Lakeysha Beard from Oregon got arrested for using her cell phone. It sounds ridiculous, but wait until you read the whole story.
The woman was on an Amtrak train and started talking on her phone from the moment the train set off from Oakland, California. According to the news report, Beard was travelling in the “quiet cars” section of the train and was speaking too loudly on her cell. Not only did she disturb the other passengers with her loud voice, but she was doing it for 16 hours straight. Some of the passengers tried to talk her out of it, but she got into a fuss with them and continued talking non-stop except for when she made pauses in order to eat. Even the train staff made numerous announcements according to which the passengers weren’t allowed to use their phones. However, Beard ignored them, too.
So the police stepped in and arrested her two miles before the train’s final stop. And on top of all, Beard told the media she felt disrespected by the other passengers.
