Starting at 11 p.m. Friday, police started pulling over and ticketing drivers who honked as they drove past protesters.
When the first car -- a taxi -- was pulled over, the protesters followed and shouted at police who then formed a blockade around the driver's cab.
The cab driver was then given a $144 ticket -- and protesters ended up handing him money afterwards to help pay for his fine.
"I'm really sorry this happened to you tonight, man," one protester said to the cab driver.
The protesters also encouraged the driver to go to court and challenge the ticket.
The driver, Ayad Agila

How absurd is that??
$144 little steep, don't you think? Yuh, that's worse than a seat belt ticket.
As long as it stays peaceful, I don't see the problem and punishing those that drive by and honk is just wrong.
