Va. firefighter alleges harassment

By Washington Post editors

A Spotsylvania County volunteer firefighter has been arrested following allegations that he and another firefighter taunted and inappropriately touched a female co-worker, NBC 4 reports.

Steven Tyler Perry, 20, was arrested Saturday and charged with one felony county of custodial indecent liberties. The other volunteer firefighter is under 18 and has not been charged.

The Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Department said a 17-year-old female victim told authorities that the incident happened in May whole she was on duty. She said she was sleeping in her bunk when the two men called her downstairs, saying they needed her help with the hose. Once she got downstairs, the 17-year-old said she discovered they wanted her to participate in a stripping game. When she refused, they began to taunt her, she told officials.

The men then turned the hose on her and carried her into a shower stall, she said. One of the men tried to touch her, she told authorities.

If only WaPo used their proof-readers, assuming y'all have them... "felony county", "in May whole she was on duty". A lot of problems for such a short article...

Spellchecker is not always your friend...

How did they correct one spelling error and leave in another? It takes a quick minute to proofread your stuff. You can't be in that much of a rush to print 'this' story to not check for grammatical errors (I will assume that the writer meant 'while' instead of 'whole').
