Way up in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, a municipal court convicted 19-year-old Alexander Hart of disorderly conduct for planking in several locations around Manitowoc including Wal-Mart and Lowe's. In these photos we see him laying across the checkout conveyor belt at Wal-Mart, between two planks of wood at Lowe's and in a grocery aisle of freezers that contain frozen food. On Tuesday, Judge Steven Olson fined Alexander $303 for the planking spree. Something tells us that this is only the beginning of this guy's conviction record.
