POCATELLO, Idaho -- An eastern Idaho judge who lost patience with the disruptive behavior of a defendant ordered court officials to tape the man's mouth shut with duct tape during a court hearing.

The unusual move was ordered by 6th District Judge Peter D. McDermott during a probation violation hearing for Nicklas Frasure, 23.

Judge Taking Names, Seeking To Ban Odd Ones

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic -- "Dummy Ruiz?" ''Dear Pineapple?"

A judge says such names should be a no-no in this Caribbean country where parents also have been known to model their children's identities after car brands and cartoon characters.

Mazda Altagracia, Toshiba Fidelina, Seno Jimenez (Breast Jimenez), Querida Pina (Dear Pineapple), Tonton Ruiz (Dummy Ruiz) and Querido Familia Perez (Dear Family Perez) are among the unique names listed in the nation's civil registry.
