    Pa. woman cited for cursing at toilet

    SCRANTON, Pa. - Talk about a potty mouth. A Scranton woman who allegedly shouted profanities at her overflowing toilet within earshot of a neighbor was cited for disorderly conduct, authorities said.

    Dawn Herb could face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $300.

    "It doesn't make any sense. I was in my house. It's not like I was outside or drunk," Herb told The Times-Tribune of Scranton. "The toilet was overflowing and leaking down into the kitchen and I was yelling (for my daughter) to get the mop."

    Herb doesn't recall exactly what she said, but she admitted letting more than a few choice words fly near an open bathroom window Thursday night.

    Her next-door neighbor, a city police officer who was off-duty at the time, asked her to keep it down, police said. When she continued, the officer called police.

    Mary Catherine Roper, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union in Philadelphia, took issue with the citation.

    "You can't prosecute somebody for swearing at a cop or a toilet," she said.;_ylt=AtXLQ.9GVCfpRKXfv4kVV9 EsQE4F

    Probably a bit more to this story.
    Children within ear shot or something like that.
    It would be the same thing as sitting on your porch swearing up a storm.
    The story made it sound worse than it is by listing the maximum sentence for disorderly conduct.
    The odds are pretty good that she will get significantly less.

    Good thing there were no cops around when the Boars tied us on Sunday.

    I bet the stream of choice words that came out of my mouth could be heard two blocks over.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

    As long as she wasn't wearing baggy pants I'm fine with it.
