The guy was arrested and spent the night in jail after police discovered that he was charging his cell phone with a plug-in at a shelter in a public park. Does that electricity belong to the public? He was told that it was “theft of city utilities will not be tolerated during this bad economy.” The charge was a misdemeanor charge of theft of utilities. AP reports that he could not pay the $500 bond so that’s why he was jailed. Finally a good judge threw the case out, saying there was a lack of justification to make the arrest.
