Yahoo News, SCRANTON, PA…
A woman who was allegedly shouting obscenities at her overflowing toilet loud enough for her neighbor to hear was cited for disorderly conduct. She could be fined up to $300 and serve up to 90 days in jail.
(Insert potty mouth joke here.)
“It doesn’t make any sense. I was in my house. It’s not like I was outside or drunk,” Herb told The Times-Tribune of Scranton. “The toilet was overflowing and leaking down into the kitchen and I was yelling (for my daughter) to get the mop.”
The woman doesn’t remember WHAT she said, but admits she knows it wasn’t clean.
Mary Catherine Roper, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union in Philadelphia, took issue with the citation.
“You can’t prosecute somebody for swearing at a cop or a toilet,” she said.
Question: Have you ever been overheard for using choice words you later regreted?
