Choc Horror!

‘NEW York mayor Michael Bloomberg has some way to go to ensure the Big Apple’s position as the most illiberal city in the United States.

In Washington DC, 45-year-old Stephanie Willett was handcuffed and arrested…for eating a chocolate bar inside a Metro station.

Eating and drinking is banned on the Metro system in the capital and the officer had warned Willett to finish the bar before entering the station.

Willett said she put the last piece in her mouth and threw the wrapper away.

The officer continued to follow her into the station and Willett was searched, handcuffed and arrested for chewing after passing through the fare gates.

She was only released several hours later after paying a $10 fine.’
