Turns out that honking they heard in the middle of the night in Austin, Texas was the work
of Omar Ramos-Lopez, 20, a disgruntled worker laid off from a car
dealership who was tinkering online with a system meant to disable cars
when their owners haven't paid up. Employees at Texas Auto Center had
been getting up to 100 complaints at a time about horns going off or
cars not starting. Plus they were noticing weird changes in their
records - like rapper Tupac Shakur buying a 2009 vehicle even though he
was dead. This week police filed computer intrusion charges against
Ramos-Lopez.

"Omar was pretty good with computers." - Texas Auto Center manager Martin Garcia.
