The jury summons was sent to a "Lawrence Tureaud." But many of those waiting outside a Chicago courthouse to report for jury duty last week recognized the man as Mr. T, star of television's "The A-Team" and the movie "Rocky III."
Tureaud, 62, wasn't wearing any of his trademark gold chains, reports the Daily Herald, but he was still in Mr. T form as he waited to see if he was selected as a juror. "I pity the criminals today," Tureaud said, adding: "I've got to set an example. I understand my responsibility."
Although Mr. T wasn't selected as a juror, why should you follow his example and show up for jury duty?
