Scratching ear is a crime in Hoboken!
Cops are ticketing the wrong people
“I was driving on Newark Street, heading out of Hoboken when I was pulled over by the police. Two officers approached my car and told me that I was pulled over because I was talking on the phone. I looked at them as if they had 3 heads and replied that I had been scratching my ear and that my phone was in my knapsack. I offered to show them my phone with the call logs (the last call had been made 3 hours prior), but they didn’t listen and wrote me a summons.
Clearly I am going to go to court over this, along with my cell phone records, but I am LIVID that I was issued a ticket for scratching my ear! When did that become a crime? I returned to Hoboken several hours later and went to the police station, where three or four officers were at or around the desk. When I asked them about it, they told me they could not help me and I had to go to court. This is insane.“
What do you think about their complaint?
