Judge: Honking fit was not free speech

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Go honk yourself. But if you do, don't expect any sympathy in court.

A judge in Washington state has ruled that leaning on a horn isn't a form of free speech.

Helen Immelt of Monore was convicted of a noise violation for blaring her car horn for 10 minutes straight.

She had parked in front of neighbor's house during the early morning hours on two different days and honked.

She was mad at the man for complaining about her chickens.

A judge has rejected Immelt's appeal, saying annoying horn honking isn't protected by the Constitution.
