Orange County Crap-Hop Band ‘Imperial Stars’ Charged With Felony For Blocking Freeway

Remember the band of idiots from Orange County who blocked rush hour traffic so they could play their crappy single on the 101 freeway? Here’s a reminder. Anyway, they just got hit with felony conspiracy charges for their guerilla marketing scheme media whoredom.

“This was not a matter involving free speech or lawful protest,” said LA County District Attorney Steve Cooley. “This was a well-orchestrated commercial stunt perpetrated by these defendants and their accomplices with no concern for the lives or well-being of thousands of innocent victims who were caught up in the prank. I hope this filing sends a strong message of deterrence. This type of dangerous behavior will not be tolerated.”

No word on if Cooley will seek to substitute prison time for a Singapore-style public caning. We here at FBLA fully support the endeavor.
