No Harm, No Foul

From Florida:

Cops stood with guns and rifles drawn, Wednesday, as teenager after teenager filed out of a Kissimmee home. The kids, with no school and too much time on their hands, caused some tense moments in the neighborhood.

Kissimmee police said they got a 911 call from someone who saw a person being stuffed into the trunk of a grey car. Officers climbed rooftops and peered over fences to surround a home on Peridot Circle, before bringing almost a dozen teenagers out, one by one, at gunpoint...

It turned out, Rosa's 15-year-old son had invited a bunch of friends over. One thing led to another and one of the kids wound up in the trunk. It was a teenage prank witnessed by a passerby who called 911 and set the whole thing in motion.


Go read the whole thing. Hat tip: Edwonks (see blogroll at left).

Adam Corolla has a theory that whenever something weird happens, it either has to have been in Germany or Florida. When he was on Love Line, people would call in and read news articles and Adam and Drew would guess where it was from. There was a theme song and everything.

I'm giving away my age here, but who didn't stick someone (or several someones) into a car trunk to get a reduced fee into the drive in movie? I wasn't there so can't really judge whether I would have called the cops, but today everything is taken to the nth degree, especially when it comes to children/teens; ie. A fight at school is now assault and lawsuits; a parent spanking a child is now abuse and removal from the home.
