COURT RULES YOU CAN'T BE ARRESTED JUST BECAUSE YOU FLIP OFF A COP

A federal appeals court has ruled that a police officer cannot pull you over and arrest you just because you gave him the finger. The ruling comes after John Swartz and his wife sued two police officers after Swartz was arrested for flipping off an officer who was using a radar gun at an intersection in St. Johnsonville, New York. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled that the "ancient gesture of insult is not the basis for a reasonable suspicion of a traffic violation or impending criminal activity."
