The local mugshot newspaper Just Busted was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism today, for what was described by the Pulitzer committee as “fearless journalism about bong and dimebag-related arrests.”

“Few other publications are brave enough to put photos of these weed-smoking teenagers alongside mugshots of wife-beaters, rapists and armed robbers,” said the statement from the Pulitzer committee.

Just Busted was also commended for its in-depth coverage of the public menace of people driving on recently expired licenses.
