Douchebag sues over right to call cop a douchebag

I really wish the Aspen Times would get a copy editor.  It’s not “douche bag”, it’s “douchebag”.  Douchebag appears five times as much as douche bag on the Intarwebs, despite all efforts on behalf of this case (29,600 approximately) to make douche bag the common spelling.  But I digress.

Here’s a brief rundown of the case: douchebag* decides to get in the way of a cop responding to a call, calls the cop a douchebag.  Cop gets butthurt, arrests douchebag for disorderly conduct.  Which may not be out of line, except that a perfectly good charge of obstructing a police officer could have been used and then the douchebag wouldn’t have been able to sue claiming his first amendment rights were violated.  The oddest part of this whole mess is the lawyer, though – I thought she’d either be a sleazy criminal defense attorney who’s used to pulling every trick in the book to get her clients off, or an ACLU shill, but she’s…a real estate lawyer.  Where the FUCK does that fit into all this?

*who may also be the town drunk – note that he was on probation when this event occurred, and wasn’t bright enough to realize that doing this sort of thing might attract unwanted attention.
