Robert Bell of New Jersey is ready to carry the torch for freedom lovers everywhere. After leaving the Slaughtered Lamb Pub on West 4th Street one night last August, the 26-year-old financial services recruiter raised his middle finger for "one to two seconds" to a group cops who had just passed him, only another cop a few paces behind spotted Bell's bird and arrested him, DNA Info reports. They charged Bell with disorderly conduct for making an "obscene gesture" and causing public alarm and annoyance. He pleaded not guilty in October 2011 and the case was dismissed when the charging officer failed to show at the hearing. Now, Bell is suing the city, and he actually has some law on his side.
