D.C. Cops Bust Candy Bar Chewer

Stephanie Willett was held in police custody for three hours because she kept chewing a candy bar (instead of swallowing it or spitting it out) after entering a subway station in Washington D.C. According to the AP news story, she was warned to finish the candy bar before entering the station. She nodded to the officer who warned her, popped the last bit into her mouth, threw the wrapper into a trash can, and they proceeded into the station to catch her train. The transit officer then followed her into the station and arrested her. Quote of the day: "If she had stopped eating, it would have been the end of it" -Transit Police Chief Polly Hanson
