Submission + - Man Arrested for Cursing in Public Park (baynews9.com)

Anml4ixoye writes: "While visiting Sarasota, FL, you could be locked up for breaking the law if you are theft, assault, or any of the other normal offenses. You can also be locked up for "prohibitions against gambling boats, visiting a 'house of ill fame' and 'being in a public place in a state of nudity or in a dress not belonging to such person's sex.'" These so-called "Offenses Against Public Morals" extend to what you can say in a public place. Just ask Christopher Haudt who had charges brought against him for swearing near a minor during a public park's opening."
