Fines for being annoying

BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) - December 22, 2008

The City Council has approved an ordinance that allows police to ticket anyone who is annoying in public.

Forbidden annoying behavior can be by word of mouth, sign or motions.

A local paper reports the pest ban takes effect Jan. 2.

A city attorney says officials will review the annoying cases that involve potential freedom of speech issues.
