Cop gives driver $117 ticket for singing
The cop asked him: "Did you scream loudly?" The driver replied: "No, I was just listening to my favorite song." Montreal police gave a motorist a $117 ticket after pulling him over in late September.

Is there something that forbids that, or did I really bother anyone?" He put it in Canadian terms: "Imagine if the [Montreal] Canadiens won a game," Moalla told CTV Montreal. "All the fans are going to scream out of their cars. They're going to sing. Are you going to give them all tickets?"..Read more
