Chicopee woman charged with recording arrest

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Police have charged a Chicopee woman with unlawful wiretapping, after accusing her of recording her own arrest.

The police accused Karen Dziewit of drinking outside a building at about 2:00 Sunday morning. She is also accused of yelling and disturbing residents and refusing to quiet down.

When the 24-year-old was about to be arrested, police say she activated the voice recording feature on her smart phone, hid it in her purse, and recorded her arrest. As police inventoried her belongings during booking, they found the phone with its recording feature on.

Dziewit was charged with unlawful wiretapping. She is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Springfield District Court.
