Like a MySpace cowboy, the online community that's skyrocketed to popularity, isn't just for teens and aspiring rockers. It can also be a digital doughnut hut for police officers.

One Lexington police officer even described himself in his MySpace profile by saying: "I love to lock a mother f----- up ...," according to the report.

That's certainly shooting from the hip.
