Springfield, Massachusetts cops were called to the scene of a street disturbance at 2 a.m. Sunday. They found 24-year-old Karen Dziewit shouting obscenities at two male companions. She had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. When they tried to calm her down she became more irate and belligerent. She screamed at the cops that they did not know how to do their jobs. She demanded their badge numbers, telling them she was a law student and would get them canned.
When Dziewit refused to calm down, the cops busted her for disorderly conduct. At that point the drunken dimwit announced, “I’ve been recording this the whole time, my phone is in my purse, see you in court.”
When the cops checked her purse, they found her smart phone with the voice recorder switched on. They also found an empty half-pint bottle of Five O’clock Vodka. As a result she was charged with unlawful wiretapping and an open container violation on top of the disorderly conduct charge. After she was arraigned in court Monday and ordered to appear for a pretrial hearing July 8, she was released on her own recognizance.
The ‘law student’ apparently was unaware of Chap. 272, Sec. 99 of the Massachusetts General Law which prohibits anyone “to secretly hear, secretly record, or aid another to secretly hear or secretly record the contents of any wire or oral communication through the use of any intercepting device by any person other than a person given prior authority by all parties to such communication.”
When dimwit Dziewit told the cops they didn’t know how to do their jobs, demanded their badge numbers, and told them she would get them canned, she was practically begging them to throw her drunken ass in the can. I don’t know if she’s really a law student, but if she is, she’s not too swift.
