Are Mimes Not Welcome in Buffalo Grove, IL ?

http://triblocal.com/buffalo-grove/2011/11/03/its-hard-out-there-for-a-mime/

A masked teen who took to the streets Tuesday night to pay homage to his favorite hip hop dance group was mistaken for a mime and asked by police to leave because “some residents apparently find mimes disconcerting,” according to police reports.

Sorin Dumitru, a 19-year-old from Romania, got home from work Tuesday with an itch to dance. But the space in the home where he is staying with relatives was too cramped, so he decided to head outside.

He grabbed a white mask, white gloves and black hat in an homage to the Jabbawockeez, his favorite hip hop dance group out of San Diego.
