Failure to Move

What happens in downtown Providence, stays in downtown Providence:
..Bret Lockett was arrested this morning between the hours of 1-4 a.m. for failure to move and disorderly conduct outside of a club in downtown Providence, according to the Providence Police Department.

Lockett was arrested and released and is expected to appear in court at a later date to answer to the charges...
Not that I want to turn this blog into a series of "true confessions", but as a young man I was guilty a time or two for "failure to move" near a club or place of dancing.

Failing to move rhythmically that is.

Have a good weekend everyone.

I gather they wanted him to "leave?" Interesting words they chose to use... LOL

Failure to move? Seriously? Oh man.

Clever and right between the eyes, SD! If "failure to move" was truly a crime, our jails would be even more full than usual. But, I am sure the female population would be thrilled to have most of male America behind bars! Thanks for throwing this one up! EFH

Too funny! I keep trying to figure out what else to say, but I can't. I'm speechless. ;)

What does that even mean? My husband should get arrested for failure to move because his dancing skills are not so pretty!

Slamdunk:
Obviously NOT injured enough to stay away from those "clubs", hmm?
(offensive linemen - take note)

A simple (costly) citation and a drive downtown SHOULD have sufficed...let him find his OWN way back to the club (and ride home).

Have yourselves a good weekend.

Isn't that a less fancy way of saying "loitering"?

Audrey Allure said...

Lt said...

Rachel Cotterill said...

What do they really mean by "failure to move"? Failure to move on when asked, or failure to move at all due to being completely paralytic...?

Hilary said...

Too funny.. thanks for the laugh. :)

Diane said...

Yeah..... I am challenged in that way too. No rhythm for this girl. :O)

Dan said...

I've been guilty of failure to move - in any way associated with coordination.

I have to wonder what the formal definition of "failure to move" really is.

Opus #6 said...

LOL! I still don't understand the news story. Was the young man passed out? And were you too shy to dance?

Have a great weekend.

I'm failing to move right now. I am moving my tea cup to my mouth to drink and barley moving my fingers to type. But still....I am still :-)

marisworld said...

I know a few men who commited that crime in their youth..including my other half.
Very funny post, thanks for the smile :)

Abigail said...

This made me smile!

Kristin said...

Ah ha ha. You're too funny. I think my hubs has been guilty of that as well. HA!

terri said...

I'm sure your actions (or lack of) didn't result in an arrest! :-)

carma said...

If you are ever unfortunate enough to see a video of me bellydancing you will see that I am guilty of same :D May as well call the cops on myself..

ladyfi said...

Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.

Sandra said...

Failure to move? Huh...now I've heard it all.

Oh, and thanks for the laugh about the dancing!

kathryn said...

Wow. Why am I thinking that "failure to move" is a very old, yet often-used fallback for the Providence police?

I mean, technically, you could say, "Move over here, bud" and if he didn't comply, BOOM! You're in the slammer!
