PARK CITY, Utah, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- Police in Utah said a man was issued a citation for obstructing traffic when he rode a camel down the street to promote a movie.

Park City police said the man, identified in online postings as Next Anyextee, rode the camel down a busy street Friday while handing out flyers for his film, "Egypt Through the Glass Shop," which did not make it into this year's Sundance Film Festival, the Salt Lake City Deseret News reported Tuesday.

The police department said the man and his camel, reportedly named Moses, were escorted back to their truck and livestock trailer. They left the Park City area soon after, police said.
