Woman Arrested Talking Loudly On Phone, As if it isn’t hard enough to get to sleep on overnight journeys, one group of unlucky passengers shared a carriage with a woman who talked loudly on her mobile phone for 16 hours. In the end she was arrested.

Lakeysha Beard of Tigard, Oregon, was charged with disorderly conduct after police were called by Amtrak staff following continued complaints from passengers.

Police said the 39-year-old became aggressive and was involved in a ‘verbal altercation’ when asked to be quiet during the journey from Oakland, California to Salem, Oregon.

Fellow travellers said Ms Beard refused to put the phone down even after staff made repeated announcements for passengers to not use mobile phones.  Ms Beard told Portland’s KATU News that she felt ‘disrespected’ by the incident.
