How Many Al Gores Are There, Anyway?

From Reuters: Al Gore's son busted for drugs in hybrid car

I love the Reuters coverage of this story.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The 24-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested for drug possession on Wednesday after he was stopped for speeding in his hybrid Toyota Prius…

Al Gore III… was driving his environmentally friendly car at about 100 miles per hour on a freeway south of Los Angeles when he was pulled over by an Orange County sheriff's deputy at about 2:15 a.m.
The deputy smelled marijuana, and a search of Gore's car revealed a small amount of the illegal drug along with Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall, all stored in recycled, biodegradable packaging.

A spokesperson for the sheriff's office confirmed that Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and driving without polluting the environment.

Gore quickly made bail, and at 2pm the sheriff's department released him and no harmful greenhouse gases. He will receive a notice of a court date, printed on paper made from trees sourced from sustainable forests, within thirty days.
