Woman Charged With Assault For Tapping On The Shoulder Of A Texter

Posted Aug 1, 2011

Have you ever heard of someone that was charged with assault for tapping on a shoulder? Dale Fout (pictured above) and Brenda Godwin were sitting near each other during a screen.

Fout was texting and Godwin did not like it. So she tapped him on the shoulder and expressed her disapproval. Fout called the cops on her and claimed assault according to Godwin. Fout claims “She just happened to push my neck at the time my neck was in an awkward position. Kinda like having a little fender bender, and you get a little whiplash in your neck, you know.”

Pretty bizarre case. I’ll update this post when I find out more about what happens.
