21st Century Crime

Engadget reports a “crime” that would happily sit within the pages of 1984.

Warronnica Harris, a college student in Florida, definitely made a mistake when she answered a phone call from her mom while watching the opening credits to Catwoman at a local theater (though going to see that movie in the first place was probably her first mistake). An irritated police officer in the theater noticed her on the phone, shined a flashlight in her eyes, then pushed Harris and her boyfriend into the lobby where he doused them with pepper spray and arrested them for disorderly conduct, thus fulfilling the secret revenge fantasies of irate moviegoers everywhere.

Crikey.
