An Australian woman charged with assault after trying to shush and American moviegoer who was on a mobile phone has been fined $176.
Pauline Clayton was in Texas on holidays when she decided to catch Australian
actor Heath Ledger's movie Brockback Mountain last week.
Halfway through the picture, a woman film patron took a mobile phone call, and began talking.
Annoyed by the disruption, Ms Clayton, a former Sunshine Coast councillor, put her finger to her mouth, signalling for the woman to shush, then touched her on the shoulder twice.
The other woman then stood up and began shouting expletives at Ms Clayton before storming out of the cinema.
Police arrived and escorted Ms Clayton from the theatre.
The maligned woman told officers Ms Clayton "had been invading her private space" and accused the Australian of assault.
Police susequently arrested Ms Clayton and charged her with assault. Ms Clayton was fined $176.
what a hoot!!! I reckon the chick on the mobile should have been counter-sued for noise polution!!
