  • HOUSTON, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man arrested for cursing in front of police has filed a lawsuit saying his right to free speech was violated.

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspaper reported Thursday that Richard Pustovrh was arguing with his employers in September 2012 and they called the police. Pustovrh lives in Houston, 30 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.

    A complaint says Pustovrh used an obscenity to voice his frustration after a Canonsburg police officer warned him not to.

    He was handcuffed and later found guilty of disorderly conduct and obscene language. The obscene-language charge was withdrawn when he appealed.
