Occupy Denver protesters, November 2011.

Three people ticketed for showing their support for Occupy Denver, including one man who honked his horn, say they've been discouraged from going back to the protest.

The three testified Monday during a hearing in federal court accusing police and city officials of harassing demonstrators for exercising their First Amendment rights.

One woman was ticketed for blowing an air horn out of a car window to show support and a third supporter was ticketed for riding his bike on the sidewalk as he tried to film that ticketing.

Lawyers for the city said all three tickets have been dismissed and those cited have since returned to the protests. However, those ticketed said they haven't gone to the protest as much as before.
