NYDailyNews.com reports that Kenneth Perry, a veteran criminal defense lawyer, was arrested by the NYPD when he tried to stop them from questioning a client. Things apparently became heated and Perry is now accused of pushing a detective - a claim he denies.

However, the 61-year-old was charged with harassment, obstructing government administration and resisting arrest, and brought into custody.

Far from bemoaning his bad luck or wondering if this would ruin his career, Perry saw this as a marketing opportunity. In a display of rugged American individualism and entrepreneurship that would have American luminaries such as Herbert Hoover and Henry Ford smiling from the public gallery in the sky, Perry went and handed out all of his business cards to fellow inmates.

Folklaw wonders whether Perry's actions might result in a whole new approach to business development from American lawyers.
