A Woman Chained To A BBQ?

Each day at work, I sit next to the police scanner. Usually, it's pretty mundane. Occasionally some serious breaking news happens, and sometimes it's pretty hilarious. Last week, I overheard on the scanner that someone called police about a woman who was outside, handcuffed to a barbecue. My ears perked up. If true, it could be a big story of some poor woman held captive. I continued to listen as police officers and dispatchers talked back and forth on their radios. Police wanted a description of the woman, and exactly where she was and where the caller was. The dispatcher replied with the caller's location. He could see the woman from his bedroom window, the dispatcher said. Another officer chimed in on his radio and said he saw a woman, leaning against a barbecue, smoking. No handcuffs. In the newsroom, we were relieved. No one was in danger. But the story wasn't over/Alison Gene Smith, Scanner Traffic Blog, Twin Falls Times News. More here.
