Susan Finkelstein: Victim of circumstance, or the devil? Bensalem, Pa., cops said she flaunted her feminine wares to procure World Series tickets. Finkelstein says she was “just flirting,” with an undercover policeman, and had no plan to offer sex for tickets. Baseball fans are lining up for and against her (a SPORTSBYBROOKS poll ran overwhelmingly on the side of letting her go without charges).
Finkelstein is now speaking out, telling CBS NEWS that she was upset with what she felt was the arresting officers’ cavalier attitude. “They arrested me; put me in the back of the squad car. In my opinion they seemed amused by the whole thing,” she said today. Her lawyer, William Brennan, says that arresting officers “chained her to a table like a dog.”
