The one thing you don't want to do in Los Angeles is mess with the traffic. Imperial Stars, a country music band, decided to park its truck diagonally across three lanes of southbound traffic on the 101 freeway, hop out and throw a surprise concert. The three band members got on top of their truck and performed a song called "Traffic Jam 101." The three musicians were arrested and are facing misdemeanor conspiracy charges. All three musicians were released from Los Angeles County Jail after each posting $10,000 bail. The concert caused a big traffic jam and many people reported that it added an hour to their commute.
The criminal act of conspiracy involves an agreement between two or more persons to break the law at some time in the future. There isn't a limit on the number of people participating in the conspiracy, and others can join in the act later and still incur joint liability and conspiracy. The actual crime does not have to be completed in order to face a conspiracy charge, but there must be proof that there was intention to break the law.
