Teen Faces Litter Charge for Bra Antenna

From http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...101201311.html

The Associated Press
Thursday, October 12, 2006; 6:57 PM

TOLEDO, Ohio -- A teenager who put her bra on a car antenna before it flew off and led to a highway accident will be charged with littering, a prosecutor said. Emily Davis, 17, of Bowling Green, told investigators she took her bra off while her friend was driving on Interstate 75.

James Campbell, who was driving behind the girls, said he swerved to avoid the bra and his car flipped several times. Campbell, 37, broke a vertebra in his neck during the Sept. 26 accident. His passenger, Jeff Long, 40, broke several ribs.

A State Highway Patrol crash report, obtained by The Blade, said that the girls told investigators that before the accident the men were motioning to them to lift up their shirts. Both men denied making the gestures.

Davis will be charged next week with misdemeanor littering, said Tim Atkins, a juvenile prosecutor in Wood County. Atkins said he'll meet with troopers before filing the charge.

The girl's friend, Tabitha Adams, 17, of Bowling Green, said she told Davis not to hang her bra outside because she knew it would fly away, according to the report.

Atkins said no other charges were expected.

With all due respect to Mr. Campbell and his passenger, I hope they have a quick and full recovery.

But...

Sorry, can't resist it. "Swerved to avoid a bra"

OK, it should never be a crime for females to remove their bras in public.

I guess it depends on the size of the bra. I think pics are necessary.

Depending on how "endowed" this girl is, this may have been a major obstacle.

At least he didn't hit the bra. The accident could have been so much worse.

Obviously, you've never been to Oregon in the summer.

I live in Toledo and saw this in the paper yesterday. That article also said that she took it off because it was frayed from her dog chewing on it.

Here's the longer article
