Wal-Mart Fireman F***s With Hurricane Edouard

by | 17th, August 2008

“CAN you believe this? He’s f*cking arresting me for saying f**k!”

Says the report – and it’s the tangential link of the day:

As Tropical Storm Edouard closed in on the Texas Gulf Coast last week, a storm of a different kind was brewing inside the sporting goods section of a Wal-Mart store in La Marque. It started with the F-word.

(Edouard. Even the hurricanes want to be different.) Kathryn “Kristi” Fridge hears the weather warnings. Before retreating to live in hollowed out cow until the storm passes, this Texan makes a last-minute stop at a Wal-Mart with her mother and 2-year-old daughter.

She has need of batteries. But there are none. “I was like, ‘Dang.’ I looked at my mom and said, ‘They’re all f*c*ing gone.”

Within earshot is a Capt. Alfred Decker, the La Marque assistant fire marshal. He is clad in the panoply of the fire department.

“He said, ‘You need to watch your mouth,’ ” Fridge said. “I was like, ‘Oh, OK. Sorry?'” she said.

She walks away. He orders her to return. He then handcufffs her.

La Marque Fire Chief Todd Zacherl says: “She cussed him, she cussed everybody. By now, we have a huge group of people looking.”

Fridge emphatically denied that, saying while she did curse in casual conversation with her mother, she never cursed at Decker, even during their confrontation. Her mother agreed.

She admits, however, to swearing when Decker is leading her away: “Can you believe this? He’s *ucking arresting me for saying f**k!”

Says Fridge: “When I got outside, I saw he was a fire marshal — I saw his car. I said, ‘You’re not even a cop!’ He said, ‘I can do this’.”

He hands her a ticket for disorderly conduct. She is asked to spell out her name: She does so.

“F for ****…”

Any more of this and it’ll be as bad as England
