Talk During the Movie, Get Pepper-Sprayed

Seems fair to me. Details vary depending upon who you talk to, but a police officer pepper-sprayed a woman who answered and talked on her cell phone during Catwoman:

“The man turned and asked the officer why he was making them leave,” Gray said, “and the cop just maced him in the face. They weren’t yelling or touching him. The man bent over and the girl asked why he maced her boyfriend. Then the cop maced her, and she dropped her soda.”

Seems fair to me. Perhaps they should install automated, sound-sensing pepper-spray cannons throughout the theatre. Of course, according to the critics, you deserve to get your ass pepper-sprayed for just for choosing to see Catwoman.

This story comes from the St. Petersburg Times. I looked it up, and it turns out St. Petersburg is in Florida (not Russia), which comes as no surprise. Can that state ever catch a break?


  1. All I can say is that if I got a “family emergency” call during a movie, I’d get up and leave the theatre pretty quickly.

  2. That happened yesterday during Spidey-2. A man’s phone must’ve been set to vibrate because all of a sudden he jumped up, head low like a soldier under fire and hustled out of the theatre to talk.

    I was in shock of how considerate he was.
