Man ARRESTED after argument with Police over novelty shirt

Man Wearing Novelty T-Shirt Arrested For Refusing To Leave South Carolina Park | The Smoking Gun

Quote:
A man wearing a novelty t-shirt with a sexually charged message was arrested Saturday after refusing a police order to leave a South Carolina park due to “the shirt with that phrase on it,” according to investigators.

Michael Miller, 50, was spotted “with a shirt that read ‘I May Not Be Mr. Right But I’ll F*** You ‘Til He Shows Up,’” according to a Spartanburg Department of Public Safety report.
...
When cops approached Miller and told him that he was not allowed to wear the shirt in Spartanburg’s Barnet Park, he reportedly became irate and “said he would wear the shirt any ****ing where he wanted to.”

Miller was then issued a trespass warning “from Barnet Park during the Rock the Denim event,” a yearly concert that is devoted to raising awareness of sexual violence against women.

After refusing to leave the park, Miller--who cursed at and gave the finger to cops--was busted for disorderly conduct. He was released from custody Saturday evening after posting a $262 bond.

Kinda like those t-shirts you can get on Bourbon Street in NOLA. If you're into that kinda crap, thats cool, but theres a time and place to wear that and typically, a public place is poor judgment.

Kinda immediately and matter of factly, shows your character.

The report should have added the following-" Mr. Miller, while sporting a sweet mullet, yelled " I pay ur salaree pig. I pay ur salaree", as he was being arrested.

Bad taste indeed and poor judgement of course, but illegal?

As far as I know stupid has not yet been outlawed?

Yet people are up in arms over a kid getting in trouble over an NRA shirt.

FTR, the idea of a kid being told to wear that to school is stupid and while that dude's shirt is funny, it's also dumb to purposefully rock it at the event he was attending.

However, they should be able to wear those shirts in their respective environments.

Why are people so scared of the F word? If a kid is capable of reading it, then why does it matter?

Not illegal. But his actions after the fact I guess were deemed illegal. He brought attention to himself and then handled it poorly.

The issue to begin with is why he was confronted about it.

Article fails to mention that the concert was an event requiring paid admission. I'm no lawyer but I would think the event promoters would have the right to set their rules and dismiss anyone who broke the rules. He was arrested for trespassing or failing to leave not for wearing a shirt.

Too many people make that mistake.

Funny enough, too many people say what you just said.

And he wasn't doing anything illegal. Hence. If the whole thing would not have happened if the cops would have followed the law. Nothing illegal. So why approach. Same with the kid and the tshirt. And guy with gun in Texas.

Nothing illegal. And people standing up for rights and get arrested because of how the incident played out.
