Remember Imperial Stars? You know, the jerks whose "save the children" stunt shut down the 101 Freeway in Hollywood for hours in mid-October? Today the OC hip-hop rockers were in court: "Christopher Roy Wright, 32, David Paul Hale, 30, and Keith R. Yackey, 32, are charged with one felony count of conspiracy, two misdemeanor counts of resisting, obstructing or delaying Los Angeles police and California Highway Patrol officers, and one misdemeanor count each of creating a public nuisance and false imprisonment," says the Daily News.

All three men pleaded not guilty. Plus, the judge doubled their bail, to $20,000, which they'll need to bring with them to court on December 28th. He also went on record as saying he didn't find their stunt particularly funny. Join the club, your honor.
