The Washington Post has an article today about a woman who was arrested in a DC metro station for a loud cellphone conversation. To make the story even more strange, the woman was 5-months pregnant! bq. The police officer told Aaron, who is five months pregnant, to lower her voice. She told the officer he had no right to tell her how to speak into her cell phone... He handcuffed the 23-year-old woman, called for backup and took her to a cell where she was held for three hours before being released to her aunt. She was charged with two misdemeanors: "disorderly manner that disturbed the public peace" and resisting arrest. The story is leading on page A01 and is sure to set off waves in free speech advocate circles.
