From the "sitting-doing-nothing-is-now-illegal" dept,

A man was arrested while attending a committee meeting at the Arizona House of Representatives, for doing nothing more than wearing a Guy Fawkes mask and otherwise sitting silently and unobtrusively. Capitol police were called to arrest the man, raising a huge ruckus among the other attendees, shouting and chanting phrases such as "shame, shame" and "the whole world is watching".
