Woman arrested for 16 hour phone call

A US woman has been arrested for speaking loudly on her mobile phone for 16 hours while travelling in a train's quiet carriage.

Lakeysha Beard, 39, repeatedly ignored requests to be quiet during the journey between Oakland, California, and Portland, Oregon, according to other passengers.

Train staff eventually asked her to stop using her phone which reportedly led to a "verbal altercation" and police being called.

The train was called to a halt at a crossing just outside Salem, Oregon, where police boarded to remove Ms Beard. She has now been charged with disorderly conduct.

Speaking after the incident to Portland's KATU News, Ms Beard said she felt "disrespected" by the incident.

She admitted to talking on her phone, but saw no reason why she should have been escorted from the train.
