Screaming? No, Officer, I Was Singing


A driver in Montreal apparently got a little too carried away while grooving to a favorite song. 

Now he's going to court to defend his singing voice. When 38-year-old Taoufik Moalla got pulled over, officers asked if he'd been screaming, per the Montreal Gazette. No, Moalla replied, he'd merely been singing along to "Everybody Dance Now" by C+C Music Factory. 

The officers, unswayed, then issued a $118 ticket for "screaming in a public place." "I don't know if my voice was very bad and that's why I got the ticket, but I was very shocked," Moalla tells CTV. He's now waiting for a court date so he can explain to the judge what happened and presumably avoid the fine for disturbing the peace.
