Was it the song choice or bad singing skills?
Taoufik Moalla was driving to get a water in Montreal while jamming out to C+C Music Factory’s hit ‘Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now).’ That’s when he noticed police lights behind him and soon he was pulled over.
Officers came to his window and asked if he screamed to which Moalla said ‘No, I was just singing.’ After checking his license and registration they returned with a ticket for screaming in public, a $149 fine!
According to Montreal bylaw “to cause disorder by screaming violates peace and tranquility” and doing so can be fined $50 to $1,000 on a first offense.
Moalla plans to contest the fine but that can take up to a year in court.
