Lauren Danielle Tharp, 20, told The Red & Black she was stopped early Saturday morning simply for being â€œunlucky.â€â€œMe and my boyfriend were going into Little Italy,â€ she said. â€œWe didnâ€™t do anything. [The arresting officers] were just like, â€˜You two, stop.â€™ I didnâ€™t stumble, didnâ€™t fall. I didnâ€™t even know what I got arrested for until about five hours later.â€ The ACC police report listed the reason for the stop as Tharp â€œstaggering on the sidewalk.â€
Be careful, over zealous college towns. Never forget who brings those disposable dollars to your city. Keep f*cking with the ‘staggering drunks’ and they’ll take their staggering elsewhere.
