Last Thursday, Fox News commentator Chris Wallace was interrupted in the middle of a radio interview with KFTK, a St. Louis talk radio station, when one of D.C.’s finest gave him some fair and balanced treatment for driving while using a handheld cell phone — a practice banned by the District of Columbia in 2004.
Huge hat tip to Mediaite (via DCist) for the audio below.
DCist’s Ben Freed adds: “Driving while holding a phone to one’s head is, of course, inadvisable, but it’s not actually an arrest-worthy offense. Simply failing to use a hands-free device comes with a $100 fine, not a trip to the pokey.”
Other sites have confirmed that Wallace was pulled over, but not arrested. Maybe he was just protesting a massive government conspiracy bent on installing a totalitarian regime, or something.
