Nothing says America like stealing from a shopping mall novelty store. Perhaps coach Gary Pinkel will keep that in mind when he's trying to decide whether or not to suspend Jarrell Harrison from the Missouri football team.

Harrison, a senior who started eight games at safety last season for the Tigers, was nabbed last Friday before the holiday weekend shoplifting from a Spencer's in Columbia. The chain store bills itself as "the ultimate shop for edgy, humorous, collectible, novelty and gag gifts."

The item Harrison is accused of walking off with is still unidentified but our colleagues at the Kansas City Pitch  take the words right out of our mouths when they wonder if the defensive back, "is into light bondage or leaving fake dog poo around the locker room."

(Personally, though, we suspect he was after the remote controlled fart machine.)
