It's OK to curse now
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - January 5, 2011 -- Cussing like a sailor won't get you charged anymore in Pennsylvania.
At least not by state troopers.
Pennsylvania state police have agreed to stop citing people for cursing.
The move settles a federal lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
The ACLU has defended people who've included those ticketed for cursing at an overflowing toilet and a swerving motorcyclist.
Such disorderly conduct citations could lead to fines and jail time.
