An Amtrak train made an unexpected stop Sunday, as a woman was escorted off for speaking loudly on her cell phone.
Lakeysha Beard, 39, was charged with disorderly conduct after she wouldn't stop talking on the 16-hour trip from Oakland, California, to Salem, Oregon. The train was stopped short of its destination.
Train operators called police due to passenger complaints, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Beard's car was designated a "quiet car."
Beard told Portland's KATU News that she felt "disrespected" by the incident.
