    Being Annoying Now Illegal In Brighton

    POSTED: Friday, December 19, 2008
    UPDATED: 4:46 pm EST December 22, 2008
    BRIGHTON, Mich. -- Since when did being annoying become a crime? Since Brighton City Council approved a public conduct code Monday night, which includes fining someone up to $500 for being annoying.

    One section of the bill reads, "It shall be unlawful for a person to engage in a course of conduct or repeatedly commit acts that alarm or seriously annoy another person and that serve no legitimate purpose."

    The bill also states it's unlawful for anyone to insult, accost, molest or otherwise annoy any person in public.

    The ordinance was modeled after one in Royal Oak, where the Brighton police chief previously worked.

    The Livingston Daily Press & Argus reported that two council members expressed concerns for the language of the ordinance, but voted for it anyway.

    Brighton officials said the ordinance would be subjective and the call will be made by police officers.

    The amended ordinance takes effect Jan. 17, 2009.

    Michigan is annoying.

    Weather-wise, I'd agree with you this month. Our Christmas Eve services are in jeopardy of being canceled if we get what is forecast for the next 24. Other than the weather, what annoys you about Michigan?

    MI and I are not getting along right now. I have never been stuck in my Jeep, in the snow. Yesterday I was stuck twice, had to charge the battery on one suburban, jump start the plow truck twice, got stuck twice in the plow truck, and we're supposed to get another 10 inches tonight. I feel like I live in a snowglobe. Oh ya, and the job market sucks. So...can we sue MI for being annoying? Maybe the weatherman?

    Michigan itself is annoying, which is why we are presently considering leaving this dead state and relocating west.
