6 January 2010
Between December 18 and 26, there were 1,424 reported mime arrests, according to the Los Angeles Police Department Annoying Perpetrator Division, a California Special Programs Department subdivision found in more than 40 counties. Last year, 1,416 arrests were made during the same period.
"With all the Christmas parties and holiday jail parties going on, a lot of people are out drinking and miming" said Stuart Marcel Fratkin, the local coordinator for the department. "It's amazing how the stats go up around Christmas."
