Woman arrested for chewing in Washington DC Metro station
You can't eat and ride in the nation's capital. A Maryland woman says a transit officer in Washington DC handcuffed and held her for three hours after she finished a candy bar at a Metro station. Stephanie Willett tells The Washington Post she was heading into a station while eating a PayDay bar when a transit officer told her to finish it before entering. They both agree that she put the last bit in her mouth -- but she says the officer followed her inside the station. After she made a comment, Willett says the officer searched, handcuffed and arrested her. Willett was released several hours later after paying a ten-dollar fine. A Metro spokeswoman says the woman was arrested for ignoring a warning.
