This image provided by KVVU-TV shows a billboard with a mannequin dangling from a hangman’s noose near The Strip in Las Vegas. Authorities said calls began coming in early Wednesday Aug. 8, 2012, from drivers worried the dummy along Interstate 15 near was a real person. A Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman said the sign is a publicity stunt done in bad taste. A woman who answered the phone at Lamar Advertising Co. says the sign was not authorized and was being removed.
