    WOODBURY, N.Y. — A waiter who shocked guests at a Jewish wedding by playing a recording of a crowd chanting in Arabic has pleaded not guilty to felony harassment.

    Stephen Buttafuoco, 23, said he was playing the recording for a co-worker and was unaware it was being amplified over a sound system at the Woodbury Jewish Center during the Jan. 4 wedding, his lawyer Tom Spreer said.

    Another inflammatory, divisive story brought to you by Fox News.

    Has the waiter been sent to Egypt in extraordinary rendition for a terrorist act?

    It does sound like a stunt he would approve of.

    What's amazing to me is that the guy was charged with felony harassment.

    I can't believe that the police arrested some for playing the wrong music.

    What's next?

    A person getting arrested for mistakenly playing jazz music at a country and western bar??

    I doubt it was a simple mistake. It sounds to me like deliberate harassment.

    Pretty stupid, imo. Though anyone that would hire the guy after this would have to be even stupider.

    Not a fan of the presumption of innocence?
