$10 Fine Dropped For Swearing Cockatoo
WARWICK, R.I., (UPI) — A Rhode Island woman whose pet cockatoo was accused of repeatedly using profanity directed toward a next door neighbor won’t have to pay a fine, police said.
Lynn Taylor of Warwick fought the $10 noise citation last year in municipal court after her neighbor complained about the bird’s foul language and appealed the case to Providence Superior Court, WJAR-TV, Providence, reported Wednesday.
Police said the city decided to drop the case rather than continue to expend city resources attempting to enforce a $10 fine.
