Obviously if a woman is at a house with two men she must be loose. She prolly told her baby's daddy about all the cool stuff at the house. After he was caught, she was later arrested for aiding him

Maybe I'm missing something, but how does that make her guilty? Wouldn't that prove her innocence, or were the cops just prejudiced against paraplegics?

recently a robbery had taken place. the police who were ivestigating the robbery found tire tracks leading to a house.
at the house there were three people: two men and a woman. niether of them knew how to drive. in the end,
they arrested the woman. why did they arrest the woman?


This may have been stated already, I have only read half of the first page, and not the whole thread. But he stated NEITHER of them knew how to drive. Neither is used typically as an eliminator of two items in a two item set, not an eliminator of three or more.

Thus the woman was arrested because she was the only one who knew how to drive and thus the only one capable of driving away from the robbery

The "tire tracks" were her wheelchair tracks. Tricky. It was a good concept for a riddle, playing on the natural tendency to assume tire tracks referred to car tires, but I think it needed a little better setup to make it satisfying and result in that "aha!" moment.

The riddle never specifies that their where any more than 3 people total at the house including cops SO if there are only three people and the cops plural new who to arrest they whoever the didn't arrest could have been the cops. The wheel chair works as well. And who said all cops knew how to drive some ride horses some ride bicycles and the tire marks could have just been extra info or the marks could have been going away from the house...
