Pennsylvania ‘Street Singer' Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct

A man known to police for singing the Beach Boys' song "Barbara Ann'' loudly as he walks through an eastern Pennsylvania city has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for two other alleged instances of nuisance behavior.

The Allentown Morning Call reports 61-year-old James Ochse disputes the charges. But he entered the pleas Tuesday anyway, hoping to shorten his probation for five previous citations and leave Allentown, where he says police have a "vendetta.''

In February, police say Ochse jumped on the hood of a moving car while jaywalking and banged on the windshield with a flashlight. Oches denies that, but police say it was captured by surveillance video. In April, he allegedly yelled obscenities at people waiting to buy tickets to an Elton John concert at PPL Center.
