HEADLINE: “Man charged, accused of dropping F-bombs”
GALVESTON – Diners at a seawall eatery were treated to a short salvo of vulgar language when a Jamaica, N.Y., man allegedly berated his female companion with a pair of F-bombs uttered within earshot of a police officer and restaurant manager, authorities said Tuesday.
A Galveston officer was enjoying an early dinner at 4:15 p.m. Monday at Salsa’s Mexican and Seafood Restaurant, 4604 Seawall Blvd., when he overheard a conversation between a man and a woman, said Lt. D.J. Alvarez, a Galveston Police Department spokesman.
“The man said to the female, ‘I can’t believe you’re so f—— stupid,'” Alvarez said, who was reading from a police report of the incident made public Tuesday. “‘What the f— were you thinking?'”
“The manager was offended by the curse words,” Alvarez said. “And the man was arrested when the manager came forward to complain about the breach of peace.”

Apparently the man was charged with a misdemeanor, disorderly conduct.
Now. I can think of some verbage that has breached my peace lately and I didn’t just overhear it sitting in a restaurant either. But… if that kind of conversation between a couple (in public) can get you arrested, I’m in deep doo-doo. I better make sure I’ve got a stash ‘o’ cash handy here, at all times, to make my bond.
