Fort Worth police can’t arrest man who called woman “fat”
... because he committed no actual crime, according to authorities.
The husband of a Fort Worth woman who was called "fat" by a worker handing out flyers for a local health club called the police to report the Tuesday, May 26 incident.
The unidentified woman was out in the neighborhood walking with her new baby, and refused to take a flyer from one of the two men handing them out; he followed her and made the rude and ill-advised comment.
Overzealous? Stupid? (Yep.) But not criminal, according to investigating officers.
