Band faces felony charges for 101 Fwy stunt

LOS ANGELES Three members of a band accused of intentionally blocking the 101 Freeway in a publicity stunt are now facing felony charges.

The three members of Imperial Stars are charged with conspiracy to commit a public nuisance after they stopped their truck last month on the middle of the 101 Freeway near Sunset Boulevard, climbed on top of it and started singing.

The three were arrested, but traffic was tied up for hours while police had the vehicle towed.

If they're convicted the band members could face up to three years in prison.
