An OMG moment for courthouse deputies

You would think the deputies working the lobby security detail at the York County Judicial Center — manning the metal detector and repeating their mantra, “No we can’t hold your cellphone, you have to take it out of the building” — have seen it all.

Recently, they were treated, or subjected, to something completely different.

An elderly man’s metal hip replacement, of course, set off the metal detector.

Instead of complying with a deputy’s directive to stand on the red X to get wanded, the man instead immediately dropped his pants to show his surgical scar.

    I guess if I ever have to go to the Judicial Center I’ll just show them the card I carry proving I have a pacemaker. No one would want me to strip my upper torso!
