Maine whistler agrees not to stand still


UPI News Service, 02/25/2013 

A Maine man whose whistling led to a disorderly conduct charge agreed in court to pursue his musical passion only while on the move.

Portland, Maine, city officials said they received multiple complaints from residents and businesses about Robert Smith, 32, whistling loudly outside. The complaints resulted in a disorderly conduct charge, the Portland Press Herald reported Monday.

A Portland city ordinance lists whistling as a disorderly behavior, which can carry a fine up to $500.

The case was resolved when Smith promised prosecutors he would only whistle while walking, not while standing in one place.

"It came from God -- that's where it came from," Smith said of his whistling hobby. "God is showing me what I'm doing is OK. He shows me every day with laughter."
