Please arrest the journalists for offensive writing

There is an extra word here (from "Man with 16 guns arrested at Canadian border" on Yahoo! Canada News on August 15, 2011). Professional editors would deem the extra word to be him. The sentence above remains as-is on Yahoo!, but the same article on CBC News online got "fixed"

by removing was. Now there's a crap-ass sentence. If you're not going to remove the correct word then try this sentence on for size: RCMP arrested the man and later charged him with numerous offences and fined him $11,500. Click an image to enlarge it.
