Australia Tourist Charged with Assault for Shushing Texas Movie Phone-Talker

A former Australian city councillor has been charged with assault for shushing a woman who wouldn’t stop talking on her phone at a screening of Brokeback Mountain. Pauline Clayton was on holidays in Texas, catching the movie in Texas cinema, when the woman’s phone rang. After she ignored a shushing gesture, Clayton touched her lightly on the shoulder. After Clayton touched her a second time, the woman went berserk, screamed obscenities, and got two cops and swore out an assault complaint — via Boing Boing
