Hey, c’mon, we’ve all tried this: Friday afternoon, Sherin Brown, 23, was walking along Fulton Street when a truck clipped a light pole
near South Portland, knocking it over. Luckily for Brown, she skipped out of the way of the falling pole… and then slipped herself beneath it. Unluckily for Brown, the whole little pas de deux was caught on surveillance video, so after she was treated for her imaginary injuries at Brooklyn Hospital, she was charged with falsely reporting an emergency, a misdemeanor. Which, c’mon, we’ve all done it, right?
