Here's a doozie...

From Gulf News:

One held for being rude to policewoman
By Bassam Za'za', Staff Reporter
Dubai: A businesswoman who sat cross-legged inside the courtroom landed in trouble for calling the policewoman who asked her to sit properly 'stupid'.
The European woman who was attending her son's hearing at the Dubai Court of First Instance yesterday was taken to the nearest police station for defaming the policewoman.
The policewoman had noticed the European woman was sitting on a bench with her legs crossed while the hearing was in progress.
She asked the woman to sit properly but the latter retorted calling her stupid. The policewoman reported the incident to the police who sent a patrol to bring in the woman for questioning.
