Man Forced by Court to Walk While He Whistles

A lot of us like to whistles, but Robert "The Whistler" Smith of Portland loves it perhaps a little too much. He's been cited for disorderly conduct for whistling too loudly in one spot. But how do you keep a man from whistling? The Court has found a way:

Over the past year, in fact, Smith has been summonsed, arrested and taken to court for disorderly conduct for "loud whistling."

Smith is now free to whistle, but only under one unusual condition: He has to keep walking while he whistles. The requirement that he keep moving was mutually agreed upon by Smith and the city in court so he doesn't annoy businesses and passers-by in any one area.

Randy Billings of the Portland Press Herald has the story, and yes, also the video clip of The Whistler whistling: Link - Thanks Tiffany!
