Man cited for riding camel during Sundance fest
PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Police cited a man for riding a camel and obstructing traffic in Park City, Utah, as attendees of the Sundance Film Festival packed the town.
Jason Andreozzi was promoting a movie he directed that didn't make it into the festival lineup.
Park City police cited Andreozzi for riding the camel along Park Avenue and Main Street on Friday afternoon. Police say they also gave him a warning about distributing flyers.
Andreozzi says he wasn't impeding traffic while riding the camel, and he says he wasn't handing out flyers.
Andreozzi's film looks at Egypt during the Arab Spring, and he says he chose a camel because people identify the animal with the country.
The Sundance Film Festival began last Thursday and continues through Jan. 27.
