HOW DO YOU GET YOUR BAND SOME PUBLICITY? AND A FEW POLICE CITATIONS.

A SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TRAFFIC JAM TODAY WAS NO ACCIDENT.

A VAN TURNED SIDEWAYS ACROSS THREE LANES OF TRAFFIC WAS DONE ON PURPOSE.

A HIP-HOP BAND FROM ORANGE COUNTY PARKED ACROSS THE LANES OF THE 101 FREEWAY, NEAR SUNSET BOULEVARD, AND PERFORMED ON TOP OF THE TRUCK.

THEY HAD A CAPTIVE AUDIENCE, AS TRAFFIC BACKED UP FOR MORE THAN A MILE.

WHEN POLICE ARRIVED THE TRUCK WAS TOWED AWAY AND THE BAND MEMBERS WERE ARRESTED.

NOW THEY HAVE TO "FACE THE MUSIC," AFTER BEING CHARGED WITH SUSPICION OF UNLAWFUL ASSEMBLY.

MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING; THE GROUP "IMPERIAL STARS" HAS A SONG CALLED "TRAFFIC JAM 101."
