Couple Arrested For Dancing While Waiting For The NYC SubwaySubmitted by go213mph on Mon, 07/09/2012 - 09:56
(Fox) Dancing is a crime! That’s according to some New York City police officers who arrested a couple in their fifties because they were dancing while waiting for the subway. Reportedly, they had just gone to hear jazz at Lincoln Center. Afterward, in the subway station a musician was playing the steel band so the couple began doing the Charleston.
They say police officers approached them and said they weren’t allowed to dance on the platform. Officers asked for ID, but when the woman could only produce a credit card that had her picture and signature on it, the cops ordered the pair to go with them.
Things took a turn for the worse when the man took out his cell phone and began recording the whole incident. The couple said they were detained by police for “impeding the flow of traffic” and held for 23 hours. All the charges have been dropped but the couple plans to file a suit.
