kinda cuts back into the field of play as he approaches Tomlin -- he also kinda swipes his arm at Tomlin -- which didn't necessarily lead to Cortez Allen catching him from behind, but it certainly didn't hurt.
It seems unlikely that Tomlin would premeditate a scenario where he stood on the edge of the sidelines to interfere with a potential Ravens TD touchdown... but he does look DIRECTLY at Jones out of the corner of his eye, and doesn't make an attempt to get out of the way until the last moment. If the refs had ruled he interfered, they could've awarded the Ravens anything, including a TD.
he was laughing after the play happened
The girl that was brutally beaten during a videotaped showdown by a teen named Sharkeisha is speaking out. KHOU Houston has identified the victim in the video as Shamichael Manuel, a
17-year-old student at Cypress Creek High School, who was attacked by Sharkeisha over a boy.
Shamichael told KHOU that she thought she was headed to a friends place to pick up some of her belongings when Sharkeisha, 16, viciously punched and kicked her.
I was just in shock. I was like oh my God. Did she really do this? Youre supposed to be my close friend, Manuel said.
We were talking in school earlier that day. She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her, she added.
Sharkeisha or Sharkeysha, the correct spelling is still unknown, has not been arrested nor suspended from school since the beating took place off school grounds.
Manuels mother however has filed a police report with the Harris County Sheriffs Office.

For Brad Pitt's 50th birthday, fiancee Angelina Jolie is pulling out all the stops: the actress purchased Pitt a heart-shaped island, located 50 miles north of New York City.
The island, called Petra, also contains two houses that were designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, a personal favorite of Pitt's.
"As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed," a source told the U.K.'s Mirror. "The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat. It's very private. And Angelina knows the fact the island is in the shape of a heart will mean so much to him."
This isn't the first extravagant Frank Lloyd Wright-themed present Jolie has purchased for Pitt. In 2011, Jolie purchased a California waterfall and the land surrounding it for Pitt's birthday, so they could construct a home on it in homage to Fallingwater, Wright's most famous structure.
Petra is 11 acres, has a helicopter pad, and features a Wright-designed cottage built in 1950 and a main house that was built in 2008 based off Wright's plans. Jolie reportedly purchased it for approximately $24 million.

ORLANDO, Fla. -
An African-American teen says she faces expulsion because administrators at her private school want her to cut and shape her hair.
Vanessa VanDyke said she was given one week to decide to whether cut her hair or leave Faith Christian Academy in Orlando, a school she's been going to since the third grade.
But for now, she and her mother do not plan to change her hair because it is part of the 12-year-old's identity. But her natural hair style comes with a cost.
"It says that I'm unique," said VanDyke. "First of all, it's puffy and I like it that way. I know people will tease me about it because it's not straight. I don't fit in."
VanDyke said that first the teasing from other students, but now, school leaders seem to be singling her out for her appearance.
Faith Christian Academy has a dress code and rules against how students can wear their hair. The student handbook reads: "Hair must be a natural color and must not be a distraction," and goes on to state examples that include, but are not limited to, mohawks, shaved designs and rat tails.
"A distraction to one person is not a distraction to another," said VanDyke's mother, Sabrina Kent. "You can have a kid come in with pimples on his face. Are you going to call that a distraction?"
VanDyke said she's had her large, natural hair all year long, but it only became an issue after the family complained about students teasing her about her hair.
"There have been bullies in the school," said Kent. "There have been people teasing her about her hair, and it seems to me that they're blaming her."
"I'm depressed about leaving my friends and people that I've known for a while, but I'd rather have that than the principals and administrators picking on me and saying that I should change my hair," said VanDyke.
"I'm going to fight for my daughter," Kent said. "If she wants her hair like that, she will keep her hair like that. There are people out there who may think that natural hair is not appropriate. She is beautiful the way she is."
School administrators responded to an email asking about the issue, but did not provide any answers to questions.
So basically, other kids were teasing her about her hair, the parents complained, and the kid is blamed for having the hair as opposed to the ones teasing?
Kanye West is at it again and this time it was MTV personality Sway who was at the receiving end of his rant.
Sway Calloway was interviewing Kanye West this morning on SiriusXM’s Shade 45 Hip-Hop/R&B when the G.O.O.D. Music rapper suddently went berserk on him.
During the interview Kanye West took a jab at Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacob, and others while ranting that he is the greatest artists of his generation.
Sway then asked him why don’t he use his money and empower himself and not rely on other big name brands and that’s when Kanye West fuse blew.
“How, Sway? You ain’t got the answers, man!” Kanye shouted. “I’ve been doing this more than you.”
Listen the full interview here.
Sway managed to calm Kanye West down with a few expletives. But Kanye West refuse to get off the floor and continued his rant.
Vybz Kartel was back before that judge yesterday to his second murder trial in court.
On Tuesday the prosecution introduced their highly anticipated star witness, Lamar Chow.
Chow was the man who allegedly escape the beating then authorities say claimed the life of Clive “Lizard” on August 16, 2011.
Under question from lead prosecutor Jeremy Taylor, Chow told the court about the incident leading up to the disappearance of his childhood friend Clive Williams.
Chow told the court that the whole ordeal was over a missing firearm. He said Vybz Kartel and the co-accused lower himself and Williams to on Swallowfield Avenue, Havendale, St. Andrew by assuring them that no harm would come to them.
Chow said Shawn “Storm” Campbell accompanied them in a taxi to the home where Vybz Kartel invited them inside and began questioning them about the missing firearm.
Chow said he and Williams told the men that they were planning to buy back the guns that went missing. However, despite their plea, he said Kahira Jones held on to Williams from behind and he ran into a backroom of the house but was cornered by Vybz Kartel and Shawn Storm.
Chow told the court that the two entertainers brought him back into the living room where he noticed Clive Williams was laying on the ground motionless and Kahira Jones has a building block in his hand.
He said he was in fear of his life and managed to from the men and ran. The witness said Vybz Kartel was him and was bitten by a dog that was in the yard.
By this time the jury was listening attentively to every detail of his testimony.
Lamar Chow said he then brought Vybz Kartel in a cab to the hospital before returning to the Waterford community in Portmore.
Chow said he was told by Shawn “Storm” Campbell that he should not tell anyone about what happened to Clive Williams. However, he said he told everyone who asked him the truth.
Williams body has never been found.
Charged along with Vybz Kartel are Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Kahira Jones, André St John, and Shane Williams.
His testimony will continues in court today.
