Did the shoe cause rebellion at Baghdad's July 14 Bridge?

In the many times that I have been at the square that leads to the July 14 Bridge and the Green Zone, I had never seen anyone object to soldiers closing off the road whle a convoy of some official passes by. But Wednesday was different. The drivers refused to stop, even when the soldiers pointed their rifles at them. Did Muntathar al Zaidi's shoe-throwing cause this?
