... not just in movie theaters anymore. I think she should have walked to her final destination, might help her lose a few hundred pounds.
In an epic incident of the pot calling the kettle rude, a Tigard, Oregon woman said she felt "disrespected" after police escorted her from an Amtrak train mostly because she refused to get off her cellphone — for 16 hours.
Lakeysha Beard was charged with disorderly conduct after police said she got into a verbal altercation with passengers on the train. The other passengers complained she refused to put down her cellphone, even after train staff made repeated announcements for passengers to not use cellphones, according to police.
When a passenger confronted her about her loud talking, police said Beard got aggressive. She had reportedly been talking non-stop on the phone since getting on the train in Oakland, Calif.
Beard was taken into custody until a family member could come and pick her up.
Beard's rudeness wasn't accommodated by some unknown super phone, but by Amtrak's handy cellphone charging stations.
In a follow-up interview with KATU.com, Beard confirmed she was blathering away on her mobile device, but that "she didn't understand why she had to be escorted off the train."
Like many communal commuter-based agencies, Amtrak does have a policy against obnoxious blathering, specifically in "quiet cars" like the one Beard was annoying her fellow passengers in, again, for 16 hours.
