man was arrested because he tried to sell his children on Craigslist. The man put up an ad that said you could buy his kids and use them as "child slaves and footstools."
Someone saw the ad on Craigslist and called the police. They arrested the bad man. He told the police Hey, it was all just a joke, haha!
No, Mr. Bad Man, it is not a joke. Do you know why? Because every day lots of little kids get sold just like you were pretending to do with your kids! And they really do get sold to people who use them for slaves.
The police said that they believe he was joking but they were mad because they had to spend all that time making sure his children were safe when they could have been out catching even badder guys.
The man got a ticket and has to go to court. I think he should get a big giant bite on the leg from a police dog.
Just in case you didn't know, you are not supposed to sell your kids. You are supposed to love your children and protect them and not make jokes out of having bad stuff happen to them. Because that kind of bad stuff really does happen to kids.
PS: Here is a real story you can read about a real girl who was a slave ... in America.
